View Full Version : Camo a shotgun?

01-25-2007, 10:31 AM
I am refinishing my 870. I'm using gunkote and purchased the "stainless" color. I'm now considering camo-ing the weapon. 1. Should I? 2. How should I?:confused:

Something that you can consider so as to not permanently camo the fine finnish of your weapon, is to consider something that you fit over the gun if you feel it necessary.
We used camo tape in the UK military. There are other options.
It wouldn't bother me to paint a weapon intended for self defense only, but to each his own.

I haven't honestly found a good reason to camo most weapons. If weapons are to be employed for hunting, or specialized military events then I could understand. However when you start shooting for self defesne whats the point? Especially a shotgun.

Now if your going hunting with it as well I completely agree.

Most of my shotguns are for duck hunting and are Krylon camo'd. My home defense 870 is finished in Brownells Coyote Brown Baking Lacquer... I disassembled, cleaned it with alcohol, painted it, and baked it (while the wife was away).

Why screw up a pretty gun?
