How do you store your Nerf?

Hoping the gf doesn't realise the storage trunks are getting bigger..
One day, when I actually own a real house, I'll have more space and can execute my mad crazy plans of developing a full rack/wall set up to house my Nerf blasters in all their glory. While I live in an inner city apartment though, space is a bit of a rare commodity and therefore I have to make do with the space I have. 

SO I put it to you fellow Nerfers, how do you store your Nerf arsenal?

Large trunk for the blasters themselves, another for accessories + ammo. 
Given the amount of mix + matching I do with blaster configurations, I tend to seperate my blasters from their attachments for ease of.. mixing and matching:)
An old sunglasses display/transportation case fits the Recon lights nicely
 I also separate ammunition to be all kept in one tub; it's pretty big so it stores attachments as well.
Fits 4 ammo boxes, 4 Raider drums, AT drum, all clips, shields, titan darts, BBB darts, 4 Vulcan chains..
and a partridge in a pear tree.
 Three plastic storage cases on sale for 15 bucks from Bunnings are used to store..more attachments:)
Plastic storage cases to hold attachments..
..and scopes.
How about you?

  1. I'm currently stacking mine - like you, blasters, ammo and accessories separately - on the bottom three shelves of some bookshelves next to my desk. Since I got the stampede, though, I'm running short on space (plus I have books that I want to put on those shelves :P), so I'm going to have to come up with something better soon.

  2. >insert face green with envy<
    That's way overkill for me
    I just use a cardboard box with a small metal container for ammo + clips.
    Mind you, I'll probably need a bigger box when my Raider arrives, and when (hopefully) I get an AT and Stampede.

    P.S. A partridge in a pear tree? Where? (looks around)

  3. I am fortunate enough to own my own home that has a garage. I implemented the blaster rack idea using a peg board I put up. It is now too small so I will need to redesign my lay out and add another board. I have a small gym bag for the accessories and clips which acts nicely when I transport the gear in the back of my truck. I have this great photo of my 4 yr old in the back sporting the Vulcan.
    Your set up is great and has given me a few ideas to incorporate. Thanks.

  7. I use take-away containers for darts. That works alright. But I tend to just throw my guns and accessories into one corner in my room. It drives my mum crazy because she's a bit of a clean-freak haha.

  8. being that I only have 4 guns, they all fit pretty well in a bin I have, there's even room for more.

  9. I'm picking up one of these tomorrow for my nephews:

    http://www.armysurpluswarehouse.com/product/50-cal-ammo-cans-4592.cfm

    They have almost every nerf gun made in the last five years, but are always short on ammo. It will contain a 36 pack of streamlines, a 36 pack of whistle darts, and a flip clip kit (two six round clips + 30 streamlines).
    Then we'll head outside and I'll teach them a lesson Alpha Trooper style.

    I cleared the ammo can with my sister who said "if it gets them to pick up those darts, I don't care what it is".

    (The oldest got his first blasters, a dart tag kit, from me five years ago. When he tore back the paper his three year old younger brother shouted "GUNS!". Greatest gifting moment of my life.)

  11. Marcus7: The main trunk with the "corrugated" plastic is actually from "The Reject Shop" (for those of you outside of Australia it's basically a 2 buck shop) for $60 bucks which I thought was a bargain. It's huge and quite light weight- comes flat packed though and apparently made in Poland (?!)

    The other tubs are just from Bunnings:)

  16. I've got two shelves in my closet. One for N-Strike gear one for Dart-Tag/Vortex gear.

  17. I have a whole garage devoted to my Nerf collection. 3 main bins, seperating primaries from secondaries. The last bin is multi-tiered for accesories, such as scopes, lights, bipods, and so on. I'm thinking of adding a pegboard so I can store all of them vertically, which would increase space 10 fold.

    Pocket, are you ever thinking of going a little more expansive with your space...say, a warehouse...because when I buy my parents property back here in the States, I'm going to turn a big portion of our yard into a warehouse...and it's going to be devoted to Nerfers.....and just Nerfers.

  18. My blasters are all over my bedroom on display. Literally! I gotta do something different with them like have a big box for ammo and clips and something else for the blasters them selves. I love what you did with the briefcases for your attachments and stuff. Know where I could find one for an Alpha-Trooper?
