Well, here’s part 2 of the series where I went ahead and camo’ed my plane jane shot gun. I’ll let this one cure in the sun for the next week (weather permitting) and put it to a field test in terms of ability to blend with surroundings and durability. If you haven’t read my first post on camouflaging your gear, read it here.
Also, I need to provide a couple more details on spray painting. With a black rifle, always start out with your lightest color paint, and then move progressively darker. You’ll see in these photographs, I did a majority of the weapon beige, followed by olive drab, then dark brown. Obviously if you start out with a dark color on black, you won’t see much of an affect. You essentially need to give your weapon a primer with your first color.
P.S. – if you need help putting together a Billy Beats for your kid, see background.
