Do More With Your Ammo Cans (7 Ideas)

Do More With Your Ammo Cans (7 Ideas)

Prepper’s love their ammo cans.  Today, I was thinking about how useful ammo cans are and wondered what other people have done.  So, these are some things I’ve found.

1. MODULAR STORAGE FOR YOUR AMMO CAN

One of the problems with ammo cans is that if you shove everything into it, you have to pull out everything to find what you are looking for (Murphy’s Law says that what you are looking for will be on the bottom of your ammo can).  So, here’s an easy way to organize your can.

I came across some modular ammo can trays on eBay.  They were $11.95.  Then, I stumbled across them on a Tactical Store for just $7.95.  Link is here.

This picture is from their website.  I am pulling a direct link to the picture here: opplanet-mtm-ammo-can-organizer-insert-sold-as-3-pack-aco.jpg

The above trays look pretty interesting and the price seems pretty good.  I like how they have tabs for easy removal from the ammo can.
DeWitt Plastics also offers some closable plastic containers that fit into ammo cans.  The link is here.  Image address is http://catalog.dewittplastics.com/Asset/Ammo-Box-Inserts.gif.
Here’s one for the AR15 owners out there.  Though this is a plastic can instead of metal, it still looks pretty useful.  Link is here.  Image address is: http://www.gggaz.com/images/detailed/MTM_50_Cal-Ammo_Can_With_Foam_Insert.jpg
2. CONVERT YOUR AMMO CAN INTO FIREARM STORAGE
Next, I came across Mr. Ammo Can’s foam insert for a pistol.  See this link.  At a price of $12.99, you can turn your ammo can into a pretty hefty gun case.
The picture link is here: http://mrammocan.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/30cal2.jpg (for some reason their picture will not post, so you will need to click the link to see the photo).
3. CONVERT YOUR AMMO CAN INTO A FIRST AID KIT
So, what should you put in your first aid ammo can?  Why not find out from the military!  If you want a pretty good list of items, you can probably reference this link (link is here).

4. CONVERT YOUR AMMO CAN INTO A SURVIVAL KIT

5. AMMO CAN SOLAR PANEL SETUP

In my searching, I found an article from Prepper Link showing you how to convert your ammo can into a portable power bank.  Link is here.

  

6. AMMO CAN 2 METER REPEATERS

7. AN AMMO CAN STOVE

I’m not sure how practical this one is, but it definitely got my interest!

Here’s one that seems a little more practical.

Here’s an ammo can grill.

ePrepper is going offline this month and will likely be offline before the end of January 2017, unless I can find someone to either take over the site or migrate its content to. Properly maintaining the site has been taking up too much time and cutting into my family. I would like to see the content of ePrepper get absorbed into a larger site. If you run a blog and are interested using content from ePrepper, please email dan [dot] michaels [at] eprepper [dot] net.
