    Default Opinions/ Help needed Parctice Bomb, Spam Can

    Here is a pic of a sealed spam can of .45 ammo, it's missing the key, but not dented at all, I have tried to research if the T2AAF has anything to do with the USAAF, anyone have any info? I have seen one opened, and it is steel cased ammo. Also a pic of a 100lb WWII parctice bomb? that I "borrowed" from Universal Studios in LA when a teenager, when security was not tight, and it was not the tourist attraction it is today. Glad the LAPD did not see me going back to my VW bug with it over my shoulder. It was in a prop storage building with other WWII props. It's been well over 35 years since I procured it, so the statute of limitations should be over. Do any members know if it is an actual Military practice bomb, that was filled with sand, or other material for weight? It has 2 sturdy eyelets on the back you cannot see in pic, and is very well made, and thick sheet metal. I see no markings on it. It has obviously been repainted for prop use, but have always wondered about it, and fairly new to ordnance collecting. I am a gun collector. Judging from the time I "got" it, it may have been used in shows like McHales Navy, Rat Patrol or others that I forget the names of, from the late 60's early 70's Steve
