    Just wanted to share some of the camo painting and decals I've done on my guns.

    I painted my Savage 30-06 & Benelli 12ga shotgun about 2 years ago. As you can see there is a little wear and tear on the camo but still holding up. I plan this spring to wipe them down and give them a new coat of paint. This time I'm going to try painting them in a Fire Camo. I'll post new pics when they are done.

    My third rifle is a Savage .17HMR Varmint. I found a cool website called "CAMOCLAD". They have all kinds of camo finishes to choose from. I picked the Realtree Hardwoods Grey HD. It comes pre-cut for your shotgun/rifle. Very easy application, it took about an hour to finish my rifle and scope.

    Hope this gives some inspiration for those of you that might be a little nervous about painting there guns.

    Good Luck!

    Nice work. What are you using to paint them with? Totally by hand?

    Used the "Hunters Specialties Camo Spray Paint" and some pics that I found on the net of different types of leaves. Printed them out and used them as a stencil.

    I just use real leaves and small twigs for stencils, works for me.

    Yes, the bottom 2 pics are the "CAMOCLAD" decals.

    Does any one else have any self-camo paint jobs that they would like to share?
