My son and I each purchased an AK-47, (you know, just to have one)reasonably priced, mine a WASR type, his a GP75, both Romanian and the only fun we had was shooting em from the hip. Do all AKs beat the "H" out of your cheek or side of your face. Thought I'd have black eyes this morning as I shot one magazine from each side yesterday and one from the hip. That kick into the face, never experienced that before from any large caliber rifle. PS We have now finally, yes finally, completed filling 24 military surplus ammo boxes (half the 50 Cal boxes, half the smaller ones). Boxes are in very good shape. My question is on longevity. These boxes have that rubber ring around the top edge, so assume they seal good, and they are stored in our house where humidity not a problem at all. Stuck a couple dessicent packs in each box also. This is my permanent ammo and I have every caliber I need. Can I leave these boxes alone for a couple decades or more, until I'm not around anymore, at which time I'd guess my son will probably open them immediately. Also, some of my ammo is in the 500 round bags you get off the internet. Will the bags of ammo, with cartridges sitting on cartridges, i.e., nothing between the cartridges, just a huge bag of ammo, will they deteriorate faster than if they were in regular 50 or 20 round boxes? My face is sore.
