Paint the ammo can white with a large red cross and list with paint its purpose and contents on exterior of the box.
Use a crushed split-shot lead sinker and light wire on the lid latch to make an easily opened "seal" that can can be broken with very little effort but discourages looky loos. Also a way to make sure the contents are still intact with just a quick visual check .
A well painted ammo box is much less expensive, is easier to secure, and will last much longer than plastic in most southwest environments. I have seen commercial Colorado river runners use the same 50 cal ammo/medical box for 25+ years, averaging 150 days per year on the river and still going strong.
What do you plan to include?
Sanitary napkins, shoelace, alum, plastic bag & vasolene, duct tape? ( ie battle compress, tourniquet, quick clot, sucking chest wound.... and everything else)
Instructions for use?
How about telephone number for closest emergency services, gps quardinates and exact address of the rural(?) range for EMT/life-flight helo response?
I think a talking defibulator would be the best medical addition to our local range when the average age and fittness of the users is considered.
