Uses for old socks

by Kenny Presnell
(Tallahassee, FL)

What's an old sock good for? If you're like me, you might have saved a pile of clean old socks with holes in the toes. Here are some uses I have found.

Place it over the barrel of your gun when it's stored in the off season.

If you've got your gun standing up-right, you can put a sock over the scope. If you've lost those cumbersome scope covers that you always take off and can't remember where you put them or which one fits which scope, use a sock as a scope cover.

They work dandy as a glove when handling your firearms as you move the ones in the front out of the way to get to the one in the back because that's the one for the current season. It keeps those rusty fingerprint marks off the barrell.

You can use them as an oil rag for that final wipe down.

And if you have an old leaning camping trailer, you can put one over a brick for a dandy door stop.
