Hi Guys ,
I'm sure this may have been covered before , so forgive my ignorance .

I have been shooting my Gamo squirel target lately and have found that the paint comes off the paddle very quickly . I would like to repaint it to make it easier to see again . The yellow colour was easy to see while it lasted .

What type of paint makes the most durable finish ?

Any tips would be appreciated .
Thanks .
Warren

Get the "hammered" finish paints. They go on thick and are really durable. You can get them in spray bombs and pints.

Here is another alternative that I am finding to work very well:
http://www.airgunforum.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21221

Subsequent tests have shown this stuff to hold up very well - even after a solid afternoon worth of being hammered by numerous shooters at one of rvd's fun shoots, there is still enough bits of yellow left to have kept shooting for a few more hours.

I'm going to try the tape on my .22RF swinger target when I get the chance.

Forget the paint altogether and get vinyl tape to tape the back of the faceplate. Once there are too many holes, replace the tape.

This is how most of the guys that set up FT lanes in Canada are doing it now. A large kill zone like in a Gamo will take probably a hundred or so hits before you will need to change the tape. You only need a piece of tape about 2,5" long, so a role lasts a long time.
