Not good enough. It's not as bad as the Universal Camouflage Pattern the Army is using now, but it isn't as good as MultiCam either. Take a look at the helmet in the photo. Does it stand out? You bet it does! Too much charcoal gray in one place. Those dark streaks are remeniscent of "tiger stripe"; which was a "cool" camo pattern, but not very effective outside of think-canopied jungles.

Well, you can always spray paint.

It leaves a confirmed outline at the head and shoulders. I know were not talking about the sun glasses but if I was tring to sell it I would shed the glasses and paint his face. Don't get me wrong I like pink but not with that bone structure.

If you guys were going to put a professional camo pattern on your Barrett, which would you choose?

Me, personally? MultiCam. Hands down. It doesn't look as cool as this new A-TACS pattern (on a firearm, MultiCam looks downright stupid). But I believe it is more effective in a wider variety of environments. Effectiveness beats good looks in my book.

I am thinking about getting my Barrett M99 dipped in a camo pattern at a local shop and I have it narrowed down to Multicam and A-TACS.

I agree with you. Multicam only looks right on clothing and gear. NOT firearms.

A-TACS looks really good on firearms though. I am really leaning toward A-TACS due to the 'cool' factor. I know it sounds lame, I guess it's all about my own enjoyment and not so much about perfect concealment.

Yeah, you probably won't be hiding form anyone you are shooting. :D

Hey! That's why we have 50's. We don't have to hide really good when we are shooting from 1000 yards. Right?

You could set up a card table to shoot from and they still wouldn't see you!

Here is an example from the shop's website.
