Trying to find containers for accessory / storage.

    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum or not, if it's not then I apologize and request it moved to one that is.

    Anyways I've been wanting some nice, heavy duty containers that I can modify and store all kinds of things in. Be it extra ammunition or just parts. A friend of mine used to use those military surplus medical transport chests for 'Ham station in a box' and I thought those were awesome.

    Anyways, it's a little short for my taste though 31" long, would rather have something perhaps 40ish which would be long enough for just about anything someone would want to put in them.

    Is there anything similar in durability but longer? Only thing that comes to mind is a footlocker but those generally aren't quite as sturdy and hard to find one longer than that medical chest.

    Pelican cases come to mind... Google them.

    Yeah, I know about Pelican cases. They're rather high end on price though, was hoping for something less expensive that with some work could be turned into something decent.

    Do they need to be air/water tight?

    Nope, though I suppose it'd be nice if they were. Basically though I'm just trying to think of (preferably metal) containers that would be similar to the surplus containers I linked, but longer.

    Those are actually quite nice. I'll have to see if there's any surplus vendors nearby that have those. Thanks Magoo, any other container ideas are cool too. :)
