Really? Its rare that they are out, but they can be hard to get ahold of for retailers. You might check back occasionally.

I know that they have flirted with the idea of buying some imported "knockoffs" to keep supply consistent. Thats not really their style (importing items from China), but they ARE a business after all.

but can you see its opposition | comes a-rising up sometimes | that it's dreadful and position | comes blacking in my mind | ....and then I see a darkness

Found some boxes --- random story

Okay, so after calling SW Washington Surplus and being told they do not have 20mm Ammo cans I decided to make a trip over state lines anyway.

First set of directions from meister-google put me about 5 miles away. After one stop and reset of navigator made it to the store. Interesting place to say the least. They have quite a few cans --- maybe 100 - 150 of different sizes.

And what do I find, some really big boxes and a large quantity.

Sticker Shock --- $44.99 each. WTF???

I get the guy to sell me 3 for $120, double check that the Eco Safe toilet they have there fits all of them. Boxes are in very, very good condition.

As I am checking out he says, "these are the big ones, the 40mm." I am like, no they aren't, these are the M548, see, it says right on it. His reply --- they are labeled as 40mm.

Long story short --- they had them all along just didn't realize what they were. $40 a pop is expensive, I was really shooting for $30, but they are in great condition, gasket is like new and I have piece of mind.

Now I just need to remove the plastic handles and the side bracing on one-side.
