There is much validity to your post but the OP was writing about his grouse gun. I assume you eventually found your shotgun. :confused1: .

My compliment was one that prompted the start of the thread. I shoot grouse with my black Benelli m1 20. This is the era of personalization. Poster is paying homage to Ed Van Halen. A pioneer individualist in his own right. Poster doing it his way, had success. One that would paint his gun with the colors of his legend would assuredly never do anything to disrespect the legend.
Good luck to all I’ll be on the grouse woods for my 1 grouse hunt of the year before duck opens.
* edit yes I did eventually the others fired Hail Marys as the birds flew to my side.

If you're a responsible gun owner and learn to take care of your firearms you wouldn't be overly concerned with that sort of thing.

This photo of my Red Label was taken just about ten years ago last month and I had already owned it probably four or five years before that and it has been hunted hard . View attachment 854618


This is the receiver of my Remington M11 Sportsman that was built about 1936 - 86 years old . There is no reason to believe that this isn't the original finish - no beveling on the receiver or most important the screw heads "

This is what class is all about - Fiddleback walnut on my 52 year old Krieghoff target shotgun and fiddleback walnut on what undoubtedly is an ungodly expensive violin:

Take your shotgun to Guns Galore in Fenton and tell them how it's on the cutting edge of firearm technology and custom re-finished to look like some baggy panted R & R freak' s electric guitar and see how much they offer you for it.

It's about steel and walnut - not plastic and aluminum.

Nice guns of course.
I'm not against any gun.
To me it is a tool.
That is why the 870 is the most popular gun. A cost effective tool.

Considering that I will go into any cover and hunt all weather guns of value would get abused.
My montrefeltro has seen it all in 24 years and beat to death with probably a thousand days in the rain duck hunting and upland plus days on the water without rain.
I have a really nice superposed 20 ga that I use lightly because when I hunt I don't restrict where I go or what I do.
Some firearms are too nice to just take anywhere with no respect .
Cerakote guns are blue to preserving the look of traditional style guns.
you don't need to have color.
It is a personal preference.
I know one thing for sure is that when you are parallel to the earth my guns will have no value to me.

It's one thing to show off a clown gun for some attention and insincere "cool gun" remarks but then to claim it's the "ultimate grouse gun", well, that opens one up for deserved ridicule.

9 MM has reported you to the Ruffed Grouse Society and they’ll be on their way as soon as they finish lacing up their knee high russell moccasin boots.
Actually I was a founding member of the Detroit area RGS a goodly number of years ago and again years ago for a while wrote the Lansing chapter's newsletter.

At the risk of making 9 mm's head completely explode, here is the 2022 Luckydog grouse gun line up.

EVH and Captain America.

I am also a long time Moty owner, I believe mine is 30 years old, I bought it in 1992. The person that sold it to me Dave from Classic Arms and I tried to figure out how many rounds it has fired, and believe it's in the 20,000 range.

Is your stock the new stock that is flat by the trigger group or the old that has a cut out of the stock to accommodate the trigger? Mine is the old style and I have broken 2 stocks and they are very hard to get, the new ones are cheap on eBay.

I believe it is cut out if I am understanding you correctly.

Phase two will be the black hole debate
o/u vs s×s because we all know that if you don't hunt a s×s your not a true sportsman of wingshooting. lol
