easy to pull the guns out. 2 cans of black plasti dip will make the pick and pack foam stronger

I think the OP's solution (or similar) is a nice solution as you are forced to not fill it with random stuff!
Thank you. It would have perfect if I can fit in my muffs and Oakley's. I will have just to stick those in my back pack to include the ammo and miscellaneous tools.

Are you saying it's easier to pull out the guns when configured vertically?

The law requires a "fully enclosing" and "locked" container.

It is silent on the matter of container quality.

Technically (I would not suggest this!) a paper bag, folded over, with a lock punched through the top, would meet the law's requirements.

Personally, I add a d-ring (by sewing in a looped strap of balistic nylon) to my soft cases, and put a lock through the zipper and the d-ring... but my storage doesn't look nearly as nice as yours does. :-)

Regarding the CZ SP-01, great, great gun. Maybe one of the most accurate handguns I own. I wish I would've gotten the Tactical model (decocker version).

Truth be told, the gun is a bit heavy and it's so good it makes it some what of a bland gun to shoot.

I carefully plucked them with a finger or two, carefully.

Others mark the foam with marker prior to cutting but I just placed the items on top and plucked away a section at a time.

IMO it's better off to have ear/eye pro outside or separate of the pewpew stuff, less need to open things you want to keep secured until its time to open up the case at the bench/safe table/etc

Thanks OP for this Thread. I just got back from picking up the first one. $32.84 out the door + the free Flashlight. The case is on sale so the Coupon does not work....but you still can get the free gift. Thanks Again....

Cool. My advice is to take your time plucking the foam. Do not rush it as I don't think you can buy replacement foam for this. You will have to buy another case as it seems.

The law (PC 16850; https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/f...0.&lawCode=PEN) requires:
Quote:
16850. As used in this part, “locked container” means a secure container that is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, keylock, combination lock, or similar locking device. The term “locked container” does not include the utility or glove compartment of a motor vehicle.
While the term "secure" isn't defined, general dictionary usage doesn't appear to support the "paper bag" theory.

Did they have a lot of cases or were they a hot item? I remember my local HF was selling out of those ammo cans quick when they first came out. Those cases are fairly new, looks sweet!

I'm going to paint (Infectious Disease Test Kit) with neon orange Paint on mine. Or just put a Glock sticker on it, no one should touch it either way.

Go on Amazon and type in "case foam insert" and you get different sizes, types and prices.

The Hot tip on cutting foam for gun cases etc is to use an Electric Carving Knife.

It works really well and it is easy to get right.

Thanks for this thread. I went to my local store in Anaheim and they had plenty. They applied the 20% discount coupon also. So I walked out with the case and my free LED flashlight for under $26.

Just an update. Sprayed a can and a half or so of Plasti Dip to seal the shape/form of the foam. Looks and feels more solid now eliminating the probability of the perforations of the foam to tear over use.

Lucky dog....The coupon has a disclaimer to say not valid on 3day parking lot sale. The sale is a 3day Spring/Parking lot sale.
To anyone trying to get that $6.00 off would not try to hard. Read the fine print on bottom of that 20% off coupon. $29.99 is a normal coupon price so I would not go out of my way today. They will be back on sale again.

Also note...Some cases have ONE large center foam.
Some have two thinner center foam as seen in ducatiti 2nd set of pictures.
You can see the line from top and bottom on foam.
What is better? Up to you.

OP that plasti dip makes for a real nice look.

I chose the two foam blocks instead of the one thicker one. Should give better ability for detail.

Love this idea ! I just got a Case Club 5 gun a few months ago and I find it way better than the individual soft zippered cases. It seems someone forgets a gun at least once a month (yes, exaggeration but really ? how the hell does someone forget a gun at the range) at my shooting range based on e-mails from the range master. The fewer things to take up, the better. I also can look right in the case and see all 5 guns are there before closing it up and that way, it won't be me that forgets a gun.

Had I known about this before I would have gotten 2 of these, one for pistols and one for revolvers and still saved money.
