I now that there are all kinds of different things that can be used for cache containers. I have seen some really great and creative ones out there. (I even used an idea I got from an IBCrashen cache on one of mine)

I really like the ammo cans though, and I know they are really popular up in my neck of the woods. They just seem more convenient and very durable.

Can anyone tell me where I can get my hands on some locally (Duluth area)? Is there a military surplus store around, or do I need to order them on the internet?

Thanks!

Is there a Fleet Farm nearby? They usually have 3-4 sizes available.

Unfortunately, no Fleet Farms close to us Sad . I guess Baxter, MN or Wausau, WI would be the closest.

I haven't found any locally. I have bought all mine online.

Glens Army Navy in Grand Rapids carrys ammo cans. They have new metal and plastic ones. And usually a good selection of used ones in various conditions and for various prices. The used ones I have bought there I paid 3 to 4 bucks for them.

Minnesota Surplus. There's one downtown, and one on the west end. Lots of ammo cans in all kinds of sizes! Very Happy
