David Higginbotham is seized with a fit of nostalgia: "Where have all the Spam Cans Gone?" This is mysterious to me for only someone who has NOT opened many spam cans -- and slashed his/her hands on the metal -- could pine for them with sincerity.
Also, as I have written before, spam cans are all very well for long term storage (especially if you leave them in their original crates) but they are NOT TACTICAL.
Tool of the Evil Communist Conspiracy to raise the blood pressure, break the knuckles and cut the flesh of Imperialist Yankee Running Dogs.
As I wrote back in 2009:
I hate spam cans. I must have opened hundreds, maybe a thousand, in my life and I hated each and every one of them. They are heavy, bulky, have no ready handle to tote them by, are hard to open in the daylight with a special tool and impossible at night.
Personally, I think it not impossible that the continued sale of ammo by the Russians to American gun owners may be part of a clever plot to maim us and kill us with tetanus. ;-)
If Higginbotham's larger point is that he misses the cheap surplus ammo that we had available to us in 90s, then I certainly share his nostalgia. But I do NOT miss spam cans.
