I am not sure how well they work, but they do sell "Blueing" pens at most outdoors stores. Look in the gun cleaning supplies area.

Duck hunting can be brutal on guns, so scratches are common.

Bluing is tricky, but you can give it a whirl. Is it a black gun? If so, I've used a Sharpie with surprising results.

Seriously.

Could it be that its not a scratch and its just aluminum that got rubbed on from the boat. If so it'll wear off eventually.

Gun socks help a lot to prevent the scratches, just make sure you take them off after the hunt and oil the gun down.

I thought it would be aluminum from the boat but you can tell it was scratched. Yes my gun is black, How are those blueing pens tricky to use??? Thanks for the help guys

I used a blueing pen last year on my benelli. I had a pretty good sratch from rubbing on a canoe. It worked surprisingly well. I would recommend giving it a shot.

Blueing pens work pretty good. It's not a permanent fix, but you can keep touching it up until the gun isn't new enough for a scratch to bother you anymore.

Thanks guys, I will have to try that. I know having scratches on the gun just gives it character, but like I said before I just got it and was trying to keep it looking nice for the first season.

    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
