I need a cheaper hobby!

Folks I thought I'd put this out there for some camo pattern suggestions, this is a simple Savage build up, I did thread the barrel and chamber like I wanted so it took a little more effort than a normal Savage build. This is a plain Jane 308 that I built for shooting in some of the Tactical matches when I get my head back on with range estimation and reading the wind again. I have a empty slate here and need some ideas on a camo pattern so anything you can offer for ideas would be great. Later,

Kirk

Nice rig.
I have liked the personal camo paints some of the members have made on their rigs. I mean a camo of your creation, something new, yours. Maybe take some pictures of the places your will be shooting at, and try to reply that. Improvise. Maybe try a couple of times first on pieces of wood, until you like a specific pattern. Good luck with the project. Let us know how it worked.

Re: I need a cheaper hobby!

shootinfool, thanks for the comment! it's realy cool to see something come together that once was just a vision.

HUAINAMACHERO, that is a good idea about the pictures where I will be using it mostly. I have an old Savage stock that I have been spray bombing (rattle can) the last couple of evenings that have turned out ok. I'm doing some research on airbrushes right now since I could have more control of what I'm doing and some research on DuraCoat is in my near future also.

Guys thanks for the ideas and comments. Later,

Kirk

Ok after some rattlecan spray, pine needles, and some of that protective sleeve this is what I came up with, turned out better than I thought it would but I'm always open for suggestions. I need to get a picture of this thing outside but it's been raining and the sun hasn't been out in a week so the pool table will have to work for now. Let me know what you think good or bad. Later,

Kirk
