    Gerry cans

    Is it Gerry or Jerry? In any event, The Sportsman's Guide - Hunting & Outdoor Gear, Shooting Supplies, Military Surplus, Survival Gear and More! has 2.5 and 5 gallon cans for sale. The 2.5 is 10" long. Forgot what the 5 gallon measures. Pretty good price. Flex house and nozzle extra. Painted Army puke green but that's an easy fix. Some of you back country types might like'em. Check it out.

    Also a 5 liter (1,5 gal.) available. The statement that the 2.5 gal was 10" long was my error. The 10L I saw was referring to 10 liters. DUH!

    Apparently the use of the term "Jerry" began in World War I. Jerry was a British nickname for "chamber pot", and was a reference to the shape of the helmets the Germans wore in WWI. According to some sources the calling of a chamber pot a "jerry" derives from the word jeroboam.

    I use the 5 gallon plastic military cans that use the stainless steel flex spout. I can empty 5 gallons into a tractor or Hummer in less that 45 seconds. i bought them from Jim Henry in Albemarle NC. He is a military truck , HMMWV, tank, generator , any crap dealer.
