And this is what happened. It was too crappy to go to the range and shoot so I stripped my Savage down and painted her.

I painted a light tan base coat and then got some pine tree branches from the tree outside and painted successively darker paints. Tan first, then green, then brown, then black.

I just used Krylon camo paint. Now before all of you high and mighties jump all over me for using Krylon. I know there are better options out there for paint. However, this was a learning experience for me and Krylon can be taken off fairly easily if I don't like it. Plus, I figured that if Krylon can hang in the side of an oil soaked railcar for thousands of miles it should be able to hang on the side of a fairly babied rifle.

Now, I know the process of how to get the camo color I want and when it comes time to strip off the paint and start over I will know how to do it.

No, it's 10FCPXP that was purchased from Dick's Sporting goods for $700 with scope. Not that scope, but with a scope. It's a .308. The weird thing is that if you look at Savages website they don't list a 10FCPXP like this one. The list one similar without flutes and with a McMillian stock for around $2000. This stock is just a Savage tupperware stock and not even an accu-stock.

The next one will be a Stevens Model 200 that I am getting or my kid. Probably will be done in nearly the same fashion.

I have always wanted to go to Miami. I could go to Disneyland while I was down there.
