pretty sure this is the wrong forum, but alas I couldnt find anythingmore suitable, and this one seems to have high traffic. I will be getting my rifle licence soon (YAY. I live in canada, we need a licence...) and I am planning on painting my gun, as most of the hunting i will be doing will be in the snow, and black isnt the best colour in the snow. so when painting, where do i not want to paint? and how should I do it? can I paint the barrel? etc etc.
Thanks, Evan

Re: painting

Don't paint any moveing parts or inside of the action, or muzzle crown. Personally I would use a good homemade pull over sock or snow camo tape, that way you can change your colors and wont end up looking like an icecream cone in the summer time.

Re: painting

Check out McNett Camo Form. It's a self clinging wrap and it comes in a snow camo. I use it to wrap some of my hunting stuff and it works great. Be sure to check around on prices, there's a big difference from place to place.
