Very cool! Looks like a killin' machine!
Is there a specific type of spray paint that works best?

anything flat should work. What u see in the pic is the krylon brand ultra flat camo. this one turned out so good i did my muzzleloader too. I like the way the rifle turned out more but still not bad. We've all seen some pretty butchered camo attempts.

had a fella pm me about the card board strips and pattern. So here's another pic. Turned out so good i kept the strips for next time. Cardboard is the the tops of a couple shoe boxes. My wife has so many of those around i figured she wouldn't notice and she hasn't.
Just drop the strips in random patterns between paint coats. Measuring device added for size which is random as possible.

Exactly that. First time I've tried it this way, might go for larger patterns next time.

Think it works good on composite stocks right?

I'm goin gto do my .243 because my stock is black composite and starting to fade really bad.

Might do my shotgun if I like how my .243 come out.

Gotta question...

Think the silver barrel and silver scope will look as good with the camo?

Just took apart my .243 last night. Got it down to stock only.

Gotta stop by walley world to pick up some paint today and I'll take some pictures for everyone!

Mine is silver barrel/scope/action etc.. SO... I'm going to do a ghost recon style with more whites, blacks, silvers, greys

Ok... changed the entire scheme. I decided the ghost camo on my .243 might be a little extreme and I didn't wanna waste it. So I decided to do my 870 12ga. Got it all painted and it just needing to be put back together now. I'll take pictures tonight and post them up. Looks pretty good. Might put another coat to get a few more "limbs/leaves" on it.

heck ya the shotgun looks good! I'm a much bigger fan of taking the gun apart instead of just painting the whole thing. Looks like higher quality work.
I would have a hard time painting anything stainless myself but it would be more functional.
