    I just purchased and custom set two Pelican 1750 cases with 3 rifles. Other than the obvious of rifle, magazines, possibly otis cleaning kit...does anyone have suggestions for further customizing the 1750 case? Or interesting things you have custom cut foam for?

    An electric knife with the two side by side reciprocating blades cuts foam like butter. If you like picking the little qubes out it will work, but a nice curve cut really looks nicer.
    A place for hearing protecton and safety glasses, cuz your gonna need them anyway.

    I have a Pelican case that I keep my Remington bolt action rifle in. I cut out the foam to hold 2 boxes of ammo after I took this. (This is before I embarked on my rifle decorating project that didn't work out)

    I'm thinking of getting a different piece of foam and cutting out places for my Remington rifle and my Extar pistol, boxes of ammo for my Remington rifle, the Extar pistol, and the 3 mags for the Extar pistol.

    Cut very slowly. Super sharp knife or razor
