I have been using a fairly large, somewhat flat tupperware container to store my handgun mags. It fit perfect in my range dufflebag.

However, with the purchase of my new XD45, I've surpassed the limit of what I can store in it. I'd like to find a way to keep all my mags in my range bag - as it would make things easier in a situation where I would have to grab things quickly and go.

How do U guys store your mags? My safe is full between guns and ammo. I'd rather not try to rig up a storage that way. I want something portable.

Currently, I use the plastic cases my handguns came in to store extra mags, barrels, springs, guide rods, screws, grips, etc.

I usually take two or three handguns to the range each trip. Before a range trip, I just grab the cases of the guns that are going along. I take out mags and anything else I might want, toss them in the range bag, grab some ammo, a cleaning kit, and the tool box... and away we go!

I have been thinking of getting one of those plastic bin storage rack setups that several stores have now. Then I could just walk over to the rack and slide out the drawers for the appropriate guns.

Something like these... I just haven't decided which ones...

I would like to find some with lids that hinge open, so it keeps dust out.

Or something like this... but heck, they are so expensive.

If I can't find a solution to something that I can carry (and keep them ALL in there) - I may have to do that.

I'll probably go cheapy and just get one of these and stack the gun cases on it.

Keeping the mags and stuff in the original gun cases is not a bad idea really. Right now the cases are just stacked in the corner. I really need to get them up on a shelf.

I have that kind of shelf in my garage.

I use 1-2 or my padded gun cases to carry my pistols to the range. Usually the Walther and the HK cases. The rest are stacked on a closet shelf.

I bought a plastic chest of drawers at The Container Store for $50 - it holds all my pistol mags with room to spare.

I store my rifle mags in the tactical carry cases for the rifles.

I bought a larger rubermaid container with a handle today - it will still fit in my bag - it's just taller.
