the things you will need is

-a gun (of course)
-camouflage spray paint
-tree leafs or certain plants
-tape (optional)

It dose not madder what gun you use, my gun is a "Remington 12-gauge Pump", but any gun will work even a paint ball gun or a be-be gun. The camouflage spray paint can be found at wal-mart or a paint store for about 3-5 dollars a can, pick 3 different colors, I used brown, olive, tan. The leafs can be all sort of things like oak, pine, and clover leafs. You only need the tape if you can't get the stocks off.

Step 2: Shake and Spray

Now go ahead and shake up the paint and start spraying down a base color. I picked olive to be my base. Make sure every time you spray on the paint you give it time to dry, otherwise it may mix oddly. After it drys, get a leaf and hold it over the stock and spray a different color on it. I chose tan. And theres your first leaf.

Step 3: Painting tips

You may want to try out the leaf patterns your self first on cardboard or paper. also make sure to change the leafs up to give it a more nature look so no animal notices it. you can also put a mist of colors on the stock in order to put away some of the bright color and give it a faded look. When you move your hand, do it side to side at a medium pace so there isn't a big solid color somewhere and a big leaf. (animals notice)

What happens if you drop it?
because we all want to be dropping our shotgun whenever we go hunting? i even throw my up in the trees and fetch it down with a stick!? you take care of guns... you dont ewven allow fingerprints, the greasy acid stays there and erodes your gun

that is a risk but also think about when you buy a store bought gun. Im sure if you drop it, the gun will scratch or something depending where you are, and just ake care of it, if it gets scratched do some touch ups.

wel, actualy its not its a winchester bolt action... any ways the gun on the web sight is pretty nice!
Im skeptical. That looks like water transfer printing. If you really did paint that , however, i give you some serious props. Please show me how to do it that good.
thanks alot.but i just got some black brown and green spray paint and did it
at first it looked like a daisy grizzly but i think its a pump action shotgun...

You might want to cover it with a clear coat. It will make it feel less like spray paint. It will also ensure the paint lasts longer on the gun.

That also depends on your use of this camo, if you use it for hunting, no way would you want to do that. Clear coat paint gives it a glimmer it needs to stay a flat color. Otherwise go ahead if it just for looks.
You can get matte clear coats, too.
