    Where do you get the foam for the ammo can?

    The ones pictured sadly were lost while crossing the Willamette. True story.

    There is only "Nowhere Near Enough" and "A Good Start." :D

    --DB, who if he had budget would buy mags buy the 100-count case-lot...

    I have used these cases quite a while, seem quite well made for how cheap they are, like $12. For 1911's I just have a box full of mags since they are easy. Now that I have multiple rifles using Glock in 3 different calibers I took to keeping spares in a box. Since they are easy to just pick up the ones I need by caliber when I want to shoot. I also will load the mags I take when I head to the range. Saves standing there at the range bench loading mags. Other odds and ends I did take to putting in bags that are marked as they get easy to mix up and got tired of often trying to figure out which was which. Worst was when I bought a 3d Ruger MK, since all 3 use a different damn mag. Got to the range one day with one of them, and had grabbed a handful of the wrong mags:mad::mad::mad:. I had only the mag in the pistol or I would have been dead in the water there. So for the MK's I took to keeping the pistol and some mags together in one of the cases like this. Now if we want to shoot one we know we have mags for the one we take.

    :) Every time I hear liberals screaming for control on mags I start watching for sales at places like CDNN or Copes and order a few more.

    Um, lemme correct my prior post... there IS such a thing as "Enough," but you don't have it unless your stash looks like this:

    Well ok, I guess if I got to that point I would stop watching for the sales :)

    I have a competition range that I bought years ago; Quite nice and can carry some magazines for my handguns, or I carry 12 gauge buckshot rounds or AR magazines.

    Ziplock 1-qt. (or larger) freezer bags, use a sharpie to mark the bag with the make/model/caliber... water tight, and you can visually see what’s in the bag.

    Thanks guys some great ideas I never thought of. I wound up buying 3 of those already cut foam inserts that go in an ammo can. They seal up good too.
