Well, I sand to 400, wisker 3 or 4 times and take off the whiskers with a scotch bright pad or 000 steel wool, my stocks are almost shiney when I get them ready for stain.

I haven't uses any stain but aquafortis, it soaks up just fine in my stock wood.

On metal I am going to brown I don't go past 220 and get a better brown that way.

Got it together over the weekend.  I’m pleased with the turnout and am looking forward to getting it into the field this summer for hogs.

Thanks for the help on questions guys.  I learned a lot!  I’ll be working on a rifle in time, but plan on getting a bag together for this gun and wrapping up a couple outstanding bow projects first.

Cheers guys.

Thanks Pat, many thanks Eric.  Eric, I'm looking to take it out to the fields on Saturday.  I'll keep you posted.

Pat, we won't be making it this year.  We are doing fine just moving through our responsibilities these days.  I'll be missing the comradery.
Wishing all of you the best and will be thinking of you guys.
