Introduction: Silent Airsoft Ammo Can

My first Instructable is a "Silent Airsoft Ammo Can" that is the result of my frustration.  I realized the need for a better ammo container during my last war games with my friends when my ammo canister kept rattling and giving away my position.  So I devised a better way to carry my ammo on my belt or in my cargo pants.

Step 1: Emtpy Can

 I started with an old pepper can that was about to meet the trash can.  I liked that it already had the openings for different sized ammo.

Step 2: Cutting and Inserting

I got some free foam from a local shipping office.  The next step was cutting the foam to insert inside by using my recently built hot wire foam cutter.
Carefully wrap the thin foam cutout into the can and then measure the foam for the lid.  Yes, the lid also needs foam to keep the ammo from making so much noise.  Using glue to secure the foam to the lid and you are almost done.

Step 3: Finishing Up

Finally, you can now fill and paint your can and add either a belt clip or just put it in your backpack.  Special thanks to the help from my Grandpa.
