POTD: Storing Ammunition

    Photo Of The Day – Today we are looking at how the Schriever Air Force Base store some of their ammunition.

    The base is named after General Bernard Adolph Schriever.

    As you can see there is not a Magpul PMAG in sight, only metal magazines. I am not going to judge, it’s just something I can point out.

    Some of the magazines look really worn.

    The photo is taken by Airman 1st Class Jonathan Whitely, 50th Space Wing Public Affairs.

    The 50th Logistics Readiness Flight is responsible for the armory at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Aug. 14, 2019.

    Units such as the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and the 50th Security Forces Squadron store some of their ammunition and weapons in the warehouse.

    How do you store your magazines?

    Which is your favorite magazine for (longer) storage? Do you prefer steel or polymer?

    Last year we ran a pretty interesting story on the subject. If you didn’t read it check it out here:
