Well, I believe the grandkids should be as excited about guns as I am.

All my grandkids start shooting at around 4 yrs old , with a Red Ryder.
SOON they graduate to a .22 rifle. In my case they are plinkin with a Crickett.
Then .38, then .357, then what ever they can handle.;):cool:

Just another practice session last week.

Trying to excite them , we call it Copperhead.
I did this to the Crickett.

btw, it was originally black synthetic.

Great job, looks awesome.

I was going to start by daughter off with a cricket, but decided to do a 10/22 with an axiom stock for light weight.

I just bought my nephew a camo one for his birthday, now he doesn't have to suffer with me teasing him about having to shoot his sister's pink 10/22. Going to take him out tomorrow and let him break it in a bit.

Looks good! Did you do a dip coating to it?
No sir,

Im too cheap for that.;):)

I sanded it ,removing all flashins, then sprayed it with a plastic primer, let dry and cure.
Then pulled womens(some guys I guess) fish net, panty hose over it and fitted it like I wanted pattern to look, then alternating colors, to get patterns, sprayed with Fusion paint.
Let cure for at least 7 days, then reassemble.
Another week then a good coat of Johnsons wax.

This seems to hold up very well,
Like ANY finish or wood, it will ding when hit on a car door edge. :(
