What do you folks find works well as a way to organize and store parts and accessories for your guns? If you're like me, you've probably accumulated a proliferation of items of various odd sizes and shapes for your rifles, shotguns and pistols: bayonets, ammo pouches, mags, clips, scope rings, tools, manuals, and all manner of accessory gadgets and widgets. Let's face it, we're basically living in satellite branches of our go-to shootin' shops. Many items tend to go with a particular gun, so it would be handy to keep such gun-specific items together. For a gun sold in a case--pistols being Exhibit A--often there's little extra room for much in the way of add-ons. Unless subject to regulatory requirements, these items don't need to take up space in a safe. You might not share my affliction with OCD (we all have our crosses to bear, it's just that mine is stored in its own cozy). What do you find works well for keeping things organized so you can put your hands on what you're looking for? Have you built shelves? Cabinets? Bought 'em at Home Depot or online? Do you buy cardboard boxes or plastic containers of certain types and sizes? Do you label things? Descriptions and tips are welcome; photos are helpful, too.
