    I am surprised Camoclad is still in business.... Heard they lost all the rights to Realtree and Mossy Oak...

    Lots of other (and in some cases, better) patterns out there besides those two.

    I took a used 870 express and painted it tan with regular spray paint. I then used a fern leaf as a stencil and made a sort of camo pattern using olive green paint. I went over it with a matte clear finish, but didn't let it dry long enough between coats so I had some bubbling. I know what to do now and touch it up. It was cheap but worked well for an inexpensive gun that is going to see tough conditions. Since I am only 5'5", length of pull is an issue with me on a lot of guns, so I took the butt stock off and shortened it about an inch and a half by wrapping it with masking tape to prevent chipping and cutting it on our table saw. It's not very pretty but I have shot quite a few ducks with it at very close range and I didn't break the bank. When it gets to looking too bad, I'll just paint it again.
