Flea Market Finds : Ammo Cans

IMG_1625
Bought this 2 Ammo Cans in local Saturday Flea Market. 

Due to their durable construction, used metal ammunition boxes are popularly re-used for general storage and other purposes. 

An ammunition box is a container designed for safe transport and storage of ammunition. Countless uses include safe transportation of shotgun and rifle shells, tools, perishables, and any hunting camp. Some enthusiasts and investors collect historical ammunition boxes. Ammo Cans are also known as military surplus ammunition containers, army navy bullets, government issued magazine boxes, weaponry canisters replicas, vintage metal bullet shells carrier.
