    The time has come again to repaint my 1100 stock. I haven't shot it in a year or so, and since going to a PFS late last year on my dedicated skeet gun, my dimensions have changed drastically (most drastically, offset, of which I have close to 1/2" on my PFS), so i had to do some grinding on the 1100 stock to match dimensions as best as I can so I can use the 1100 for trap and sporting clays this winter. I'd like to do a black base w/ white stripes (using torn masking tape for the stripes) and possibly some paint masks. All the painting i've done in the past w/ rattle cans has gotten somewhat soft over time (this last one I was able to scrape the paint off the sharp corners w/ my finger nail). Is there any specific brand i should use for better results, or a different technique? Since I don't shoot the 1100 much anymore, this paint job will have to last for awhile.

    some auto parts supply shops will custom mix high quality automotive enamel or laquer and put it in a spray can for you...you should look into that...

    What is this "offset" to which you refer?

    Is it the same as castoff/on??

    Paint you can scrape off with a fingernail is soft because it was applied over an improper base. Try using the correct primer first.

    I have painted several bechrest stocks using a base of PPG Ditzler epoxy primer and then PPG catalyzed acrylic enamel...turned out good.
