My Bronco is the first car I've had with old style fuses. What is everyone doing as far as keeping spares around etc? Can you pick up a spares kit from the auto parts store with the right variety of sizes? Are people swapping out the fuse panel for one out of a new Bronco and upgrading to more modern fuses that can't be replaced by bullets in pinch?

You can still get the glass tube fuses at most any autoparts store or hardware store. They usually come in a little slide pack with 5 in there of the same amperage.

Yeah, they are still available. Though I usually leave the wrecking yard with a pocket full of fuses, they are free that way....

Glass fuses are still widely available, though cheaper if ordered online. I don't own a vehicle with one but I work with arcade games which still use glass fuses to this day. I have collected many different kinds and amperages including slow blow and fast acting. For arcade games I usually go slow blow, as endless hours of operation tend to be hard on fuses.
