If this was taken from a Flickr user, you need to get their permission to modify and reupload it (unless they specifically uploaded it under a share and share alike copyright statement, which they did not) and also credit them by name.

Well the only rules I am aware of that are BIG in the pmg community is to show credit as to where you got it. If it was not to be used by others they wouldn't upload pasties to begin with lol

The only universal rules involved are those of copyright and allowances thereof. Unless an artist either gives explicit permission, or publishes their work under a copyright statement that allows public use (Creative Commons is one such copyright type) they are entitled to exclusive ownership of their work without the allowance for use by others.
This situation is slightly complicated by the fact that Pimp My Gun is a third party asset source, however the basic tenants still apply.

TL;DR version:
Don't use another person's assets (PMG codes) unless they either give explicit permission on the source page, or you ask for permission and receive it from them via comment/message/etc.

He posted the pastie, I would consider that as use my work. It was originally produced by KryptoSphynx on flickr. Considering I modified it that would make it mine. If I had not on the other hand I would have to ask permission from the artist to re upload his "stock" image. From what I read on US copyright laws if you modify or alter a stock photo it becomes yours, the only thing you have to do is give credit for the stock photo or image. Which I forgot to do, that can be fixed !

Availability does not equal permission, and modifying the work of others does not grant you ownership/copyright under normal circumstances.
The only way you can claim ownership (copyright) over a work created in part with the assets of others is if they SPECIFICALLY grant permission and copyright authorization, such as in the case of those who provide stock assets to photoshop artists, either at a price or free of charge.
If an artist in the Pimp My Gun community posts a weapon or weapon part code under the statement that others are permitted to use it, you may then use it on your own creations, provided you credit the original artist for their work.

In short, you cannot claim ownership over something, even if you modify it, unless it is originally distributed under the proper copyright statement. The default copyright statement attached to Flickr uploads is All Rights Reserved, which does not allow for unauthorized derivative works.
