How do you guys store your unloaded magazines? I have them all over the place and need to get organized. Ammo can? Ziplock bags? Sock drawer?

Depends on the setup. I keep most of my pistols in zipper pouches with mag pockets, so each gun can have 4-5 mags stored with it. Same thing for rifles that are kept in cases with pockets.

Spares go into a storage bin, but it can be hard to keep track of them that way. I write the gun type and mag # on them with a sharpie, but that wears off over time.

It takes me all of 10 seconds to throw them all in a box.

It goes in the holster/magazine drawer.

How did I know you would have an entire drawer devoted to mags!!

Box on the top shelf in the safe sounds good, I just need to organize. It took me a few minutes yesterday to locate 6 of them, I freaked out for a second.

I handload so I have a bunch of empty plastic Berry's bullet boxes. These are roughly 3"x3"x5" (don't have one right in front of me), but I can fit 4 Glock mags in each one, with a little room left over. I have one box for each gun where I put mags, little hex wrenches and other small tools/parts. Whenever I take a gun to the range I also take the corresponding plastic box and I know I have all the accessories that I'll need.

mine are everywhere. I leave 3-4 mags for the same gun together. The rest are somewhere here. I just have to look hard

LOL, it's not devoted to mags, it has holsters in it too! :D

My more important magazines which get used the most end up on my mag circle.

Easier to pick em' out of a carrier than to sift through a drawer. :)

I have two bins, one for rifle mags and the other for handgun mags. It's pretty easy to tell which mag goes with which gun, so I have no need for labelling them.

I have most my shooting gear in a foot locker with wheels so I can transport it to the range easier.

We are on the same wavelength. I understand having some mags stored empty if it's long term or buried.

Most of my mags are loaded and shot regularly. I cycle between them. The only thing I do on .223 mags is underload by a round or two.
The pistol mags all stay topped off, ready for fun.

I keep a half a dozen of my rifle mags loaded up (downloaded to 28) and a few of my primary pistol mags loaded as well

Am I the only one who has mags for guns I don't even own, as well as mags that don't get used and spare mags for non-SHTF guns? They've gotta be stored somewhere.

I do keep some loaded for sure. But if I need more than 3 loaded pistol mags in my bedroom I might as well just shoot myself!

As far as the rifle mags go I only have 2 10 rounders that are not slathered in cosmoline. I really need to clean those...

All my mags are loaded except for the one or two for each gun that I usually keep in my range bag. Then the rest of my loaded mags are in ammo cans...that's what they were built for.
