I can't find anyplace to buy other GF grains in my town but I have been able to find large bags of feed corn for cheep. The closest store is Whole foods and it's an hour away.
I don't know much about malted corn, but if you've got some corn you've malted, I'd say give it a try. I think you'll run into the same general problem as with most gluten free grains; that you'll have trouble getting enough enzymes in the mash to convert it.
I'd recommend ordering stuff online, that's how I get 95% of my beer ingredients.
