    lol, i doubt it, but that would be cool.

    They've got quite a few Canon safes in at the Hillsboro store right now, along with a large pallet of these cans.

    But with the bulk buys come Quantity Discounts. :)

    One of my Lottery List dreams: to open up a Tactical Outfitter that buys ammo in lots so big Lake City gives us half-off the wholesale price. (Deep discounts passed along to NWFA and other selected firearm community Supporting Members, too! :D )

    Sigh... I have to win the Powerball before I can even start to think about indulging my dreams of being the American homefront's Yuri Orlov... LOL

    Look into surplus. I've found them for more than reasonable.
    50cal/B-grade $10
    Fat 50/B-grade $12

    I missed the 50/30 option. I have a supply, so I must have skimmed the posting.
    Not bad if 30cal cans are of use.
    Bigger is better

    For those of you who make it a point to buy USA made goods, these are not for you.

    Isn't that price a bit high for a china import?

    Yes, label on the bottom says made in China for Heritage, NY.

    It's a metal ammo can, quality seems alright, price felt alright for the two cans being brand new.

    I'll stick with the surplus ammo cans. I like the authentic look with the writing on the outside and Made in "Merica.

    last time I bought ammo cans they were $8 each.

    Guy on here ordered a pallet and had a ton extra. I don't know what constitutes A or B grade but no rust and good seals on all mine.

    I bet a group buy on these would go well.

    I buy the real deal.
    Check locally for surplus shops in your area. As a last effort, ebay. Be sure to check shipping costs.

    Never saw a nice looking can at a surplus shop for ten bucks. Depending on their condition, it was 10 and upwards, purely for the nicer condition/appearance.

    If people don't want to buy these, i do not care, however the price and condition is good, which is why i posted it.

    I find it funny that Costco sells these items, but it not friendly to permit holders.
