I've learned I need gun socks the hard way

    Makes me beyond mad at myself knowing a $5 gun sock could have prevented these scratches. I told my hard headed self "they don't need to be in socks in the safe". Never again. I'll be going to Academy and buying every one they have Monday.

    I made a scratch on my arsenal AK with the gas tube lever and felt the same way. it is what it is. I hope that is a rifle you love as I love mine. I won't be selling mine so it makes it "not so bad" still it made me sick.....

    With any luck at all perhaps those scratches can be buffed out, maybe
    SumGuy could help if you're in easy driving range of Duelin Banjers.

    I too need a few gun socks. Trying to remove long arms from my cramped and tiny safe is like playing Milton Bradley's board game, Operation. A bigger safe would also cure my problem but that will be a future possibility after we move into our new house in a month and no longer renting and have the space.

    There's so little room in my tiny safe I am amazed none of mine have gotten really banged up.

    I have several socks to use but none are in use right now.

    How deep are the scratches? They could possibly be lightly sanded and then polished.

    Yep. Guilty. I need to buy more myself. Luckily all my guns are junkers.

    Yeap, every time I save money for another safe, I find a gun I have to have

    Scratches aren't too deep. Thought about trying some Flitz and lightly polishing but don't want to screw if up. The Sum Guy option sounds good if I get that direction sometime and he'll have me.

    You need to go ahead and give me all those junkers and buy you some decent ones! :p

    That's why my safe is full of MilSurps...they're already beat up. Another boo-boo is no biggie. Hate it for you, though.

    Sometimes you can find the surplus U.S. wool neck scarves cheap. I don't have any guns worth a store bought gun sock.
