Where can I get foam padding in Mesa?

I'm working on a gun case and I need foam padding. I tried Ho-Depot and harbor freight, no luck. Do I have to go to a upholstery shop?

And SAS used to carry some - be careful to get the right foam as closed cell won't hold water but Open cell will (think sponge) - When I lived in Oregon I used to spray oil into my gun cases before season openned (ie once a year) to help drive off moisture.

I got mine from Popular, sleeping bag foam and it's worked fine for about a year now for my AR.

It was rather cheep to, a 6-8 foot long, 3-4 feet wide 3" thick section was like $8

Lareda's! I used to live down the street from there. I love that store. Main and Extension.

I went down there to find a holster for my .44 (ruger blackhawk--10.5 inch barrel) and wasn't sure that what they had would fit. Every clerk in the store was very adamant that I bring it in to make sure. Then they all wanted to finger fuck my gun. I love that place, good folks...
