Sounds good. I suppose you can't get much worse than the hi-gloss of the barrel before the paint. I'll have to run on down to wally world or somewhere and pick some up. I haven't handled it too much, but I can already see where my thumb sits on the grip. It scratches really easy too. I can't imagine trying to play a round with it without totally killing the paint job. So, as far as the clear coat application goes, should I just spray on a coat (liberally or thinly?), let it dry, repeat the process and get on 2-3 coats? Or what is the best way to apply it?

That aside, it looks really really good! I wasn't sure about the reddish color when you first added it, but all three colors together look really really good. And the pattern that you created is very unique - should be functional too. Well done sir!
You should have seen my face when we got done with the second coat (red on tan). My first thought was "wow, cool design", and my second thought was "Oh my gosh what have I done to my gun!" But it's all prettified now and I'm happy with it. I haven't been able to see how it blends with the woods around here, but I'm thinking it might be too bright. May have to try the same thing, but with less tan and olive drab as the base.
edit: double posted it somehow
