    My cheek is sticking to my stock, especially when I start to sweat. I tried using Remington pre-shave stick but that gets to be a pain. I thought someone mentioned a product that you can apply to the comb. I tried searching older posts for it, but like my keys, I can’t find it. Also, would a padded comb help with this problem?

    Body Glide anti-chafe... comes in a couple of different labels with and without a sunscreen. Applies like deodorant. Available at many running shoe, bicycle and sporting goods stores: <center>

    " I tried using Remington pre-shave stick but that gets to be a pain."


    So what makes it a pain? Sounds to me like your face sticking to your stock is the bigger pain.

    I wish my face would stick to the stock, all the time. I would use fish hooks if I wasn't such a WUSS.

    A little soap and water does wonders. Helps control the flies also.

    Grow a beard, problem solved. Cheaper and requires less effort than other options mentioned here. Other shooters also thank me for keeping a beard...I heard someone mumble something once about covering up some of the ugly, but I'm not sure what he meant...

    LMAO,,JHoward,,,I grew one and haven't used powder since,guess I forgot about that.So I have to add that to my suggestion also.BUT,watch out,I did notice at one point when I mounted gun and fired,it pulled a few hairs in the beard.Had to mount it slightly different not to get the beard pulled.Makes a nice padding also.

    I use the Meadow's Industries "slip-pad" on everything. Moleskin works good also.

    Wonder how the Slip Pad would work on a stock with the comb offset significantly (like a 1/4" of so)?

    Cornstarch! I have a wrist band that held hand warmers.....I take the hand warmers out in the summer and fill the pocket with cornstarch. I swipe it on my forehead and cheeks. OOO OOO OOO Might be a new product!! ;)

    In the summer, I put a strip of 1" blue or green painter's tape on my comb. The texture of the tape keeps my cheek from sticking and it's cheap and easily removable.
