Default DIY case foam

I am wondering if anyone knows where to locally source the high density foam that I can cut out to make a custom case layer. I have tried all the obvious places in L.A ( Home Depot, Lowe’s, michaels, Walmart).

I have a hardtigg case 48” x 15” and so the pieces need to be close to that... and did I mention I am cheap?

Foam Mart in Culver City. Ask for Daniel, he's a gun nut enthusiast. First time I went in there I saw a silhouette target in the office full of bullet holes.

Google "Foam Suppliers Los Angeles." Then call or stop by and see what they got.

They will sell you blank foam cut to fit your case. Bought quite a bit over the years and it is true weapon quality foam and the price is reasonable

direct link to blank foam

imo, you want to use kaizen foam (layered).
avoid open cell foams that hold moisture (not good for guns).

this place sells pre-cut foam for several brands of cases
https://kaizeninserts.com/

but you can get uncut kaizen on amazon.
