    I just painted my new AR. I did this for a few reasons. I think it looks cool, it hides the gaudy logos and markings all over the optic, and of course, it blends in better with my environment than a scary black rifle. A side effect is that this makes it harder for me to sell, which is a plus in my case because I trade/sell more than I should.

    Anybody else paint their rifles? I'd love to see what y'all have done, especially some different color schemes and patterns that would work well for us in Oklahoma, both in rural and urban areas. I just did green and black using a laundry bag this time as it breaks up the basic shape of a rifle next to my clothing.

    You should go for it! Just be sure to mask off important markings and glass on optics or remove them entirely. The only other things you need to mask is the mag well, forward assist, trigger, and muzzle device if you plan to run a suppressor.

    You could take a stencil and paint "Sam I am" on it. Just think, a 'scary black rifle' and "Dr. Suess" together!

    It would make those with a weaker constitution pee their pants!!!

    Stupid by some, offensive to a few and funny by me.

    I rattle can painted my RRA LAR-15 - the first I ever bought, but I had a few others by then... I'll have to look around and see if I've got any pics. Kinda like @swampratt's up above.
