#1 I'll be glad to spot someone the price of a box of bullets....

Just sayin', 's all.

#2 A box? You can get a bucket of ammo and an AK47 knockoff (in the Ukraine probably the real thing, not sure about price) if you know where to go. Bucket is not a figure of speech in this case.

#3 To explain...In the early 1990s many Russians, Ukrainians, and other easterners, flooded local markets in Poland selling all sorts of Russian things, taking their earnings back to their homes. Nothing wrong with that. But it was also a time when border guards could be easily bribed. This meant a lot of interesting items crossed the border, including guns. And yes, ammo came by the bucket.
Nowadays it's a bit different; the easterners need visas to enter Poland, Polish border guards aren't easy to bribe anymore (an EU requirement), and the markets are more organized (and there's certainly less of them).
Acquiring guns is probably much harder as well.
