There are more than 150 rounds loose behind the seat of my pickup. My ammo storage container is 4 drawer filing cabinets. 2 for rifle, 2 for handgun, and one for shotshells. Check places that carry USED office equipment, and you can find the good heavy ones with roller bearing drawers. I have been avoiding the MASSIVE increase in ammo price in the past year by using what I got on sale. I know it will not last forever- by the the time I am 99, I need to buy more 8mm Mauser.

If you buy a cabinet and you intend to use 2 drawers for rifle, two for pistol, and one for shot shells, make sure to get on that has 5 drawers. Im just sayin.......... No offence intended c3.

I personally have not used the KCI mags for Glock 19. I tend to stay away from them and stick with the standard Glock 19 mags to ensure that safety. I personnaly stay away from aftermarket mags.

Here is youtube review of the KCI mag and original Glock mag!

Canebrake- thanx for the link on the 8mm. I'm down to a few thousand- the last I bought was .05/rd. Turk, corrosive, loaded hotter'n all get out- but shoots well. Need to spend a day bullet casting for .45s- my reloading stock is getting a little light.
