Default my custom painted glock!!

I Broke out the airbrush and hooked up one of my Glocks.

I call it my "Gator skin Glock".

What do you guys think?

If anyone else wants any custom painting done just let me know, I can do pretty much whatever.....

looks like a good job. My gunsmith friends and I typically call it "snake skin" but it looks very nice. I can see why you'd use gator skin since the G and Glock make it roll off the tongue. I'm curious for what type of netting you used to break up the pattern? I've experimented with quite a few things and was curious what you used. What type of paint did you use? Looks good, keep it up.

I used nylon webbing. Duracoat paint.

LOL! I'd kind of like to see that. Not on my gun of course, but it would be interesting. Hmm... My wife does have this obsession with *pink* cow print stuff though.
