    Decided to paint the deuce deuce, Rattle canned it. I think it turned out ok. It was only like a $100 Mossberg 702 so it wasnt a big deal if it didnt turn out. :wiggle:

    Looks kinda rough and it was (gritty spray paint) but I touched it up with some 1000 grit, nice and smooth now.

    Oh yeah .... I had no real reason for doing this, just wanted a cheap project. Maybe I'll have to camo up, hide in the brush, and take out some rabbits/sage rats haha :coolugh:.

    You mean like having the whole thing painted?

    I was thinking about it but it has really really fine threads and I knew they would no longer function if they were painted. :o

    When I was growing up we didn't really have the option of "camo" shotguns or rifles... we used tape :rofl:

    Tape was good to go... it never failed and we never shot so much to "melt" the glue...

    I sanded down my 10/22 stock, cut the barrel band, and pickled it green....The clear coat kinda fucked up, but it turned out really cool.
