    I have two to do, hope they turn out as well as yours.

    Nice job, just be careful if you set it down in the woods, you may not be able to find it again.

    I'm starting to get concerned with how much you care what Jon likes or dislikes.

    Good paint job though!

    I thought you were a farmer?

    But, very nice.................. I have to get a life and start actually working on them again, instead of owing them.............. envy.

    What kind of paint did you use? I was thinking of painting a couple of my guns, but am afraid of screwing something up.

    I have seen kits at Wal-Mart for painting guns usually in late summer or fall.

    I just used spray paint and followed the instructions here:

    Painting Rifles - How To

    I think it turned out OK but it could be better. Next time I will put more detail into my patterns.

    A few more (and better) pics of the finished product.

    I think it will do. Not bad for my first try.

    Like I said, I wish I'd have made the cut outs more detailed. ^^^^^ this photo shows what I'm talking about

    It's not supposed to be pretty, it's supposed to be hard to see in the woods and I think I've accomplished that.
