I wasted some money on some tacticool foam

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Felt like buying something useless to combat the COVID craziness. Probably doesn't do any better of a job than the hand cut foam I was using before, but it sure looks cool.

It must take a steady hand and a sharp razor to cut that foam to fit.

I paid a professional outfit to do it. The foam I had before was hand cut with a hot wire foam cutter, and it was perfectly serviceable, but it didn't look like movie assassin kit the way this does.

I tried cutting the foam once and said the heck with it.  I’m just too lazy to be tacticool.

DD: Did you have to outline the items first before you took it to the professional cutters?

Yeah.  If I had done that it would have looked like it was for a different rifle.......

Nice attention to detail.  Most movie assassins would have forgotten to include the Gerber Multitool and the batteries. :anim_rofl2:

Personally I'd F it up by trying to add a space for something I forgot.......

The folks I used (https://mycasebuilder.com/customfoam) have a library of shapes for common guns / mags / etc as well a tool to outline your items (by taking a photo) for stuff they don't have in their shapes library already. I used the library shapes for the AR and 1911 mags, but custom traced everything else. Works pretty well.

Thank you. I never knew there was such a thing as this.

This is as tacticool as it gets for me. 

It's automagically 10x more tacticool if it's bullpup

Has anyone ever done a study on how heavy El Mariachi's guitar case must have been?  Bastard must have weighed a ton.....

Nice, but does the blue masking tape add or subtract Tacti-Cool Points?  I don't have my chart in front of me.....

Blue masking tape is artistic accentuation.
