    Some use Vaseline or a shaving stick made of talcum powder.

    I rub my cheek with anti-perspirant, like Sure. It keep it from sweating and makes it nice and slick so the comb doesn't grab it when the gun recoils.

    Rain is not the only reason to weather proof a gunstock.

    Wow Nyttro - I would not harm a dog as they do not know any better, but I would be looking for a dog owner. But seriously, the sweating on my stock is not an issue for me. My issues are sweat in my eyes or running down my glasses and maintaining a solid grip on the gun (pretty important for the second shot of doubles)

    smsnydr- When I was younger I used a shaving stick but then I had this stuff on my face for the rest of the day. I graduated to using "mole-skin" on my stock. You can get it at about any drug store. Dr Scholls sells it for bunion protection or some sort. It is light brown/tan, sticky on the gun side and fuzzy on the face side. Nice and thin so as not to distort your sight picture. When it gets too dirty or wears too thin it can be easily replaced. Works for me.

    Shoot in Alaska. Sorry I had to say it! Best thing I know of is to just keep a towel with you and wipe your face between station changes. I cannot wear blinders though because my glasses fog up that is my biggest problem!
