Tru-Oil would more likely be mostly boiled linseed oil and some drying agents. Shellac is used more as a friction type of polish. Sometime it is mixed with waxes and or a little boiled linseed oil. I am not sure how the tru-oil would really bond to the vaseline...??? Maybe the solvents in the BLO mix with the vaseline or lift it from the pad ?? I haven't used this method but I am sure that it would work. Once it dries it probably is a little slippery and will mount much better than a fresh rubber pad will.

Put on the furst coat of varnish and it took almost 6-days to dry. Put on a secong coat today and I think I put on too much. I guess I'll find out in a couple of days. If temps were not enough to keep me out of the woods I have been fighting a virus all week that has had me on my butt so all I can do is look forward to getting out with this gun.

Boys I'm telling you, my method is non-slip, other than the dog might give it a sniff or two after the bacon grease stage.

I was as virtuously given as a gentleman need to be; virtuous enough; swore little; diced not above seven times a week; went to a bawdy-house once in a quarter--of an hour; paid money that I borrowed, three of four times; lived well and in good compass: and now I live out of all order, out of all compass.
