i like the way you think deer hunter. now if only i wasn't flat broke.
Painted first charms today
Not much typing. hand is hurt. Pic worth 1000 words.
enjoy! only one side is painted. will do rest tomorrow.
hah that is awesome!!
I will say that my artistic skill is lacking, but I feel it gives it character.
Deer Hunter...pretty neat looking "custom paint job". It DOES give that rifle a whole lot of character.
Looks good! Now I feel the urge for some cereal...
I get the drift, though. I'm no professional painter, and it's a rough job, but I'm having a great time doing it! I'll be finishing it up tonight.
Then sit back and have a green beer.
I can't believe this thread has slipped by me for months....
I can't believe you painted rainbows on a firearms...
It looks...like you made it with love. Your girl should really dig all the time and effort (and creativity) you put into this for her. That's what girls like: thoughtfulness.
So kudos to you!
PS: She's right. Lucky Charms is the best cereal in the world.
Finished the painting tonight. I'll give it two days to dry, then I'll spray on a few layers of polyeurothane. That should make it hold together well.
More pix when the poly-coat dries, OK? ? ?
Certainly makes that a 'one-of-a-kind' 10/22.
She's gettting the rifle tonight!
Finished up the third polycoat today. Put the rifle back together, replaced batteries in the red-dot (I hate leaving those things on!), and took a few pictures.
In my own perfect opinion, this is the coolest rifle in the world. Deal with it.
Now, before anyone says a word about the painting quality, lemme just make this perfectly clear...
I'm no Monet!
Pardon the shakey camera in some pictures. A broken finger'll do that to you.
Very nice, i'd love to have this rifle . You missed a spot near where you feed the mag. but its awesome. How did you break your finger?
Looks like a to sitting next to the handguns and the clear mag. on it but I think It looks Bad A$$ hope she likes it man
Oh, yeah, the mag-catch-finger-thing. I didn't paint it because it was covered in tape. One of those little brain farts. Oh well.
Broke my finger playing football. I've got it splinted with a 7.62 NATO stripper clip and medical tape.
I bet she'll love it.
Gotta be a med tech
Thats a true man right there ... wait he didn't use duct tape :: shakes head in sorrow:: sike thats pretty cool
Thats amazing. I wish there were girls around here that would be delighted to get a gun as a present. good luck to both of you!
True................more like a Picasso, but definitely impressionist.
I think that was a great idea, and I am sure you put a lot of work into it. Unfortunately your artistic skills are much like my own
Why not use some stencils at least?
It means more coming from his own hand.
At any rate, I like it. Now, you just gotta fix that mag. It appears to be empty...
Best thread in 2 months!
Your artwork is horrid. And I love it.
I bet she will too.
This thread is killing me.
stop it or I will die of laughter
If you still need molecular and cell biology books, let me know what the ISBN's are. I have a bunch from the last couple years, maybe something you need.
Looks great man. It is giving me ideas for something for my wife... she would love something like that. maybe not the lucky charms but every woman deep down would love a unique custom rifle
