    Station, 12th car ?.......do you need help to get out of there ?......I hit at least one turnkey a week with my truck and I try to miss. You need to migrate far away, surprised someone didn't shoot you on accident

    One of the keys to hunting is shutting your face lol......as much as I would spoon with you I'm not watching 15 minutes of you being a political prisoner.


    Anyway, tape is cool........ever take it off ? , is it a big adhesive mess when you do ?

    LMAO…. dude… a 5 minute hug from your meat hooks is plenty enough

    It's the mcnett fabric tape that kinda clings to itself. Very little if any residue but I don't keep it on for very long (maybe a month).

    Fun topic.

    Here are some that I have done over the years. Some for fun and personal reasons, some professionally for other folks. Not all of the pictures are all that great because some are before the digital age of camera's and were scanned from actual photo's from a 35mm camera, so some detail clarity is lost.

    oli my advice would be DO IT!
    Make sure the gun is real clean before you start.
    I use Fantastic and paper towels.
    The best thing about this technique is if at any time something happens to the finish, the repair of the finish takes about 2 minutes.

    If you dont like the way it comes out then you can always get some gas or thinner and take it off.
    I would do some "Google Fu" and search the internet for pics of sponge paint camo. I did before I ever attempted it.
    Helped convince me that I wanted to do it on a hunting gun.
