It was beautiful outside today. Its hard to believe that just earlier this week, we received between 15 and 20 inches of snow. Today it was 65 out and the sun was shining. Unfortunately there are still areas that are covered with snow, and those that aren’t, are just big mud holes. Shooting wasn’t really an option.
As I mentioned in a post the other day I was waiting for a warm day to paint my rifle’s handguard. Today I did it. I went to the store and bought myself some Krylon Fusion gloss white paint, came home, disassembled my rifle, and started painting. I enjoyed every minute of it.
The paint says on the can that it dries in 15 minutes or less and that is no lie. Each coat I put on was dry to the touch in less than 5 minutes. I painted my handguard, two of my 22lr magazines, and my pistol grip in less than 20 minutes. I reassembled my rifle, sat back, and admired the results. I am very pleased with how this turned out.
So what do you think? Did I do a good job? Or does it look stupid? You can say whatever you want about it, I love it. And I don’t see that changing. But I always like to hear what people think about my guns.
