    Get it warm and peel it off. Then clean the glue off with goo gone.

    The citrus type furniture polishes such as Orange Glo work great to remove the sticker residue as well. Heck it will even remove the whole sticker if you let it soak on it for awhile.

    WD40 is also an excellent adhesive remover.

    From a good auto supplier pick up 'decal remover' - used to get stick on tapes, etc. off of car finishes.

    Works like a charm, just be sure it won't hurt the fniish before you spray it all over the stock.

    Most gummy adhesives will come clean with simple vegetable oil. It takes a little time, but its far safer than some of the solvents. I've been using vegetable oil for decades on tape residue on our store windows.
