Should hold up pretty nice, all the paint is the same stuff used on cars.

Heh... was thinking that about the next gun I was going to get (dropped the Alias idea... I like another gun better now) when I get more monies and another job...

Actually, I own a Taco painted gat. ;) The car paint holds up fairly well, but with regular wear and such it does rub off some... I'm a bit rough on that marker, though, so it might just be me. Quality with the airbrush is superb, and the finish has a nice feel to it.

This one looks nice, Taco! :)

Wow, looks amazing.
Any interest in airbrushing for the public?
How much does the equipment cost to do it yourself?
