    I always get someof these things every year. 3 or 4 of them have escaped to my reloading eq. Not air tight but more durable than plastic and cheaper than an ammo can. ;)

    I think they could actually be made air tight for nearly free if I wanted long- term storage.

    probably use rice or cat litter as a desicant and silicone the lid shut.

    I was thinking silicone the seams and then seal the lid to the body with metalized tape.

    Are you looking at a semi permanent seal for long term?

    I've taken those things and scuffed up the inside of the lid to give it a bit of texture, then run a very thin bead of tub and tile caulk in the corner of the lid. Let the caulk cure for 12-24 hours and you have a water/air tight gasket and a removable lid.

    My grandfather showed me the trick. He used the old cookie tins to store his RC modeling, and reloading things inside.

    Or get a vacuum food sealer or some of those bags you use a vacuum cleaner hose to suck the air out of. :D

    Everybody's kit should have at least one box of tampons in it.
     
  11. Tampons make a good field dressing for a GSW

    Salt, ground black pepper, tampons, maxi pads (the big sanitary napkin kind) and superglue. Also women's nylons for compression dressings.

    And condoms! For something or other. Can't remember what now :confused:

    Yep, forgot the condoms. No ruffles, ridges, ribs, ticklers, spermicide, or lube. Just old school condoms. Keep it all in a sandbag stored in a willy pete bag.

    Not even going to ask why salt and pepper is on that list....:confused::what:

    Salt is good to take the itch out of bee stings and bug bites as well as all poison ivy/oak.

    EDIT: Salt mixed to a paste with water and usually mud on a leaf to make a patch.

    Ground black pepper is a mediocre coagulant for small to medium sized cuts and punctures when you don't have quick clot.

    You should also keep a mylar blanket, plastic wrap, and nitrile gloves handy as well.
