    Brownells has these tubes, but only in 18" lengths, and I'd like to find something around 32", also only need one or 2, and brownells wants to you buy a bunch.

    Check out your local hobby shop. I am sure any place that sells model trains, airplanes, etc, would have tubes you could use.

    Round plastic tubing doesn't offer much protection for the choke tubes from dents.

    Plastic boxes with the dividers inside (such as fishing lure boxes) provide MUCH more protection against crushing and impacts which would knock a choke tube out of round.

    Just my 2 cents, of course. Buy whatever you like, but if a choke tube gets knocked out of round, it may be ruined.

    I question the wisdom of putting choke tubes end-to-end for transportation. I for one just would not do it. I have a choke tube case that has them in 2 rows, would fit in the pocket of your case just fine. I also have a belt case with a flip top, for ammo, 5 shells in a row that I use. some foam in the bottom, and it works fine, very compact.

    M&M has small containers (after you eat the candy) that house choke tubes nicely and you can use a sharpie to write on them.

    I'd agree with the pill bottles, don't really know how you can get better than that. If you know a pharmacist, he'll probably give them to you.

    Full length tubes, I'd use non-tox vinyl tubing inside of PVC or conduit.
