    I have a couple of barrels for my FTR rifle. Does anyone have an idea where to get a barrel case, or sleeve?

    I like the silicone impregnated gun socks. I also saw a guy who used pvc tubes with some desiccant in them

    I used some left over foam pipe insulation and kept them in a spare guncase. Recently, I bought a box of new LED light bulbs. Each one was packed in a 4’ cardboard tube with a nice cap that I can write on. Now I just need to build a rack for them. Never enough time.......

    Howzabout a piece of 1 1/2" or 2" PVC pipe with a cap glued on one end and just a cap pressed on the other end. You could go high $$$ and get the glue on end that is threaded for a threaded cap. Bulletproof and cheap!

    This is good for shipping barrels, also. No more busted-out box ends with the accompanying road rash. I've been using PVC tubes with caps for a few years to store & separate my TIG filler rods, as well. Works like a champ.

    Roger that. If that box-tube is tough enough to withstand the beating the shipping gorillas inflict on it, it'll be fine in your closet or safe. Best part? You don't have to spend another $0.01. :)

    Kids pool noodles, cut to length, blue paint tape to close and secure ends and mark on barrel/cal. Cheap and secure and very well padded for storage.

    I really don't get the "padded storage" thing. We are talking about steel BBLs, aren't we? If it is NOT chambered, there is NOTHING you could do to the tube under normal circanstances that would hurt it...other than RUST. If it IS chambered, cap the ends and put it back in its shipping box.

    Short of picking it up and beating it against a brick wall, it will be fine.

    Now ..triggers, stocks, ammo, etc...yes. But a steel BBL??

    Just my .02!!
