I would plug the barrel and tape off your glass.

Either way will work (I've done it both ways ) The easiest way to get the pattern to line up is to leave it on

Blue painters tape is awsome. The best way for me is too hang the firearm, like by a sling stud or such. Lots of light helps to make sure you get good coverage.

I have to give krylon some credit, if you do the right metal prep, it's freakin' tough to get it off
