It's gotten to the point that I am going to have to sell some as I am now totally out of room. The problem is, which ones do I want to part with? I've had to resort to storing some in a small safe that was supposed to be for valuables and valuable papers and such.

Guess I need to prioritize and start listing a few. Dang, I almost hate having to do this. Like with pets; you get attached to them.

When I started having that issue, I thought to myself:

“The money tied up in half of the contents of that safe could be put to way more practical use,” and I sold off a lot of it. As long as I can clearly see the back of the safe, I’m good.

And yes, the money was put to better use. Don’t miss what I sold.

You don't have a dresser with a sock drawer to throw them in????

Yep, don’t sell. Start hiding them around the house....

I was actually going to ask for ideas/pics in another thread (if this is ok, I’ll have here since related or can move to its own thread), but I need storage solutions for ACCESSORIES such as extra mags, holsters, and other general gun “stuff” that doesn’t need a home in the safe. Currently using the son’s old dresser and a plastic vertical drawer system. It looks “out of place” and doesn’t really fit the room. Of course, the price was right because they were items that we were going to sell/donate.

Just thinking maybe a locking 2 door cabinet with movable shelves or something might be more advantageous. Anybody have any thoughts? What are you doing to store items?

Let me help ya out. We can shoot... err... store some of 'em at my house. Along with some ammo for them, but you know how that stuff goes bad and has to be disposed of regularly...
