look up some of wey ferro's (might be wey farrow) M4 pics in the This is the M4 thread.
That's all you need to do to paint a gun so it doesn't stand out.
lay it on the ground, spray it, flip it over, spray it. not covering everything in one pristine even coat = more breakup of the mental "it's a gun!" association

if it ends up looking like a pile of yard waste...you've done a great job
