Here's one more find from my Thanksgiving trip out to west Texas.  Spotted this in a shop and the price was right so it came home with me (with much eye rolling from the wife hahahaha!).  It's a 25 pounds BDU-33 practice bomb.  I am happy that the white nomenclature/data stamp is still somewhat visible on the body despite the rust!

Looks like a modern MK-76 practice bomb. In the Navy we called these MK-76. Blue Death!!
