| | Re: GIMP gun textures tutorial(s)
Your problem isn't that there are no gun textures. The problem is that you're looking for specific tutorials.
What are guns made out of? Work out the materials you're trying to texture and find hints on texturing said materials. I wouldn't look for "car texturing tutorials", I'd look for tutorials telling me how I'd create metallic textures.
Look at the bigger picture rather than working under the effects of target fixation.
Texture tutorials are a tricky lot, though, since you need experience and general skill to apply what you've learned from the tutorial to an entirely different scenario. People expect tutorials to tell them how to do any specific task, but that's an impossible element, all they can do is give you the knowledge to apply it. Learning how to apply said knowledge is entirely up to you.
But, that's sort of soapboxing. Broaden your search to more generalized tutorials, and you shall find.
