Better Hens and Gardens


As I mentioned once before in SurvivalBlog, I recently ordered some large plastic tool boxes that carry the Dewalt brand name. When they arrived, I was thrilled to see that they weren’t made in China, but instead in Israel. They are fairly sturdy and quite reasonably priced at under $21 each. They also happen to be fairly covert for use as a “range box” for carrying handguns. With an inside length of 21” they will even fit an AR-15 pistol with arm brace if it is broken down into two halves. (And of course the BATFE just recently reversed their earlier restrictive policy on arm braces. Hooray!)
