I'd try black and grey in digital with the orange thrown in.

I have often thought that would be the perfect color for a deer rifle, to go with the vests and to make sure you don't have trouble seeing it. A buddy has a camo Savage bolt gun, and i can see this guy leaning it against a tree to whizz then walking off and not being able to spot it later.


edit* Duracoat has a "bloomberg collection" WTHH?

Check out Charter Arms. They have lots of different revolver colors. Maybe you could talk about orange being a toy / training color and show her the colors that are available and see if she likes one? Otherwise, I'd try to make something orange. Maybe you could paint wood grips on a revolver. Good luck!

Charter Undercover Red & Black

Sorry for the meaningless post, just throwing out ideas.
its a high point what do you expect

I'm in the same boat as you my wife wanted an orange pistol as well! Couldn't find orange cerakote, so I had it wrapped in Matt orange automotive foil. So far 1k rounds and it has held up, it's only on the ciener .22 slide, for plinking.
