    While perusing Dave3006s sniper rifle thead, I saw a picture of a really cool camo'd rifle. Well, I went and checked out the manufacturer's page, and they had some other pictures that really intrigued me. So, find the rifle.

    Talk about some cool looking camo. The company will completely coat your gun, optics, rings and base for $300. Quite expensive, but the effect is very striking.

    I found that site a week or so ago. The cool thing is they say the coating is more durable than just about any other finish and that it makes the bolt work smoother.

    Shadow

    Spotted the Shadow.
    If it weren't for the shadow I never would have seen it.

    The shadow and general gun-like shape give it away. Still, not easy to find.

    Found Waldo, the trailer he lives in behind the Chevron Station, but no gun. My eyes must be bad.

    Have to agree with the other's in that the shadow gave it away first. Very cool though.

    Put some sort of cloth or foliage on there to break up the outline, and sit the gun in a shady spot, and I dont think anyone would ever find it.

    The finish looks cool. Didn't anybody see you walking out there and setting it up on the side of the road?

    Yeah but all they seen was him and not the rifle! I missed it. Thought it was the other shadow up/left of where the rifle was...

    Actually, I didn't take the photo. It's from their website.

    If anyone is curious, it's H. D. Rifles

    ha! nice, spinner.

    Amazing coating -- you say the bolt cycles better, too?
    All you can see is the shadow!

    judging by the enviroment i'd say that that pic was taken sometime in a past year or so....

    H-D rifles recently moved from somewhere up north down to Del-rio(?? not sure of the town) Texas, adn that sure a heck looks like texas more so than lke Wisconsin to me. :D


    when and if i ever get well off enough to actually AFFORD it i plan on getting them to build me up a rifle. have heard marvelos things about the work they do (it may just be a "him" not sure)

    Nice camo.

    Only problem is that if you move a few feet over near the green bush you are busted.

    Good Shooting

    They do a couple other camo schemes...I believe there is a woodland along with the desert (which is what I posted).

    Here's a close up of my AR10...


    From a distance it quickly melts away, my purpose for doing it was to simply break up it's outline so it blends in with woodland BDUs and so that if I'm out shooting people won't be able to identify the rifle from a distance by it's outline. Sure, they might figure out I'm armed and shooting by an occasional shot or two but they won't think "Oh, illegal assault weapon" and will be much more likely to assume I'm shooting a harmless bolt action.

    Interesting sidenote on stealth and shadows:
    When one of the new US stealth planes was publicised (F117 I thinks) I read an magazine article that was a chronology of US stealth aircraft efforts since about WW II. One of the things that some (?) researchers found back during WW II was that when people sighted a far-off aircraft, they did so because of its shadow. The researchers tried an experiment and mounted bright lamps on the underside of a test plane, that were aimed so they pointed back up at the underside of the plane. Tests showed that the plane could get approximately six times as close to an observer as the normal plane could before it was sighted. They found that it didn't matter what color the plane was, it was seen because of its shadowed underside--not its actual color. This is the reason today that many modern aircraft use a light underside, even when the top side is painted dark.
    ---------
    -And I suppose, farther back even than that, the reason that black was the traditional color of Ninja clothes was because it cast no shadow upon the wearer--and so did not reveal any depth. What this meant in practical terms was that a person dressed in black could (in some circumstances) arrange themselves into an odd shape, and they were more likely to be dismissed as something harmless if they were sighted. One of the ways was in fact to "form a shadow" of another object.

    -I have some gen 1 Russki stuff around, but no NATO gen 3. I have seen gen 3 but it was a while ago.
    ........?
    But of course now I am wondering, is it possible to "black out" NVD's?
    I know that tube audio amplifiers are very susceptible to RF radiation from flourescent lamps....
    They are not damaged by it, but they suffer a lot of distortion as long as there are flourescent lights on nearby.
    Since a NV tube is by nature a vacuum-tube device and it must have one end exposed wide open, is there any frequency of RF that renders it useless, even if only temporarily? (-I live near a large air force base, so I cannot go experimenting with RF transmitters as I'd like)
