need advice on painting a wooden stock??
I wanna paint the stock on my 12 guage but dont know what the best paint is to use and dont know the best way to use it. I dont want it to rub or scratch off easily in the woods

Sounds like you just need to pick up a synthetic stock.
Or.... What kind of paint are you thinking?

Is it a really nice stock already? Is it stained nad lacquered or oil finished?

I would use a spray paint to cover it smoothly and evenly and let it dry well and then I would apply several coats of polyacrylic. The poly is chemical and solvent resistant and will give you a nice finish. It comes in satin and clear and maybe another finish. depending on what you are crawling therough, the stock will scratch. If you want a no-nonsence finish, get a composite stock.

Krylon spray works good. Adheres well, and is resilient. Buff the surface with some 400 paper and spray exactly as the can directs.

You could try this.

depends on the gun make and model and the type of wood the stock is made of. if it's the cheaper wood than i say go for it. if it's a nice piece of walnut and a nicer shotgun, then you would be better off refinishing the stock than painting because painting it would decrease the value a lot. another option would be as some else posted would find a synthetic replacement and keep the wood stock, especially if the wood is really nice.
