    No, this is not a joke. I want actual opinions. Note that your honest opinion might come back to bite you in the butt because I will 100% give you credit if you give me any really sparkly ideas. I'm actually going to do this to one of my actual match rifles.

    Why? Well garish guns get in the heads of other competitors, I never mistake my rifle for anyone else's and it keeps guy mitts off my rifles... they don't want to be associated with something so garish. The rifle I'm doing this to was already painted like a Texas coral snake in one iteration and a hot dog with mustard and relish in another iteration.

    Why might you think it might be a joke? Well I'm doing a My Little Pony rifle this time. I tried to do a Megaman rifle but it just didn't work. 8 bit graphics kinda suck.

    I could do the old woodland pattern:

    Or use silhouettes for a DIY rattle-can camo job and go with a lavender background color and gold/pink/blue silhouettes crossed up in the usual camo way but also add a top coat of glitter and then clear coat over the top.

    Or just go whole hog and do something similar to the Glambo rifle but with Pinky Pie or Rainbow Dash.

    If I do Pinky Pie then that would be what... "Pinky Die" with a pink pony tail and pink wig on the scope?

    Or do I do Rainbow Dash and call it "Painbow Dash" or maybe "Rainbow Path" or "Rainbow Trajectory"?

    Vote your conscience.

    I like the idea Dusty. Might just do that. It would have to be something in-character for a main character pony so it'd need to be saccharin sweet, touchy feely, positive and supportive. If we could pull off that in the form of a back handed compliment, I think it'd be perfect. Like "You're such a good shot, guy. I don't know why you're losing."

    I'm really leaning toward the multi-bright-color + glitter option but something about "Painbow Dash" really resonates.

    To me, this is like Harley owners. Dress up on the week-end and pretend you're someone you're not.

    Sorry, I'm not impressed.

    But I'm just some old guy, so who cares what I think , eh?

    Just know if you show up looking rediculous you better win. You cant have a pink rifle and come in last. I have no idea how that rig shoots but if it was mine it would look like every other rifle on the line and not stand out at all in its present form

    Ok 55fairlane has me intrigued. Could ditch the dog and pony show and go with a full monty bike style job. 55Fairlane, could you get me a better quality pic? I'm old enough to remember the 70's but not old enough to remember what amounted to good taste at the time.
