    What's the best method for removing an adhesive cheek protector from the comb/stock on a trap gun? I've removed most of the outer layer but the adhesive itself is another problem. Any good remedies other than not installing one in the first place?

    Buy some Goof Off at the hardware store. Works great but the smell will kill you.

    WD40 will take it right off. Just spray onto a rag and wipe clean. Won't harm the finish one bit.
