    Well, I had to go online today and spend 150 bucks. Not all bad, but I wasn't planning on it right now.

    So I'm laying in bed last night and sometime about 0:dark:30 hear a lot of crashing and thumping coming from my basement. First thought was the dog had gone into the basement. Dog was laying on the foot of my bed. Next thought, because I live in an old house, critter had gotten into the basement somehow. But since have kids, I can't lay there and hope nothing is really wrong.

    Well, I used to have shelves under my basement stairs. Used to, as in they were there when I went to bed. Too much weight finally got to them and they collapsed. Ammo all over the floor. I'll be sweeping up .22 rimfire for days. Boxes of pistol ammo on the floor and more sliding toward the edges of the shelves. 30 cal and .223 everywhere.

    I had a few thousand rounds in cans on the concrete floor, but now all of it has to go in cans on the floor. What wasn't in cans before is stacked up on my workbench waiting delivery of a dozen 50 cal cans.

    Anyway, just thought I'd toss out that e-bay has a surprising amount of ammo cans for sale in various conditions, lot sizes and prices. I found a dozen for $110 plus shipping. Works out to $12.92 a can, when local stores want 25 bucks per can.

    Search army/navy stores. Our locals have them for 10 but you have to do some searching to find one that's in good condition.
