I am gearing up for turkey hunting and I m wondering what to do with my O/U shotgun. I have a Mossberg Silver Reserve 12g and it has a nickel colored reciever, now i am wondering what options i have in order to help conceal it. I figured i could use a camo wrap, but i wouldn't be able to wrap where the action breaks, which is where the nickel is. next i could use some camo tape, but i don't know how resilient it would be against heat and if it would leave a residue on the weapon. I want to be able to conceal the gun, and be able to break the action to reload and what not. Any insight would be very helpfull.

Get a box of black latex gloves at an auto parts store, cut one back behind the fingers so the glove becomes basically a stretchy band. Pull it over the gun to cover the nickel receiver. It will keep everything covered but it will stretch when you open the action. I wouldn't worry about the gun not being camo. Thousands (if not millions) more gobblers have been taken with blue/walnut shotguns than with camo guns.
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

Those disposable black gloves come in handy for lots of different things. Good luck on your hunt.

The black gloves are the best! You can also pick them up at Home Depot in the tool area.

Krylon camo paint will do the job.

I got a neoprene camo kit from basspro that will do the job nicely, i also paired it with a set of carlsons coyote ported chokes. She's hungry for some turkey and coyote.

I had an old pair of camo pants that no longer fit me . I cut off the legs & had 2 non perm camo covers for any gun . Just use a good rubberband around the holes .
