    Now that my Hybrid is in my hands, I'm looking for some storage suggestions. Since it will be used on multiple hosts, I'm looking for ways to keep everything stored, yet easily accessible.

    How are y'all keeping yours?

    Not sure what you mean. Keep it on the gun you'll use it on most, then switch off as you feel the urge? Or just put it on a shelf in your safe to grab when you want to use it?

    Dear God, man! That is madness. I have a $600 Pelican case for each of mine with custom laser-cut foam. I keep them in my vault.

    OK, kidding. I keep mine in their original boxes in the safe.

    ETA: A friend of mine used this place to have custom foam inserts made for a case he already owned. They made spaces for the cans and all the adapters. It's pretty nice.

    My Sparrow stays in the case with the MKII. Whole case is on top shelf of safe. Mystic stays on SBR in safe.
    No special storage.

    I keep mine in gun safe. The centerfire ones are in nomex case. They come in handy to have when using them because they can get really hot to handle.

    The rim fire one is usually on a gun. It is small and doesn't get as hot when using it. I did learn to clean it AFTER every use and do. Then I screw it back on and put the gun in rack.

    In their boxes, in the safe. I also keep copies of the tax form with each one. You need to be able to show the form or a facsimile for each device you have on you if asked.

    I guess what I'm looking for is something to store the pistons, and wrenches, end caps, etc...

    Be nice to have it all contained in one spot.

    I suppose I'll just get one of the clear tackle box containers and go from there.

    My suppressors sit in various places, one of my 9mm suppressors stay on my 9mm sbr, same as one of my 22 suppressors. My 7.62 suppressor stays on one of my sbr's. The rest stay in the little nylon/nomex sheath that they come with. All stored in the safe. All the accessories like pistons, and take down tools are stored in a tiny pelican case (one of the small clear ones) and is just kept on a shelf for easy access when I need it.

    There is a guy on silencertalk that custom makes them.

    That one fits my Sandstorm, and a multimount with a plethora of different mounts and pistons.

    I keep mine mounted on whatever weapon.
    If there is a piston/spring/spacer that is needed for a particular weapon for when I swap, that part is stored in a bag with that weapon.

    I use custom suppressor pouches. I think I found the guy on ARF many years ago.

    Just stack them up in the safe. Some of the various mounts are over in the corner.
