    Wanted: Big-Ass Ammo Storage Box

    Well, maybe not big-ass, but a decent size.
    Prefer something like this.

    But will consider anything. Even a big plastic ammo storage box if it is secure and lockable.
    Cheep and local to Christchurch.

    Or if anyone knows where one can be sourced locally, I would appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers

    Only that there is an ammo shortage which seems to be spreading worldwide. Most ammo is coming out of the US and they are running 24/7 and cant keep up with local supply alone. And biden will probably try shutting them down for his 100 day lock-up of the country he is proposing.

    Talking to a gun shop earlier today who recommended storing enough for 6 months.

    But really, I was running out of space anyway, so its just time to do something about it, and instead of getting a piddly little tin that is full with a brick of 22 ammo, I might as well get something decent.

    Cheers for everyones answers and suggestions, they are all greatly appreciated.

    Bugger, I have just this minute walked in after being down to Super Cheap and buying a not-so-cheap decent sized lockable plastic box. Thanks for the opportunity @Buzo, much appreciated.

    Cheers all, have sorted my problem (for now), but still may consider any metal case such as in the first post.
