Just wondering if anyone knows of a good gun case, not really looking for a bag. Maybe some tips on making one? like cutting some foam?

"when some one asks hey you sure you wanna use that pump, i got an ion in the car you can borrow so it's more fair for you, and you respond saying no it's okay i have a dm8 in my trunk but i feel like dominating this game so i'll use this instead."

Check local second hand stores for laptop cases. Also check, if you have one, local gun ranges, sometimes they are selling used items like these cases.

I bought a handgun case from Wal*Mart about a decade ago. It's huge, my Spyder RS, 3 barrels on the foam, plus squeegies under the foam. Not sure if the one you found on Amazon will work. Looks like one I was checking out at Dick's, only a single side arm case. Most likely too small. Take your marker to the local sporting good store to test fit.

While those are both great, they are nearly 2ftx2ft as my dad has a pair of them for some of his pistols last I checked. They work, but they're large as fuck especially considering that your barrel isn't longer than 12" (or at least last I checked stock was 12" on a phantom)

I don't like those cases just because they are a pain to put in my gear bag. A gatwrap or pe bag is better imo.

Just saw that Paintball-online has the CORE paintball gun case on sale for $5.99 USD right now.
Couldn't find definitive answers for dimensions on it.

CORE Paintball Marker case at Paintball-online.

Another really good option, that would make it more your own would be to search around for an old suitcase (hardshell preferably) at goodwill, salvation army, or even you attic/basement. Then you can get old camping roll up mats, or even better, get 2 inch thick foam from somewhere, the stuff often put on top of beds that are too hard. You could check your local dump, they might have a foam pile, make sure you clean it with a gallon of Lysol and stuff, but it isn't like your sleeping on it so it isn't really gross. You can then you cardboard to make templates and cut out the foam, adding inserts where you gun isn't the same thickness and what not. Then you would want to use duct tape to wrap from the bottom of the hole to the top to keep the gun from scratching and ripping out the foam. Next you would use the same template as before and cut a thin piece of foam to line the bottom of your case and whatever thickness you would need for the top to keep anything from moving.

This really can be done with any size suitcase depending on how much storage space you want. You could even use a thin piece of plywood to close off the top section for more storage.
