how about glow in the dark paint or kids' stickie numbers.
Glow in the Dark Paint - Solvent Based
raised numbers used for home addresses. 2" numbers would tell a blindman what was in the can.
I prefer to be promethian than epimethian.
I'd get a lot more reading done on this forum if you would quit making me go look stuff up Chell.
Mythological or political is the question.
i dont have the green ammo cans, but I use rubbermaid containers, and different ones for different types of ammo. Smaller ones for pistol, Action Packers for rifle (one for 5.56/.223) and a Larger for the other rifles, and a different type for shotgun. (considering I only have 6 different calibers to keep track of, i find it easier) and a lack of storage space too
How do you pick them up? A full .30cal ammo can is quite heavy. A .50 cal would be much more so. But, the great thing about them is they're rock solid and you can pick them up and not be gentle with themm.
I store batteries in a small Tupperware container and I have to be careful with it--it just won't handle the load. What kind do you use? I would like to switch my batteries to that kind. If yours can handle a lot of ammo, it should have no problems with batteries.
i like ammo cans,dry,water tight..(i need ALL ammo in dry,water tight cans that i can pick up and move in a HURRY) i like more ammo..all sizes i use...maybe some i would like to need. but,i think a few boxes.... of a little of everything.... placed in different locations...around my place---upstairs,downstairs,garage,basement,shop,garden shed,under the wood pile, out by the pond-anyplace I MIGHT BE when i have a SUDDEN need for ammo...might be nice.
not so much in 1 place for people to see and get upset about
not so much in 1 place to be lost ( fire.theft, ect.)
Here are generic examples of what i have, and yes the bigger one is about 1/2 to 2/3 full its EXTREMELY Heavy, (about 65 lbs or so)
6 containers total, quick to load and go if needed
More like pragmatic everyday living....promethian forethought is best...but epimethian afterthought is better than utter thoughtlessness...at least one has the benefit of learning in hindsight from the consequences of a lack of forethought. If one gives some thought to what might have been worth thinking about prior to an event happening that not much thought was given to, then one may learn methods of thinking that may result in avoiding the same kind of snafu in the future...now that your head is probably hurting...have I given you something to think about?
I know you think you understand what you thought was said, but what you heard was not what was meant. And there is NO bicycle riding allowed in this closet.
Interesting approach, I am involved with mechanical design. We present that as hindsight is cheap it is foresight they pay the bucks for...
Another, rules are intended to be broken, if one is sharp enough to break them. That also applies to a competitor's patents.
I use stencils made from cardboard and an exacto knife. Then spray paint. I'll post pictures when I earn that privilege.
I take your point with regards to the cost benefit values of forethought vs afterthought in terms of rewarding innovation. However in the realm of survival, in some situations, a person gets one shot at getting it right, else the consequences of getting it wrong can be considerable. In the event that a wrong choice / decision / action is taken, and one survives it...it behoves one to learn from the experience else, there may not be second chances next time around.
I agree, rules can be a useful guide, but should be tempered by their relevance to particular situations. Usually rules of thumb can save a lot of time, effort and heartache, as they are usually derived from long experience in what works in most situations...and what probably will not work, or work as well in many situations. Rules need be assessed and broken where necessary....but one need have sound reasons for breaking rules.
