    Did a search and didn't see anything...

    I'm not a fan of just throwing mags in an ammo can and have too many to just sit on a shelf. How are you all organizing your magazines, either in or out of a safe?

    I know there are a few buy items but im looking for DIY since id spend more than necessary to fit all my mags.

    If you find/come up with a better way to store AK mags let me know. Ive seen the AR mag racks.. While tempting I shoot AKs more so I need one to be a little bit beefier.

    Stop by your local grocery store and pick up some of these handy storage units.

    I store pistol mags in foam lined pistol cases. Keeps them safe, dry and easy to find. Rifle mags in clean ammo boxes w/ desiccant.

    Get a few of those magnetic tool holders from Home Depot or any home improvement store. Work great for most steel magazines. Pmags and aluminum rifle mags not so much. See pic of one of them in inside of one of the safes.

    Is that pic of your safe? If so, have any of your mags become magnetic over time? I have a couple on my work bench, and some screwdrivers that I know were not magnetic became magnetized after being hung on the strips. They weren't super magnetic, but worked great with screws (I'm not complaining about the screwdrivers [emoji1] )

    Milk crates work great also. Heavy duty and stackable.
