Will you pick on me if I paint my gun in a battle worn pattern?

I read that people talk smack with battle worn/distressed paint jobs anf was wondering if this is a real thing or what.

Opinions?

I build guitars, and they call guitars made to look 50 years old "relic" finishes. Folks tend to be love/hate about it. Same thing with folks that buy blue jeans with holes in them already.

Doesn't matter what you do, there will always be someone that disagrees with it.

~5-10 years ago, when vintage guitars got crazy expensive, a lot of folks made relic guitars so guitarists would have the look of a vintage guitar with modern playability, reliability and at a fraction of the cost. Even top pro musicians have reliced or repro guitars. The guys that like shiny guitars absolutely hated relic gutiars and talked serious smack about players who liked relic guitars calling them all sorts of nasty things from posers to crooks. Personally, I liked the relic look on a guitar because with it preworn I didn't have to worry about cracks.

I'd have to see it. If you made it look like a Bozo the Clown rifle i'd probably give you some ribbing over it. Nothing too mean though.

Thanks for the replies, pretty much what I was expecting. I was making sure because I dont want to be the "hipster" of the AR world.

Go for it unless you think there a chance of selling it or trading down the line.

This. It may affect resale value if you ever decide to sell it, but if you plan on keeping it, it's your gun and you're free to do whatever you want (within the boundaries of the las)

Do it. I used to care what people thought about what I did. I realized, who gives a S. My shield is color filled blue, I cut a .308 barrel down to 16". Just do what makes you happy. If anybody says anything, KMA.
