    But do you guys keep all of your extra magazines loaded or not?

    I also keep mine in ammo cans. I usually keep a few mags loaded, but I also keep a lot empty until I go shooting.

    Most of my mags are empty. My ammo is mostly in cans too
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    My ammo is in ammo cans as well. I keep one or two extra loaded magazines for each of my pistols, a shotgun with loaded magazine, and the AR-15 with 20rd loaded magazine. All the rest of my spare mags for everything are empty. I do rotate my spares and empties every once in a while, or when I shoot them up.

    I keep the clips loaded in my primary defense gun. The ammo is stored in a gun safe in an air conditioned house.

    Yep, Army surplus 50 cal ammo cans for me too. Easy way to segregate your ammo by caliber.

    Look up your local Army surplus in the yellow pages or online. Once in a great while I find some quality ones at my local gun shop or gun shows. Sometimes pawn shop have these as well.

    Ammo cans also.
    South Florida can get kinda humid, so I throw a few bag of silica gel before I close the box and put a label on it so I don't have to open when I don't remember what's in it

    Where do you get the cans in south FL? Also, this may sound dumb, but where do you buy silica gel? I've never actually seen that stuff in any store.

    Ammo cans here too (I need a few more). The only mags I keep loaded are the carry mags for each gun. The shotguns are fully loaded and have full butt cuffs on the stocks, the HD .45 is loaded and two full mags nearby with the Surefire.

    Ammo cans too, couple full mags for CCW, Loaded 12gauge w/ side saddle full, 1 -30rounder for AK or AR. The rest of my mags go in 50cal. cans or tupperware bins. Everytime I get something shipped w/ silica, I throw the silica in w/ mags or ammo.
