Hot wire cutting makes for great results as presented here, but it sure is a lot of hassle.

Go to Bed Bath and Beyond with your 20% off coupon you got in the mail and buy an electric carving knife. You know, the one with two reciprocating blades. Lay your gun on the foam, trace it with a sharpie, and carefully make your cuts. Think like you are using a jigsaw in wood and sacrifice the foam being cut out so you are always ending a cut into the sharp corners. Total time for a simple cutout is about ten minutes.

I keep my e-knife in my toolbox at the shop and offer to let any customer buying a pelican style case to use it. It even works well with the pick and pluck foam.
