    TrophyHunter_Colorado,

    That really looks sick (in a good way):D.
    Keep an eye on it so it doesn't slither down a hole!

    Thanks guys, I think it's fun looking for sure. Woody there is a real good video on you tube that will take you through this. It was really easy for sure, you can use krylon ultra matte spray paint, duracoat, or ceracoat. The key is prepping the items to be painted.

    It took about two hours, took more time prepping gun for paint then it took to paint it. This is duracoat but I have used ceramic type paints as well, I just didn't want to take the time baking it. I have had good luck with Krylon matte paints as well, just have to put matte clear coat to protect it. Here is a pic from today pdog hunting

    These were lots of fun to paint, kinda surprised by the final results.

    Also working on custom fancy wood stocks for each.
