Default Do you put stickers on your gear?

I do, for 2 reasons
a-adds color to the marker and makes it stand out without reannoing it
b-I have a LOT of stickers

I came accross a label maker and made my own stickers, plus I've got other ones.
Here is what I did to my shocker, to say "this is my stuff." I liken it to wearing a blank T shirt as opposed to one with a design.
Yes, that is anime, no I am not some kid who lives in a hovel and only watches anime, but I do enjoy it some times. So, I put it on my gun for a laugh.

I put stickers on my loader and tool box, but NEVER on my gun - I like to show off the finish on my guns so I keep them cleaned and "pure". Stickers make guns look sort of cheesey, IMO. But, to each their own!

My "finish" is horrid.

Hahaha, that looks like 90 percent of the Shockers I've ever seen. Mine is the only one that I haven't noticed any noticeable wear on the anno - and I've used it hard over about 4 years. That's VERY rare and I wish it would add to the value, haha!

Shockers have become like cockers and freestyles. They are only valuable to the person that owns them. I got mine in really bad shape, since then I have got that thing working really well. put over $200 into it all told. Shoots darts.

not a big fan of stickers, if you ever want to take them off its a hassle to get that residue off. i put some on my mini fridge and gun case, but neither of those have much value anyway, PMR's don't need help looking mega super awesome anyhow.

Default Re: Do you put stickers on your gear?

I use all of my stickers on the back of my door in my room, I think putting them on gear makes the gear look cheap. I mean if I spend over a thousand dollars on a marker, I want to keep it looking nice.

Default Re: Do you put stickers on your gear?

I only have one sticker on my gear, and that's on the back of my VLocity. Plopped a SoftEarMods one on there and cut it down the middle with an Xacto knife so I can still disassemble it, but I'm still repping one of my favorite stores. If HobbyHorse had stickers, I'd rep one of those too, I just don't know where yet.

Schecter, that sticker on the left side's as cool as ****!
