Which colors should I use for my new hunting rifle?

This will be fun. On this site you can play around with Cerakote color combos.

NIC Industries - Virtual Gun Coater

Which 2 or 3 combos do you think I should consider for my new HUNTING RIFLE? Ignore the 2 camo versions, please.

In the "virtual guncoater" you must choose a color for the slide and one for the frame. Mine will be a rifle, of course, so we really mean the barrel and the stock. Since I often re-sell my rifles, suggest combos that will have a broad appeal...nice looking but nothing too wild.
  • Barreled Action Color:
  • Stock Color:

    I'm strangely attracted to Flat Dark Earth (stock) & Coyote Tan (Metal).

    Or

    Nut Brown (Stock) & Armor Black (Metal)

    Len I like Titanium on the metal and either Mil spec green or Flat dark earth on the stock.

    From a partially color blind guy, how would you describe flat dark earth?
