    I only have 2-3 mags for most of my pistols. So they are always with the gun they fit.
    ...same goes for my rifles

    I do the same thing. I only have 1 handgun in each caliber so no way to mix them up.

    With my current favorite, S&W M&P's, all the mags look alike. The 9 & 40's will slip right in the wrong gun. .45's are a bit larger but look alike.

    My Grandson grabbed a 9MM mag off the tailgate one day and slipped it into my .40. When he fired it sounded like a very light load but the bullet travelled a number of feet and the case, forward half, fire formed to .40 diameter. Given the fact we have a large number of each ID marks are well worth the effort.

    And Todd, we only use a little bit of glitter but never with mauve polish.

    The problem I have is the guns and mags are in the mid size gun vault and there isn't a lot of real estate inside.

    The magazine storage was driving me crazy and I came up with the idea on day while at Lowes. Saw the tray, got my Brother label makers and there it is.

    I only took pictures of 1/2 of the magazines in this safe, for illustration purposes. Thanks for the kind words.
