|Where there's smoke, |
How do you store all the magazines for your pistols?
|The cake is a lie!|
I stuff them in Glock clamshell cases.
They hold quite a bit and even more when the foam is removed.
I have various sizes of plastic ammo cans. I use a file label and marker to indicate what's inside. Of course, I have quite a few magazines. The Beretta and 226 mags each fill a 50 cal can.
short term? long term? for use soon or just against potential tyranny? grab and go or hidden/buried.
around the house I just put them in large plastic tubs that probably hold 500 magazines. For range use I put them in soft bags normally used for tools. For long term I put them in VCI bags.
What is your goal?
“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”
off duty / EDC guns; there's a handful of loaded G-17 mags laying around the house & car.
Work; G-21 mags on my belt, 2 more in the work bag.
The rest of the Glock mags are in a box.
Everything else- 2 ziplock bags with 1911 mags, A few ziplock bags with P-226, then P-220, then S&W, ect, ect, all mags are lightly oiled, and there's a desiccant pack in the bag. Bags are in a Tupperware container.

I have 25-30 of those Midway soft cases with 7 mag slots for mags. The rest of my mags go into sealed ammo cans.
I use these. Each drawer holds 9 P226 mags and is just slightly wider than a 226 mag laid crossways. And they're stackable. Really only good for pistol mags.
I keep a 50 cal ammo box on top of the safe with “loaded mags” sticker on it. Any extra or other mags go in a box in the bottom of a rolling carts right next to the safe

Whatever cardboard boxes I have.
|Prepared for the Worst, Providing the Best|
Magnetic tool holder strips screwed to the wall above my safe. The $4 ones from harbor freight. The magnets are strong enough to hold even loaded mags, and I can get about 15-20 mags on a strip (more if they're single-stack). It works even better now that I got rid of the Glock and all of its plastic mags that wouldn't stick.

Depends how many magazines you have.
Before I sold off my collection, I made this fancy magazine holder

I bought a scratch and dent Craftsman multi drawer tool box cheap and use it for magazine storage. Works great!

^ I do something similar to this for extra mags and tools/parts/misc in the room I use to work on guns. Old 6 drawer tool cart.
Most mags are stored either with the gun in the safe under the rack (for those few that have only 2 or 3) or in 50 cal ammo cans. I have a couple cans each for beretta, glock and p226.
A Perpetual Disappointment...
I’ve found that the Sterilite mini drawer units work best for me. I’ve got a bunch in my office closet and for the overflow I’ve got the larger drawer units in the garage.
We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
A tool chest was my go-to, but now that standard capacity mags are no longer available for purchase in this evil state I'm contemplating buying a dedicated safe for them. Damn commie leftists...

Handiest damn things ever made.
I like the Sterlite Tupperware cause they are thin and stack well. But not too thin for accessories.

1. P-Touch labels on baseplate - gun, capacity, mag# (P320-15 #1, G19x-19 #2, Glock-17 #3) etc.
2. Arranged in two- or three-sleeve elastic mag holders stored base up in a large, plastic, locking tool box.
3. Rifle mags are numbered with a paint pen and stored in a plastic tub.
I've been tinkering with 3D printing "racks" for them -- most, I set up to hold four or five magazines. I set mine up such that they can be mounted to the bottom of a drawer, or even on a vertical surface. The design is evolving....
Email me if you'd like to try one.
God bless America.
