I think what he meant was that you did such a good job that he couldn't see your weapon in the pic. Good job Dave, hope my messages helped you figure the technique out. And I see you figured the photo posting thing out too

You can paint barrel on or off. The clearcoat adds durability to the paintjob, and makes cleaning it easy without rubbing off the painted finish. When mine gets dirty I spray the paintjob with glass cleaner and wipe it off. No oil.
Ever thought of doing a short video on the "how to" of the camo process. Maybe do a complete camo job and give instruction as you go. Some guys like me are visual learners and like to see it done before jumping in.
Just a thought about a video. I for one would be interested in purchasing a copy.
Sorry for the quality of the photos, this digital camera isn't that good. Thank all of you guys that posted pics of your rifles and for all of the tips that you guys supplied. I was intimidated to do this until I read your guys' posts and tips.
