This was years ago,but the topic still brings laughs around our family.....
I was sort of sneaking in rifles.My excuse was not about the money but about wifey not understanding that each rifle had specific chores.For a cpl very good reasons,I kept painting the syth stocks the same flat,O.D. Green.Hey,I liked the color.....and it was working very well for hunting.Most were sporting bipods and slings,ect,ect.
One day I was cleaning out the safes or sumthing?But in anycase there was a whole line of these basically,look-a-like rifles.Think about 10-12 feet's worth....side by side(a BUNCH).And guess who happens to walk in?She didn't "get it" at first.......but you could see the wheels turning.She didn't say anything .....just shook her head and kept walking.
The kids now joke about that color whenever the subject of rifle or bow paint is brought up....go figure?
