    So, how do you folks store your grips? I'm accumulating more than a couple of sets, and need some suggestions.
    Thanks,

    I wrap in a paper towel around each slab and put in a baggie and seal then place in the safe as a set. This helps hopefully to keep from turning yellow too soon.

    I wrap them in a paper towel ( to prevent scratches. ) with a rubber band around them. Then I put them in a zip lock quart sized freezer bag ...label the bag with a permanent marker ( 5" Wilson 9mm, S&W N frame, etc ).....put them in an 8 gallon storage tub with lid / put the storage box on a shelf in my reloading components closet in my shop/ reloading room. You can see them in boxes with blue lids to the left...

    Check out Southern Star Display Cases. Several size and wood options, made in the USA. I have 3 and like them very much.

    My good ones are in little bubble wrap bags to protect against damage, the more indestructible ones are in baggies. They're all packed a tin box in the safe.

    I store them in their original packaging, whether it's a little plastic pouch from VZ or a box from Esmeralda or whatever, on a shelf above my gun cleaning table.

    The original grips from my pistols are stored in the original boxes the guns were purchased with or the boxes from Esmeralda.
