Anyone done this? Were you ok with the results. Paint?


I've been using camo tape but for the cost I'm thinking it's time to just paint the old girl and be done with it.


But I'm chicken.

I had a buddy use camo dipping to camo his rifle. It works great, easy to do and it seems to be holding up well.

Oh yea! My son and I both camoed our ARs....used paint in coordination with our local color(use a good quality spray paint) and shot over pieces of sagebrush, tumbleweed etc for pattern. Did this with our bolt action varmint rifles as well. Quite happy with the results.

Well, good guys. I like that link too but not the price I'm getting more courage now that others have liked it.

Cool. I have a very limited parts selection for this gun. It's a Remington Woodsmaster.

Ummmm....okay - I'm gonna be the Lone Voice in the Wilderness here.....

I mean - really? Camo a gun? I've hunted all my life, and have tried any number of different things just to see the effect on wildlife. I've sat in ground "blinds" - nothing more than me leaning against a tree - and had everything from deer to squirrels walk by without even a glance - because I sat still. I've worn about every color out there without any notice - until I moved. In full camo, even without a gun, a movement equates to rapid evacuation of my area by just about all wildlife.

So, sorry....for me, camo on a gun ain't gonna happen - but if you like/want it, that's cool. Just don't expect any real "return" on the hunting side of it.

In a word Turkeys.

Motion is numero uno.

However,

I've seen guys spend all morning calling in a big Tom only to have it turn and fly away at full speed before being shot. Every time I've seen this the hunter had not camouflaged his shotgun. Either with tape or paint.

To each his own I like to say.

Hmmm....mebbe ours are dumber.... - but as you say, to each their own. I guess it's just the mental image I always get watching LEO's arrive in a city environment in "cammo" to respond to a call-out.

The biggest reason this old girl needs an overhaul is the bluing is slipping and the clear coat is chipping. Camo it is

Consider yourself lucky if your critters have a low IQ.
