Still researching... I am thinking cutting for the telescope optical tube which is about 17" long by about 9-10" in diameter is where it will be tricky, to get a long and deep, curved cut out of a block of foam may be tricky...
I also will need to research some quality, but not too expensive cases... they will all need to be shock absorbent themselves with lockable features... I would prefer not to have to use pad locks, especially for the handgun... that case in particular must be a good lockable case... I may also check out finger print locking for that but I'm pretty sure that will be too pricey. Will probably have to go with some type of standard spinning numerical locks as seen on briefcases.
