    So this is sort of gun related. I am needing a 5 gallon jug with a screw cap that can be taken on and off as part of a tumbler. I have checked walmart, several grocery stores, target, Lowes and home depot with no success. only place I have found that I can order it is amazon or other sites but I would rather not pay shipping. I do not need anything designed for potable water neccesarily. Anyone have any idea where would have one of these for less than the amazon shipped price of about 24 bucks? I cannot think of anything but thought I would try the great g.t ubermind. thank you

    I bought a five gallon plastic jub for water from Walmart. It was cheap. I use it for drinking water but it would work for your purpose.

    In the camping section.

    If you are looking for something cylindrical to use on a tumbler, you can get 5 gallon paint pails with lids for under $10, but I think you would only be able to find snap tops instead of screw top lids. Don't know if that would work for what you want to do.

    Interesting, I looked at my nearby walmart not 12 hours ago and nothing that is cylindrical that doesn't have either valves or something else jutting off of it. may need to look again.

    Thank you though

    Now that I have not seen before, where can they be found? Was looking specifically for the water jug with handle so the handle will work partly as an agitator and I will have to do less work to it.
