    I'm down to a few empty cans left. So thought I'd go to the gov.auction site and bid on another lot..
    It was 6 years ago when I purchased 2000 cans, at that time I paid 69 cents a can. I sold some, gave a lot away, and kept a few for myself.

    I realize now I should have kept them all..At the time I paid 1380$ for all 2000 cans

    Todays bids are going at 8$+ a can.

    2000 cans for 16,000$ now that would have been a good investment

    Pretty much everything is that way now days. :(

    Who knew gas price would go up this high, should have bought 10000000000 drum cans. :bluelaugh:

    Anyways, do you use them for just ammo storage? I have couple boxes, and pretty heavy for range day or moving around.

    too many people wanting to make a buck/living off them nowadays with all the preppers wanting them. Same goes for alot of other stuff that use to be cheap and unwanted.

    I think I can get all you want for $6-7 each. I live in Bellingham.
