Here are the details: March 25th I will be in NorCal hooking you guys up. Walmart in Milpitas forthe San Jose area from 5am to 11am. From there to South Sac, 500 Broadway (its a Clagunenrs Shop).Sorry, but i can only do one day, so if you ahve to send your wife, buddy, or dog to pick these up, lets make it happen. There are plenty of guys willing pick up cans for other people, Also in the Sac area, Dreadnaught is willingto hold the cans at his shop if you cannot make it. I sent out PM's to everyone for QTY and Size. I will be loading my truck Wed Afternoon I look foward to meeting you all.

I just got home, and wanted to say thanks to all who made this trip a success. I will check the thread and all my PM's tomorrow (later today i guess) and have the Moderators close this thread. Thanks again to ALL.

How many cans do you have?
Your prices are extremely fair IMO.

Nor Cal is a large place, I would take ~3 of the SM and 3 of the Med. if you make it around Sac.

I would take four small, if within 35 minutes of South San Francisco.

bender152
03-09-2010, 9:57 PM
maybe hwy 1!

Have you taken 1 before? It's pretty winding.

It's a nice drive in a sports car, but if you've got a truck or SUV loaded with ammo cans, you might be hating it.

And if you decide you've had enough, you're stuck. 1 is not near 101, let alone the 5.

1 is also a much longer route.

Requiem
03-09-2010, 9:59 PM
Where are you going to be located on the day that you're here? I'd like to be put down for 3 medium size ($10 .50 cal cans) if you're close enough!

Since I'm flying out of town the afternoon of the 25th and will be unable to make the connection, I'd be interested in finding someone to grab me some cans as suggested above. I want 6 .50 cal cans. Is there anyone from the central valley willing to meet up a couple of times for money/can transfer??? I live in the Stockton area....

Seems to me he will be coming up I-5 so somewhere along that route would be my guess as to where the meeting spot will be. I have an idea that could help let more people get to him. Instead of heading all the way to Sac why not stop at the I-5 and Hwy 12 area in the Lodi area.
This would give some of the bay area guys a way to get to him by coming out Hwy 12 and also some could come out Hwy 4 from the Concord area to 12. There is plenty of spots in that area to meet one being the large Truck Stop.

Anyway just and idea.


I would be in for 4 large cans. But it will depend on where of course.

zeke2517

Not sure if you were responding to mine but those are just the most convenient pickup locations for me.

I need to know where to go to pick these up before i ask for some time off of work. Tentatively, i'd be willing to purchase quite a few more boxes if there are people around the east bay/south bay that want them as well. I live in Walnut Creek but commute to the south bay every day.

I like the Rio Visa/lodi location meeting. Its between Sacramento and the Bay area. From what I can quickly tell, most of us are within those areas. That would also be the easiest for the deliveryman to get to.

just my $0.02

rct442
03-10-2010, 2:30 PM
OP can you get a poll up or something?

I'm in for 2 Medium & 1 Small. Is there anybody in the SF/Peninsula area willing to pick them up for me?

Rio Vista is also another great option and that would really make it like a midway point for those coming from Sac/Stockton and the BayArea would be close to equal distances for everyone that way.

If you take a look at this map you can see

I don't want to hijack this thread but do want to pass along the info...

I make foam inserts for ammo cans that turn an ordinary ammo can into a gun case and a saddle bag for the ammo cans that make it more of a range case.

I started this thread about 4 weeks ago regarding these products so if your interested I'll save you all the details and you can read all about it there - http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=275353

If enough people are interested I might be able to send a box of them along with zeke2517 when he brings the cans up north...of course that is if he's interested in that idea as well. (I just pm'd him about it, we'll see)

ALRIGHT!! What do you all think about San jose from 6am to 1130am, Drive to Sac and staty there from 1230- 6pm? Do all you San Jose, Sac and everywhere in between think you can make it to one of those 2 location in one of those 2 times?
i think this might be the best way to work it. . any advice? . . Running out of time. and i jsut want to make this work for the most amount of people. if you cant make it can you send someone or PM another Calgunner to hook you up?

Time Edit thanks to BENDER: Arriving in San Jose 5am leaving San Jose 11am. arriving in SAC 1pm- leaving SAC 6pm.

PS I will be send out a PM in a couple days to everyone who says they are interested. this way i can get an accurate count so i make sure i bring the correct qty of each size. Thanks

03-18-2010, 11:06 PM
San Jose works for me.

As for your plan, Sacramento is 2 to 2.5 hours from San Jose. So you may need to adjust your times listed.

Also, leave yourself some time for lunch. I'm sure a few of us will be willing to throw in a few bucks for a really nice meal for you.

If it's going to be San Jose, I suggest setting up shop for the day in the parking lot of Milpitas Walmart. They sell ammo there, one of the few places around here that do, and most of us that go looking for ammo in the area go to this one. That way, we can buy some ammo cans from you, then drop into the Walmart to get ammo to fill them up with!!! Yippeee!! Milpitas is right next to San Jose, pretty much the same thing anyways.I will buy 2 medium cans either way.

For anyone on the Peninsula or East Bay, i frequent Pacifica and i stay in Walnut Creek.

For those of you who cannot make it to the south bay on the pick-up day, send me a PM and let me know if you need me to pick up cans. I am okay with fronting most of the $$ upfront and distributing the cans as time permits (depending on the amount of cans).

Milpitas Walmart sounds like a prime location.

Yo. Myself and one other member are in the NorthBay (Im an hour north of Frisco myself). Im getting 12+cans. I sent him a PM (mabye I can get his ***** for him too). I can't really make it to San Jose, but depending on your route to Sac-o-tomatoes I can maybe meet you along the I-80 or something.

Sac and san jose are both a 2 hour drive for me.

^^^^ Walmart Milpitas sounds Perfect!^^^^^^looks good on Mapquest

thanks Wild Squid

Milpitas Walmart is a GREAT location and has a huge parking lot where you can set up camp. Maybe you can set up out by the Automotive part of Walmart parking lot where there usually isn't any parking issues...

As already stated in my previous post, I'm in for 10 mediums, but may get some smalls depending on how many I can fit in the hatch of my vette :)

I can make those times work. Maybe we could meet at the WalMart in West Sac off Reed? By the Ikea? Close to 80/50/5...

Walmart Supercenter Store #3652
755 Riverpoint Court
West Sacramento, CA 95605

Actually the IKEA lot would be a better location since it is visible from the freeway and has a much larger lot. Either one of these is a great location though.

Ammo cans...ammo cans. Will pick up by Milpitas Walmart(if this is the finalized location for Bay Area) and thanks for very early start time. Update for my order: Originally was 4 small and 2 meds. Would like to add another medium so that makes it 3 mediums and 4 small.

Got my cans and cans for Cal. He's in a black pickup with a tarp covering the bed which is piled a mile high with cans, it's hard to miss.

He's packed to maximum capacity but he says he will not have any extras if people start asking for aditional cans. Some have already cancelled and some people have picked up extra. As of now it's first come first serve for the people on his list.

He said that he was leaving Milpitas no later than 11:00 when I saw him early this morning. I was there at about 6:30 and he was loading out cans like crazy to folks. He only brought what was ordered and didn't think he would have any extras. Had it all in the back of a short box Chevy p/u.

Nice guy

What you didn't see was that there's SM can inside a MED can and SM cans inside LG can ... you know what I mean. He took the trouble of consolidating as much as he. The Ammo Can are really nice. I was there with Sparky at 5AM. It's DARK at 5AM! :D
