Default DIY camo job

I have a cabinet full of 12 gauges, but my go-to field gun always seems to be my Mossberg 500 I bought about 12 years ago. It's just made to take a beating. Anyways, for turkey or coyote hunting I was worried about the glare off the shiny blued barrel, and the polished wood stock. I'm pretty sure it's busted me before! So I decided to try a custom paint job.

Now there are a lot of better ways to do this. Gunkote, dips, bake on sprays... But for a $150 beater shotgun, I'm not going through all of that. 2 cans of Krylon camo spray paint, and some break cleaner and sand paper I had laying around, and I've got a $7 camo job.


Before/After




I could have put a lot more in to it, but all I really wanted to accomplish was eliminate the glare. Pretty pleased with the results. Now with this fresh snow coming down, maybe I'll get a chance to field test it

The camo looks great, but not a fan of the stock. Nice work, you got skills.

Congrats on having a mossberg that actually hits target. My old camo combo was a disaster.
