7 posts in this topic

To get rid of the rust, go to any auto parts store and buy a can of,"PB Blaster." It's a spray rust remover. Next you will need some Extra Fine steel wool. Spray a small amount of the PB Blaster on the steel wool. Be careful not to overdo it because you do not want it to come into contact with the wood stock. Gently wotk the steel wool over the rusted area. Wipe the area clean so you can check to see if you have gotten all the rust. If you haven't, work it with the steel wool again. Once you have the rust removed to your satisfaction, take a new steel wool pad and apply a few drops of any good gun oil. Gently work it into the area's where you have just removed the rust. Lastly wipe off any excess oil. Then you should be good to go. If you have to take heroic measure's to get the rust removed, you might want to consider re-bluing the gun. I hope this helps and good luck to you. grin.gif1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Don't reblue. If a gun is a collectors item, then a decision to reblue should be taken carefully and if done it should be by a specialist. Some valuable guns that are not collectibles are worth having a top quality blue job done. In most cases "affordable" reblue jobs are less than satisfactory. If you have a "working gun" that needs refinishing go for one of the new finishes or even parkerising.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
