Hi,

I'm new to airsoft so I've not got a licence yet, I was thinking of buying a really cheap pistol (15-20) for mucking about in the garden with, the only ones I can find at this price are bright orange. I'd like to use it as part of an outfit at a later date (Purely aesthetic reasons so I don't care if it's not actually very good)but I was wondering is how easy it would be to spray black once I've got a licence, I would use a primer etc but will the paint stay on? I was wondering if they had some sort of finish you couldn't paint over to deter people from buying one, spraying it and robbing someone etc.

Thanks

Paul

edit, the gun I was thinking of was something like this:

Have a look in the Guides section on the forum, it should be easy enough.
