Need ammo storage!

Guys,
I'm looking for some kind of Ammo locker for my garage...it's got to be lockable and heavy duty. Somewhere in the 100-150 dollar range, and I don't care what it looks like. Preferably steel or heavy aluminum. I can use padlocks if need be. Mil Surp is OK too.
Any ideas??

So, are you looking for just some kind of metal cabinet or a purpose built ammo locker? If all you want is a metal cabinet I would check out some used office furniture stores. Also, home centers would have new models, so you might check them out.

MilSurp ???

Have you considered a Milsurp metal case, as an option. I use two 20MM cases and they are very secure. Didn't have to sink a bunch of cash into them. I've seen a tone of different styles in the sportman's guide. Nothig fancy, just very secure and dry. .....

Be Safe !!!

Kind of an addition to the idea of looking at used furniture you might also look for used Flammable Storage cabinets. They are kind of pricey new, but I have occasionally seen them for sale used pretty cheap.

Hard to beat a Stack On for what you are looking for. Do the google and you should find several offerings.

This looks like a good deal (airtight 4ft x 1ft x1ft $100):

I use an office-type locker, sheet steel, 6 shelves, quite sturdy, and in black paint. Holds the weight quite well and the stuff is out of sight. Cost was about $75 at a used-office furniture store locally.

Here is mine....

This is an old double walled cabinet - the original lock is not used as I never got the key when I picked it up at a yard sell. I added a latch with padlock and it is fairly secure. Also, have a dehumidifer in it to have keep moisture down.
