Had to qual on the M16 today. After we were done I grabbed a bunch of stripper clips and a spoon. Is it worth breaking open a 300 round sealed bag of ammo and putting it in the clips or is the ammo better of staying in the sealed bag. You think I should just toss those clips out or what? I figured it wouldn't hurt of grab them..... Better to have and not need right?

Well, if this is a [b]real[/b] SHTF question, the answer would naturally be. " You'd better have that ammo in mags strapped around your legs." NRA4FR![@:D][-=(_)=-]

I personally wouldn't break open anything that is hermitically sealed until it looks like we are really going to go for it. Just toss the stripper clips in a box, and wait, hopefully you will never need it, but just in case. Some folks have to pay real money for those things.

Agree. I can't believe it but *I* need still more stripper clips. [:D]
