Re: My Custom Paint Job . . .

AAAAAAND with my new scope. My Wife ROCKS . . . the Rifle was my graduation present from BSU, the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x50 is my Christmas Present.

Since the Black Scope doesn't match the SS Barrel, I'm going to paint the scope sometime this spring to match the stock . . . as soon as I'm ready to swap out the 7RUM barrel for the 300RUM barrel that my in-laws bought me for Christmas . . . I'm a LUCKY DUDE!!!!

Thanks Hulk . . . patience is an understatement, but it's all relative. How many hours and hours and hours have you spent loading different combinations and pouring through load books to develop the jackpot round at the end of the rainbow?

Re: My Custom Paint Job . . .

A camo pattern on top of a camo pattern, very sneaky. You have to look through the camo to see the camo. Reminds me of advise a Sniper School instructor gave me while conducting a stalking exercise, "Try to be in a bush, behind a bush, in front of a bush."

And just think, after all that effort it'll probably work almost as well as the "hideous" original paint. I'm just playing.

Re: My Custom Paint Job . . .

Very True Bravo 4 . . . all that work is for naught . . . because I have every intention of waving that shiny SS barrel around in the sun while sneaking up on critters.

:-)

Oh well, I did it for looks, I must admit. I'm of the opinion that camoflauge is only truly necessary for 3 instances . . . shooting Turkeys, Coyotes and Two-leggeds in a Theater of War.

Same for the scope, none of it makes me a better hunter or shooter, but it'l give me the warm fuzzy's.
