Out Freakin' Standing!!!All it cost me was the can of adhesive spray as I pulled the case out of the trash and the foam from work. What do you think of the finished result? What would you have done differently?
It will work very well for urban camouflage, but be aware that criminals target high end professional grade tools almost as much as guns, so this is still something they'd break a window for. I'm thinking old boring looking hard sided luggage cases might be a good option too and a little less attention getting. I actually knew one guy who used a diaper bag as his range bag for this reason. Complete with fake stains! I bet he could leave it full of a dozen glocks in the middle of the Bronx and it would be there the next day ;-)I really like that the Hilti case looks like it has been through some use from carrying a tool around in it. That adds to the urban camouflage. I think I will make a non gun looking template of my S2K and start shopping at Goodwill!
Best foam to use for custom cases (IMHO) is Kaizen Foam. Rockler.com and Amazon.com both sell it in various sizes, among others who offer it. It is closed cell foam, so it doesn't absorb moisture, oil, Etc.; it is VERY easy to cut and create what you need for carrying firearms. I have used it multiple times and am very happy with the professional result.What kind of foam is that? Insulation foam, craft foam?
Rockler has the following for the Kaizen Foam:That foam looks nice, but it's about $25 on amazon plus $7 shipping. I wonder if this would be wide enough. It's got pick and pull foam inside and it's $20
