    Looking for ideas on tube set storage. I bought a set of Briley 20 ga tubes and the plastic storage bag is shot. I know they make guncases with storage for tube sets but I don't have the money for that. I was looking for what is available on the market or did you make your own. Thanks Phil

    I've seen PVC pipe used, and you can put the foam tube insulation in-side the pipe for padding...Grubby

    The hard plastic "clamshell" arrow cases that Cabelas sells are great for storing/transporting your tubes. They already have the foam arrow holders
    installed, so you can pop the tubes in the slots and they won't rattle around.

    Inexpensive, great protection and room for more tubes if you get some!

    Of course, you'll have to put your gun in it's own case!

    Just something for you to think about!

    Go to the post office and buy a $3.00 mailing tube. They are rugged and have a removable end cap. Cheap way to protect them.

    Ameicase sells an extruded Plastic tube holder made to length and can be had in 4 or 6 compartment. They will make an 8 compartment on request.

    RubberMaid - they might have a neat suitable container. Or 2 - 2-1/2" PVC pipe to length and glue a cap on one end and a screw-on cap end on the other. That's how I store my cleaning rods.

    You may have to sand out the inside dia of the pipe slightly.
