You say It has one coat of mineral spirits? Well it won't be on there anymore. Mineral Spirits evaporates almost immediately.

Macon Gun Stocks??? They put the mineral spirits on it just to show the wood grain! It evaporates quickly and is of no protective value. The stock is will require a finish of some type.

Again i may not doanything as it is gonna get beat up but i figured since i will be doing it in the offseason i would try to make it look nice. Thamks ben

Don't use linseed oil. The Lin-speed oil that halfmile mentioned is a modified oil similar to the more commonly available Birchwood Casey Tru-oil. Follow the directions and apply as many coats as you desire. It is easy to repair.
