    Hi all

    just got my 3/4" Gooey Pad installed - I have a fully adjustable pad plate on the back of the stock, and when I was drilling a hole through the Gooey pad a 1/4" piece of material flew off (I probably should have tried freezing the pad first). So I now have a chunk missing just above the hole I use to adjust the pad.

    I love the feel of the pad, but I am worried that the missing chunk may deteriorate further. Anyone have any advice? I wonder if some silicone or something else will bind to the Gooey pad and allow me to fill in the hole....

    And next time I'll be more careful... :)

    You're probably right - I was thinking the same thing. I can likely buy a new pad down at the Kingsburg shoot.

    Or you could carve out a similiar hole above the other set screw hole and pretend it is supposed to be that way. Long time no see.

    If you have the piece that flew out you can glue it back in with some Permatex. HMB
