Competitive rifle shooters do use a spray. Champions Choice in Lavergne Tennessee is a good source. Service rifle shooters are forced to use the military style metal butt plates so the sticky spray is the only way they can go. I agree with those above that recommend a new pad, as shotgunners do not have restrictions against that. Kick Eze is a good one, but there are lots of other good ones too. Good Luck
I have kick-eze pads on lots of guns, best pad I've used. The pad in question is on a Win.M12 two pin trap, it's all original and I would like to shoot it with the original pad. Thanks for the replies.
Get a new Winchester replacement pad. Wont last but it'll work for a while. The only thing I've ever seen that will tack up a real rubber pad is a product "Bleach White". It wont last either but it takes just a few drops for a pad and you can redo it over and over. Those old red pads got awfully hard. Good luck.
When my golf grips get slick, I use full strength Simple Green on them and they go back to being tacky. I just tried some Simple Green on an old Beretta recoil pad that I have and it seemed to do the same thing. Worth a try.
I agree with Fishguts, but it's bird season coming and I'd like to shoot my 20 ga SxS that has the correct period pad, the orange smooth faced one. I'd like to keep the pad, although on second thought, we have a resident wizard here that I'll have put on a temporary pad for the bird season. Shoot often while we can, Bob
