Stock Art


April 12, 2003, 06:53 PM
I've seen a couple of thread take tangents into stock art. ie BlingBling became "flaming stocks" and Highpower Positions became "Capitalist Oppressor sticker".

Since there seems to be interest. How about posting your "Stock Art" on this thread. Creative bunch of folk like ya'll must have some good ones.

I love that sticker, man. I have since I first saw it. Oh well, can't have more than one of us with that sticker.

Here's the other side of that rifle stock. My other lower just has a bunch of surfboard company stickers on it. Hmmm...Blingman, could I get a cool surfboard sticker from your neck of the woods? Something about 3" round or 2.5x4"? Just let me know the costs.

This is perhaps the most underappreciated thread on THR at this moment, in my opinion.

While not really art, here is what I have on my FAL

April 14, 2003, 01:12 AM
No Pics,
I have in clay games used a "missed yet?" sticker.

Then there was the time I taped a pic of a cutie in a bikini on my stock...psych works, a couple of the squad lost concentration.:)
Including my partner...he he , I ran 'em

April 14, 2003, 06:01 AM
...another one off my friend's stock. He's left handed so use your imagination what kind of faces he makes while shooting.

...and one more off a USMC Team Gun.

BTW, guys, I envisioned my next rifle paint scheme. You all know about the pearlized flame candy apple design for one gun. The other that I want is...

Wait for it.....

Tie-dye. What do you guys think..a tie-dye AR for match use?

Here's my friend John Scandale with an appropro Mighty Mouse sticker - we're all rodents at heart.

Steevie...there you go again calling me the "C" word!

How many more points you need for the badge?

Steve Smith
April 16, 2003, 10:31 AM
Dang it...I realized I'd used the C word sometime this morning on the way to work...tried to get to it before you saw it!

Ummm...30. I think I'll get a good deal of them this year.

April 18, 2003, 12:14 AM
Not if I learn to shoot prone.......:neener:

SRM and Steve Smith,
Ya'll play nice now...

I'll make life easy for you. Just refer to me as "Master and Knower of All Things Boom-Boom" from now on.

Here's another one since no one else seems to have an aesthetic eye.

BlingDork, your ego has outgrown your head.

...too bad I can back it up too isn't it?...

Steve Smith
April 18, 2003, 07:15 PM
I guess so! ;) BTW, I DO hope you saw the smiley at the bottom of that last post!

April 20, 2003, 11:28 PM
Steve, are you shooting the standing and reduced course championships?


Steve Smith
April 21, 2003, 12:01 AM

dang you guys play nice now.

blind rat is that rust on your m1a, drop and give us 50 pushups!

srm the altitude must be getting to you, lol

steve the only way srm and I are going to let you get any points is if you carry our equipment to the line for us. second thought maybe after saying that I should carry my own stuff.

srm are go to come down and play with us flat landers out at crc on sat. ?
we also have that match on the 3rd at boulder and a choice on the 4th between crc clinic match and buffalo creek 600 any/any.

I think steve is going to the crc clinic match and I will be playing at buffalo creek on the 4th.

I think I found out why my scores have been off the last few months, got me a new set of seeing eye glasses today so I plan on giving you two a run for your money next month or so!:D

April 21, 2003, 10:47 PM

I gotta work the next couple of weekends :mad:

But I plan on making a weekend of it on the 17th/18th
IF I can find some Viht N135 (I'll use RL 15 if I can't) and IF I can dust off the reloading bench.

See ya on the line

If you think your gonna get any points this year, I'll have to show you some of those advanced psychological techniques they taught us at the USOTC.....course, that was the reason I stopped shooting for 20 yrs too!

Okay Steevie,
Here's something for you to drool over...

and another view;

p.s. jc121, not my rifles, and I think it's red dirt not rust. I had to send my Upper in for work once. John Holliger scolded me "Stainless barrels aren't supposed to rust". I had to explain to him that one of our ranges is red dirt that looks alot like rust. I guess I should have removed the float tube and cleaned off that dirt.

Sven, that alien one is :cool:

Game over man, game over! :cool:

December 24, 2003, 11:11 PM
the alien one is very cool.

actually all of those are cool. the copperhead 'skin' and lightening ones are pretty slick too.

December 30, 2003, 12:30 AM
Those airbrushed stocks definitely have the psychological intimidation factor going for them.

December 31, 2003, 02:11 PM


Too funny. :D

January 20, 2004, 11:10 PM
Has anyone been able to get in touch with the artist that did the M14s above?
