My wife has been wanting me to paint her calling rifle ever since I painted mine.

Barbara said she wanted a bobcat track on the side of it....

It got me to thinking about the recent article in Predator Extreme magazine about how coyotes "see" camoflage.

A bobcat has the most convincing camo of nearly all animals that I know of....Plus, I like the way a bobcat is colored. They are magnificent! Especially those with lots of color.

So, I did some thinking about how to paint Barbara's rifle to look like a bobcat pattern.

It took some doing to get a plan & then buy the flat paint that would work for the new camo pattern.
I finally bought what I thought would work, & Saturady evening I put it all together on her rifle.

I mean, my wife is my calling partner, & she is very special, so nothing less than a special paintjob would work, Right?

Here's a few pics of her rifle.

As you can see, I DID paint a bobcat print on the reciever for her....She loves the print & the pattern.

What do you guys think?





Closer....for detail



I'd love to hear your opinions.
BTW, her AR shoots sub-moa & she IS deadly with it!

Thanks for looking!

Barry

Scary, huh? My dad always said to think twice about teaching your girlfriend/wife how to shoot a gun.

Looks great, btw.

Rocky,

I shoot Ultramax 55 gr SP & ballistic tips. My M-4 shoots a little better, but I added a free-float forend to it.

Through my Savage 10FP I get .25 groups pretty consitantly with the same ammo.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

That is a really nice paint job. It is not your everyday, run of the mill camo job. It is original and one to be proud of.
