front range rocket boxes?

Having trouble finding a couple of 20mm rocket boxes. Any ideas on where I might locate a couple in the greater Denver area? I've tried the usual suspects- Jax, DRE, AAA.....

They also have....
odd little glass vials and droppers, good for my water treatment kit
heavy seat belt strapping. various webbing, mostly military
heavy duty vinyl upholstery, I made semi-dry bags for the kitchen stuff

Rocket Boxes

I have two rocket boxes that I would sell for $25 each. Would trade for large wet suit. DRE sells for $45.

Army Surplus For. Less on Pecos in Westminster has rockets for $35. They also had SAW style (fatter) 50m cans in pristine condition for $29. I found them very useful. They have a location down south denver too but I haven't been there.

I have also been to Arvada Army Navy Surplus and their rockets are 39. I shopped to both places to have the pick of the litter.

Both shops have a tons of cool gear so give yourself some time!
