    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.

    Thanks guys.

    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.

    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. :)

    Enjoy. :)

    Now, before anyone says a word about the painting quality, lemme just make this perfectly clear...

    I'm no Monet! :neener:

    Pardon the shakey camera in some pictures. A broken finger'll do that to you.

    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.

    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:barf:

    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...

    Your artwork is horrid. And I love it.

    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.
