epography reader KAW71 was kind enough to share the following preparedness tip with our readers…Ammo Saver Pouches.
I have started packaging ammo in magazine quantities in food saver pouches. I think it is useful for several reasons.
1. Ammo is protected from the elements.
2. There is no wasted space in the packaging because it is basically shrink wrapped. Sometimes there is a lot of air in the original ammo boxes that takes up valuable space.
4. You only have to open a pouch when you need to reload a magazine and have nothing left over in partial boxes to take up space, make noise or be exposed to the elements.
I can’t imaging someone else hasn’t already thought of this, but everyone I have told about it thinks it is a great idea.
Thanks to KAW71 for sharing this idea and picture with us. I’m still partial to ammo boxes for storing ammunition around the house or homestead…but I think that this is the perfect solution for storing extra ammunition quietly and with economy of space in a bug out bag…just don’t forget to keep your magazines full! Looks like KAW71 is packaging a magazine’s worth in each bag…what a great idea!
