Here is the "federal" green and desert tan you can get at home depot. they are water based and you can cut the paint and use one of those 9.99 hobby spray guns from harbor freight

I painted a trailer with the Home Depot stuff, was not impressed. I'd rather shoot the real stuff, if not CARC then something identical in color. The 383 is a few shades darker.. kid at Home Depot tried to lighten it up to no avail. Got through in a pinch, but I don't think I'd do it again. Even with good scuff and acetone prep, doesn't seem to have good mechanical adhesion. M1009 and M1161 already match, I'd like a few others in the fleet to match

Some of us have had very good matching with the FS 34094 color blend at the big box stores, give-or-take a hair for sun fading, wear, or original batch variation. I think you got a bad mix or spec. "383 green" and "NATO green" are crossover names but not a usable references, and CARC is a system, not a color. An alternative is to use automotive enamel paints available from local suppliers under the same FS number, or online from several suppliers starting at about $40 a gallon. Other durable paint types available can rapidly increase cost (urethanes and poly's), and rattle cans are also common to find. If adhesion is poor, be sure to use a compatible primer system, as the point of the original CARC system was for stuff (N/B/C and fallout) not to stick.;) Lots of options!
