M&M Candy and Choke Tubes
« on: August 30, 2014, 07:42:36 pm »
Where can you find an inexpensive storage container for those extra long choke tubes that are so popular these days?

Well there is one available at any convenience store in the U.S. Best of all it costs less than a buck and a half of our devalued currency.

What is it: M&M Candy Tubes.

Enjoy the candy, peel the labels off, clean with hot water, dry and then store your long choke tubes.

You can even get different colors to ID different choke tubes!

    With that title I was expecting a much more I,interesting conversation.  K wonder if frozen m&ms would survive being shot?

    Good idea though.

    Well, considering all the odd shaped pellets manufacturers seem to be loading these days, it would not suprise me to see a "New And Improved" buckshot load with M&M shaped pellets!

    That's cool, thanks for the idea.

    On an m&m note, I miss the crispy m&m's. My childhood rocked with them, but they are no longer produced in our country.

    Rumour is that other countries still  have them. Same way with Oreos cereal, but I'm not travelling to north Korea for that. You can keep your damn commie cereal  :bash.

    A bit of a derail, but it did have m&m's in it  :-[.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    I don't THINK I'll ever have to face down routers in the streets.

    I should hope not. Mobs of rogue woodworking tools would suck to repel.

    Whaaaaaaat?!?!

    Oh, man. I am so happy I derailed the thread then. I haven't had those since like 2005!

    Thanks, Avenger!

    I mean get free candy just from buying a container for choke tubes.
    Akin to getting free peppermint, from buying Altoids (tm)to hold accessories, and small parts for not only shotguns, other firearms. [ like "O" rings, bolt handles, receiver pins...etc.]

    Umm...maybe the candy manufacturers are onto to something and all this time have been assisting firearm folks all along... ;)
