    Okay, I bought a Storm Case im2100 last week, and when I opened it I was surprised to find that the foam was only cut in one direction, making it impossible to customize. I was planning on using the case to transport 2-3 pistols and magazines. Barely anything will fit in the case because I cannot create the "shelves" the information sheet comes with. To clarify, the foam is not in a cube, but rather a long rectangle. Does anyone have any advice? Are all storm cases like this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have never owned a Storm Case, but if the foam is full length, I would suggest an electric bread saw. That is the unit we use to custom cut the existing foam into order for the placement of the weapon as described.

    Welcome to the Forum by the way....

    The best way to cut the foam is a Hot Wire cutter that you can make or buy. Cuts it like butter. Here is one way to build it:

    You can also search for the smaller ones (handheld) or make you a "table saw" with one. ( that one is the best IMO)

    I agree. Trying to cut it, even with a good sharp blade, is frustrating at best and not so neat compared to a hot wire cutter.
