    Where do you purchase desiccant? I see other members recommend putting them in ammo cans of ammo.

    Google it, most places sell it. I put it in all my ammo cans, even if they are in the safe where I have dehumidifier. No use opening your can when you really need it and your shells dont work. Take it out though before they seize your ammo so it will rust away.

    Wait for the Sunday paper, pull out the 50% off coupon for Michael's Craft store and pick up the largest bag of flower drying silica they have for half off.

    Take old nylons/pantyhose, cut off a good part of the leg, tie one end, fill with the "Cat Litter" and then tie off the other end. Get the stuff that has the larger crystals.

    When you want to rejuvenate the stuff, just cut the end off the nylon bag, pour into a deep cake or roasting pan, put it in the oven @240 degrees for 6-8 hours. Or just put it in the cat box and buy new stuff for the gun safe or ammo box;)
