    recoil pad on a Kolar is very slick and wants to slide around alot. Does anyone know of an easy cure that won't be messy? pad has hole in middle but appears to be a decelerator pad? Thanks in advance

    Get some rosin at a sporting goods store. That will help - though it sounds like you really ought to get a new pad.

    didn't know what was beneath the surface. I guess a gentle roughen up will help for now. I know it needs replaced, but won't be anywhere to get it done right away.

    RTV silicone. Smear it on with your fingers, let it harden, and you're good to go.

    i have had similar issues over the years with all kinds of pads.

    what i have found that works for me is a spray can baseball players use that simulates pine tar (but it's not) wont come off on hands or clothes...but is tacky enough not to let it slip on your shoulder.

    dicks sporting goods is where i found it.

    Go to a hardware store and get a strip of adhesive stair tread material, made by 3M. Cut it to fit your butt plate/recoil pad, then heat it with a hair dryer as you apply it. The gun stays put, and the material won't tear up your shooting vest. No mess, either.

    I occasionally have the opposite problem. I'll mount the gun and it feels like it's planted just a little low (rarely would it be too high). I remount the gun, as it never feels right if I try to just slide it up a bit.

    At the segestion of a golfer, that says some golfers use on the grips of clubs.

    Wet a wash cloth, rag, then get a good amout of Comet Cleanser, or similar stuff on the cloth and rub hard.. Sounds odd but I have done it and it does work.

    I use Simple Green on my golf grips, and it restores the tackiness. That and rough it up a little with a rasp to take the glaze off. Mark

    If you're havong trouble with an inconsistent mount, Rollin Oswald ("Stockfitting Secrets")suggests you try raising your (trigger hand) elbow just a little. It will make the "pocket" in your shoulder more defined and lead to more consistent mounts. This really helped me - as far as I'm concerned, this tip paid for his book. Good luck.

    Rubbing alcohol will work and very easy to rub on and off.
