    Since I can't afford to go shoot anymore, well I thought I would try my hand at painting.

    What do you guys think? First time trying something like this, I used a H&R Pardner Protector as the guinea pig.

    Nice job! I would love to paint my AK. What type of paint did you use?

    Both look good but I thought the first was better. I saw it and said, "That looks like he just dropped it in mud...PERFECT camouflage" My 10/22 might be a good candidate just because.

    Do light coats so you don't get runs. when doing the sponge touch the rifle lightly, be careful to not press to hard or you get splotches. Other than that, just go crazy. And remember if you don't like it, paint over it and try again.
    Prep is key, get all of the oils off of your gun before starting, I use non chlorinated brake cleaner.
