The best $1.76 I ever spent....

Found these nifty little things at one of my local neighborhood M&P stores. Couldn't resist, so I bought the last six of them that they had, at a buck seventy six a pop. They have a lot of places inside for mags, ammo, extra cylinders, sights, owner's manual, rags, a mini tool kit or anything else you can think of. I love organization, so these work well for my particular situation. The store owner is gonna see if she can order more of them, despite the fact that I told her that my web searches for the wholesalers showed that they're all out of stock, and the only ones I found elsewhere from private sellers were about $9.00 each. But if she can come through and get some more of these, I'll letcha all know. That is, if any of ya care....:D

Look like it works for you. I wouldn't have thought of that application for what looks like toiletries bags, but now that I've seen it, I agree they're well suited.

It'll be interesting to see how well they hold up over time.

Why is the world would you want to mess up the bag with egg-crate foam?

Great repurposing of a bag.

Frugal re-purposing is awesome. Well done!

Looks good Mariachi. I also love organization and this looks like a neat idea. "Norelco" on the tag, did they come with an electric razor?:)

Trust me, these bags are built muuuuuuch better than the last Norelco razor I had.....:rolleyes:

That is pretty clever.

Good thinking, I bet that would be nifty for a range day. I even like the egg crate foam idea as everything could have it's own place if ya want to cut out pistol/mag slots and afford more protection for the guns and mags. Padding protects things, I couldn't see how it would hurt.

Fwiw, I'm mostly gonna just use them for hanging them up in the safe by their hooks, then on shooting days, I can just stuff 3 or 4 or 5 of them inside some of my Pelican cases (unloaded and sans ammo of course), drive to the range, open the lid and grab the ones I wanna play with that day. Gun will be in the center pouch, mags on the right, little parts on the left and any specialized tools they need somewhere else inside. Basically one Pelican with five guns, one Pelican with ammo, eyes & ears. Short, simple and sweet.....:D

I would be a little worried about moisture and rust, A can of silicone would help that.

I have a bag like that for my razor! That's a great idea for those, I can see it being great for hanging in a safe. Not so sure if I would use them to travel with your firearms....at least without the egg crate to keep them from scuffing. Still love that idea.
