    Does anyone here put stickers on their ammo cans? Maybe it's just me, but I like a little personalization on my otherwise bland ammo can. Unfortunately, I just had to trash my "personalized" ammo can and am trying to find some new decals to create a new one. Once I get my new ammo can started I will post a picture, but if anyone else has something to share, I'd love to see it!

    I color code mine by caliber, but other than identifying caliber I don't make any other changes to them.

    I put a white 3x2 Avery label on the top, identifying what's in the can. ;)

    yeah, i used to print out nice color labels for my ammo cans. i got lazy though.

    however, i have my gear organized in large rubbermaid type bins that are covered in gun stickers, if that's what you meant. this pic was taken some time ago. it's quite a bit worse now :)

    Nah. Stickers go on the gun safe. Labels go on the ammo cans, caliber and type. :)

    Basicly by caliber, but I ran out of labels. Hope the floor holds up. (LOL)

    Blue masking tape with the contents Sharpie penned on the tape.

    Bumper stickers on GI green ammo cans is un-American!!

    It would be like defacing the Mona Lisa!

    .....Now that's a bit of a stretch.... GI green is much more appealing than that "masterpiece" :neener:

    I label the can with the caliber and number of rounds. Inside is all the pertinent info if the ammo is reloaded. I pull ammo from the cans to put in smaller containers for the range. That container also has the info in it.

    Nothing fancy, just labels. Might be printed, might be from a label maker, might be hand written.

    Labels only on my metal GI green cans.

    Wish I'd bought more of these robust plastic cans when Big 5 was selling 'em. The replacements are not nearly as strong.

    Just the Avery labels on my ammo cans to indicate contents by caliber/weight. BTW I used almost a full label cartridge putting one on the front lift handle and one on the top of each can.

    Most of my ammo cans are repainted brown. The only identification on the cans are tied on tags with contents listed. I like the plain look. Need to get smaller cans most of mine are the larger sizes. I do have a couple smaller one's for grab and go that the wife can lift also. Don't know what it is, I have a bunch of stickers I just can't bring myself to put them on anything.

    Jewelry hang tags, no need to scrape stickers off if I change what is in the can. I write basic info like caliber or if everything in there is reloaded for a certain gun like a M1 Garand it will say (M1 En-block clips 480 rounds) so I don't open it when I am looking for 30-06 ammo.

    I've always liked the government property marks such as the British arrow and the U.S. bomb/grenade. I just personalized the bomb and spray painted it on my range box to make it stand out during training and fun days at the range.

    I put load(s) and caliber. For a couple of calibers I have different loads and keep them in separate cans.

    Load, caliber, quantity, reload info inside on an index card

    I have them from flat black to hot pink. I pick them up at garage sales and auctions when I can, and if they're rusting pretty good, I hit them with the wire wheel and repaint them flat black.

    The daughters' wanted their own cans, so I took a couple of .30 cal cans and cleaned them up, painted them krylon pink and sealed it with an epoxy coat to make them shiny.

    They've put all kinds of stickers on them, from Hello Kitty, Disney Princesses and Hannah Montana to the Stickers about Hunting, A Girls Hunt Too! sticker that's pink and white, NRA stickers, and several Manufacturer's Logos.

    Keeps them occupied and they get new stickers every time we take a trip to our range.

    Yup add stickers as necessary or when I have a bunch of the same ones. I sometimes make stencils and rattle can them if I'm really bored. On the inside of my reload can lids I put a label with all the reload info so I know exactly what they are.

    I like that idea, I've been trying to figure out something based on the flaming bomb for myself for a while.

    Labels with caliber and quantity go on my ammo boxes. Stickers and decals go on my gun cabinet and gun safe.
