i use a black Beretta and SBE2 and never had ducks or geese flare because of them being black. Maybe its because i hunt almost exclusively out of a layout blind but i don't have a problem.

If you're hunting in a blind and follow the all important rule "keep your barrel down", the color of your boom stick doesn't matter one iota. If you're hiking in and campin out in cattails or sitting in the water in your waders, you will definitely have to give the gun finish some consideration. I have a black browning and kill plenty of birds with it. When I'm hiking in someplace I'll use a two piece neoprene camo gun barrel and stock sleeve. Dirt cheap and absolutely can't chip. Lol. Ive actually started leaving it on the barrel in the blind. I know its' a duck gun but I hate getting scratches. I was raised Polish (humor here, please don't bite my head off), I try to make everything last forever. The sleeve protects it when I lay it against the side of the boat or if it falls.

Just keep the dang gun still, and it won't need camo bra and panties.

I grew up shooting a blued A5 16ga and a blued 20ga 870 and never had a problem. This picture is from this past season. How does one manage to kill a limit of mallards in the wide open? The sticks that the ducks are hanging on is the blind :fingerhead: Be still and it doesn't matter what color your gun is

Have you ever had a duck get impaled by one of those sticks?

I was asking myself the same question when I was looking at the pictures.

It seems like with that spot that the birds are never moving fast enough to impale themselves but I had a spoonie get impaled a few years back when it hit a tree. That "hole" actually isn't much of a hole. It's just a shallow flat on a 3,700 acre lake. I did rip a quarter sized hole clean through my waders out there on a 10 degree morning this past season :lol3:

Here's a few pictures from the same spot during the summer

I wouldn't even think of bringing a dog into that area :lol3: Between the sticks and the giant mats of smartweed, it's great for the ducks and the bass fishing but hell for everything else

Camo is way overrated and is just as effective as natural colors. Oh ya, camo guns are ugly as sin!!

I just checked with all the ducks and geese we shot here in Jersey this past season on which color combination they preferred being shot with...

Seems they don't have an opinion!

Shoot whatever the *BLANK* you want to shoot!

If someone will buy the stocks and paint I'll put bright pink stocks on my blued browning silver and I'll probably kill just as many birds with it as I did with my camo gun during the 2012 season.

I started off with a wood and blue Winchester 1300 20 gauge and than moved up to my dad's old Wingmaster, also walnut and blue. i have no idea if they flared any ducks or not, but I felt bad because I tend to go to out of the way spots and was kind of hard on them. I now have a black 870 Express that I will most likely give a rattle can camo job since it rusts if you look at it funny.

no, camo does not really make that big of a difference. If your are going to use it for turkeys, i would get camo, but really it does not matter. I've killed plenty of ducks and turkeys with black finished guns. Save your money to spend on the other expenses of hunting.
