Wanted to make a pistol case out of an old brief case. Half inch foam on bottom. 1.5 inch inch middle layer with cutouts for 4 pistols. Used the plugs, sliced like bread, to raise guns so tops were just a touch higher than the cutout layer. Another half inch layer on top. Also had room for spare magazines and speed loaders. Perfect!! Great foam, great price, and great service. Thank you Peter!
