Here is a picture from a magician I found. http://img202.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img01320rf.jpg

Anyone ever see this anywhere or know where I can buy it? Thanks so much

Staples, Office Depot, Look at office supply stores. Actually that looks exactly like my gun case that I keep 2 9MM Handguns in. Go to a sporting goods store or a store that sell guns. This is where you will find your case. And if you live near a Wal-mart they have this case in the sporting goods department. I have the exact same one and I bought it from Wal-mart for $ 30.00

I bought what was called a "Tool Box" at a local hardware store, like a Home Depot. Basically, it has the interior of a gun case with customizable foam inserts, and a nice inner holder for like pens, and such. What's nice is the foam inserts are just the right size of a standard deck of cards. It was like the case was made for the cards. If you'd like, I can post pictures of what I have so far, but go and look at Home Depot for something like your case.

Happy Hunting!

They hit the nail on the head for you, Evan.

Also, you can usually buy blocks of foam and custom cut (with an X-ACTO knife) your own insert spots. Smile

Office depot has all kinds of shapes and sizes. The outside is black and they have a security lock on the outside price range between 20-30 dollars. Very nice products

It does look like Home Depot's Technicians tool box. I have one and it's a great case for $20.
It could also be a photographer's case used for high end camera equipment.

I got one that looks like that at Home Depot. I think Lowe's has them too, and maybe Harbor Freight Company also.

There are different "grades" of these, some with stronger hinges and better latches. If you go to Ritz Photo, you can find a really nice one, but it costs more than the ones from Lowe's or Home Depot. The surface has a better backing on it, though. It resists denting a bit better than the cheap ones.

I have a silver one from Lowe's as well, but I don't think they sell them anymore - at least I haven't seen them for over a year...........

I bought a silver one from Lowe's a few weeks ago. Holds all my stuff quite nicely. It cost $19.99...

I bought a similar case from Home Depot. I then cut a piece of plywood and covered it with some batting and headliner material. Then I attached a 5/8 flange to the plywood and screwed that onto a heavy duty tripod mic stand.

So for a total of about $70.00 , I now have a performing table and case that can go anywhere and look professional too.

The problem is the tool boxes at those hareware stores do not have a combination lock as shown. Check out these:

That's not a problem. Some of those combination locks are very unreliable. Besides, what good do they do? If someone wants your stuff, he will just take the whole case.

At my local Home Depot (Tampa) they have those cases in a few colors as well..Black, Red and Silver...19.97 but no combo lock(s)...I believe the case pictured is a "Haleburtin" not sure about the spelling..Sold mostly at photography shops...Check at B&H Photo online....

Even Walmart or target......i have seen these types of cases all over the place now-a-days, and in lots of different sizes. Just look around the different departments...toys, electronics, crafts....good to go
