    more aggressive methods include common oven cleaner/aerosol automotive brake parts cleaner or naphtha

    Katie, you might want to price that mosin stock on ebay or gunbroker.com, might be a little change in the pocket depending on what you have....
    if its a Finn with cartouche marks, or even a regular Mosin stock it can be worth a little if its in good shape.... if its a Finn don't remove any of the old finish or touch it with sandpaper.

    000 or 0000 steel wool will knock that shine off your stock if you want, looks pretty nice kid

    Rattler, sure.... ill snag some pics for ya this weekend... its a stamped, matching (not forced) refurbed Izhevsk

    The Mosin stock has already been sanded and monkeyed around with before I got it. It's currently sitting under a thick coat of still tacky stain. Yuck. I'll look at it tomorrow, and see what I find or don't find. The oven is small, so I'll try the back of the truck. Once I get the danged stain off.

    I'll have some great update photos of the carbine tomorrow. I have the new front band, and it looks boss. I'm getting a bayonet with a dead handle next week; I'm going to replace the crumbly leather with semi-matching walnut.

    I had an interesting day. Mostly sitting and chatting, but also got a really good, detailed lesson on revolver operation from a friend. I got to try on the holstered Colt .45, and walked around feeling macho for a few minutes. We also discussed the difference between shooting at the range, and shooting when the worst case happens, and you need your FA. I spent a few minutes doing what I'll call an educational exercise. Stand in the kitchen, and suddenly whip around and confront an "assailant" behind me: turn-raise-dry fire, and then look at where my shot would have gone. The kitchen counter would have gotten really beat up, but that evil old bottle of Ajax did finally get it's imagined due justice in the end. LOL! In all seriousness, if you're gonna carry, you need to practice for situations like that. I never have, and I could see that in the wild directions my hypothetical rounds went, and by how awkwardly I drew and handled the pistol. I also learned what a wad cutter round is. Very interesting!


    I didn't get any pictures of the carbine. by the time we were about to go out back and start working on the truck/ picture taking, we got a cal from the range: the guy that was supposed to relieve the Range Officer didn't show up, and the current RO had to leave. That's where the rest of our daylight day went. Pics tomorrow, maybe. I got to be "Assistant RO" again. Soooo cool! The "kids" were good, at least. Only had to tell one once to slow down, and another to step forward a bit to line up with the rest of the guys. Afterwards we went back and studied and discussed the pit area, and had some fun picking at the accumulated lead concretion forming in the corners of the rear wall. Stuff gets pretty well beat up back there! I got to take home a small piece of the lead cake.

    Lil is going smallbore!



    I picked up my Ruger 10-22 today, after the forever-long California 10 day waiting period. I took it straight to the indoor range and first zeroed it, and then tried to see how tight a group I can get. Looks like I can hold an 8, for now. Needs practice, whew! This is at 50 feet, resting on a bench rest. Pictured is the back, that tells teh tale better than the oft-pasted front. Look carefully, you can see the black circle.



    The last target. I put up a fresh one just to see what I can do.




    I have been trying to learn a tough trick. Both eyes focused on something, at different distances. I managed a little bit at work, from my finger to my desk, and later from a spot on the windshield to a neat looking tail light across the way. But I haven't done any target practice since then, until now. I had to remember that I was trying to do this, but as soon as I thought about it, up popped an odd view. Just as I was told to try, I saw both the view through the scope AND the target at the 50' line, all by it's lonesome. The target was superimposed over/within the scope view, happily off to one side, out of the way. I remember that it's not supposed to be superimposed, that will take practice to get straightened. I'm just happy that I'm doing it! And, as far as I could tell, both views were in focus. Talk about weird!
