Re: 17 year olds budget build!!
Good job bud. I know the stresses of being in archery tournaments. When I was a kid, I won the PA state championships 3yrs in a row. That was old school technology compared to what you got. Machined risers were just coming into vogue and extremely expensive. I shot with a Pearson Spoiler (last year and win at states) first generation. My first champ bow was a Martin Lynx (won 2 states with that). I developed target panic in my late teen years. My dad owned a bow shop, so supplies were easy. Now I can't afford much of that stuff. More interested in rifles.
So for your rifle, looks good. Look up on the internet on how to do a trigger adjustment. There are some good info sites that walk you through the process. As for painting... can't screw it up. Get a few different colors of Krylon camo paint and go to town. Here are a few pics of my paint jobs:
