Looking LOCALLY for gun case foam.  Anybody know of any stores or types of stores that carry the full foam pieces needed to cut out for gun cases?

Jo Ann Fabric type places sometimes carry the 2.0 pcf polyethylene foam in white.   (that's the stiffer, closed cell stuff)   This will probably be in 1" or 2" thick layers.  You can bond multiple layers together using 3M #77 spray adhesive, available at Home Depot


If you want the softer foam, ask for a 2.0 pcf polyurethane ester, probably grey or black.


If it's 2.2 pcf, that fine - but you dont' want the 4.0 pcf or 11 pcf!!



Look for local packaging companies - the type that wholesale boxes to manufacturers - they are usually foam fabricators, and might sell ya some.

Just bought some the other day at JoAnn's.  If you can find a 40% off coupon from the newspaper, you'll get out of there much happier.



In the white or grey?  I can only find the white stuff and have never seen anyone use it in their cases.  I would prefer gray if I knew where to get it.

I will look in the yellow pages for packing places but I will also look into this Joann fabrics.
