Where to Buy foam

Rating: 
 Ok first off, sorry I missed a post, I am trying to get a tutorial on the center poles of the tent up, but I need some more picts and some other things that are holding that up, hopefully by friday.

 In other news, I have been looking for foam to make weapons with! As you may know Walmart stopped selling their Ozark Trail brand Blue Camp Pad last fall, and we have been looking for replacements ever since, well I might finally have some answers! Most of them being on line stores, but, if you live near Calgary or Edmonton, I may have another solution.

 Unfortunately, I have had to guess what the shipping is for canada, and from the few rplys to my inquires I have received, I guessed to low.
Also, unless otherwise stated, the prices are amused to be in US dollars.


Edhellen 2lb. Single Layer Foam

 This foam looks promising, though it is a wee bit thin, but not much, I have yet to see it first hand (but will be checking it out soon!). However, the store that caries it can be found in Calgary and Edmonton!
