Default Sandable recoil pad help in San Antonio

I have a shotgun that I installed a sandable recoil pad on.

I could do it by hand but someone with the equipment and know how would be better suited since the excess is a bit excess.

Iím in the San Antonio area

SA covers a large area, but if you're close, try this

http://nsc.nssa-nsca.org/

It's one of the finest shooting complexes in the world. At one time, pre-covid there was a gunsmith on site, at a minimum there is a bulletin board with a metric ton of info. If the shooting desk is open, ask for opinions and you'll get plenty (probably more than what you want, lol) The vendor's row is closed, but there maybe enough signage for you to get some contact numbers.

You don't have to be a member to shoot there, no matter what your game-skeet, trap or sporting clays, it's a tremendous venue.

Its real easy to mess the pad up or worse the stock. Just take it to Durys and spend the money.

Itís a piece of cake with a $40 1Ē belt sander from Harbor freight and a set of sanding blocks. This was my first shot at it.

Smart, It is a piece of cake and thanks for the pics.

My main trouble was I don’t have the equipment. I’ve done it by hand on a few occasions and didn’t want to do that again. I even used green tape like you.

I got extremely lucky as I took the white spacer to Bass Pro for giggles and found a limb-saver that matched perfectly, just had to drill a bottom hole.

Good deal. Glad you got it solved.

I didnít have the equipment either ... and I found a cheap solid 1Ē belt sander at Harbor Freight with good reviews. With a coupon it was like $39. Thatís all I was saying above. Glad you got it solved though
