Bringing my wife to NYC for an earlier morning doctors appointment (few months ago)....right after we parked the car in the garage and walked out, here comes this guy with a wooden box putting out at the street for pick up...upper east side garbage - they live well up there.

I take one look and stop in my tracks...wife says "..that would make a great ammo box" (love that women) - "grab it".

I say no way...crazy cant grab that and bring it back to the car...its already parked.

She says - "grab it or you will regret it" - so I grabbed it....guy at the garage was stumped but got my car - lol

Anyway - got the bug after I finished the Enfield project... so I removed strange shelves inside, stripped, sanded (not with the same detail) & painted inside & out...and my wife was right great ammo box.

Now I gotta fill it - right? (Happy wife happy life)

Looks great. Nice job. Can you lift it when it's full of ammo?

When I moved I bought 2 of those large sportsman totes with wheels on one side to move my assorted ammo. They were just plain looking so I had one of the mover help me lift in to my truck and he all most drop a nut doing it. He asked me what do you have in here lead and rocks? I just laughed. So if your going to fill it up just make sure it's in the spot you want it.

Your wife has a sharp eye & ingenuity. Saw the box & said it would make a nice ammo box! She's a keeper :)
Get a dolly & rest it on top of the dolly to move it around easily.

Just boxes....or zip lock bags for reloads...and a Everdry dehumidifier
