I have a nice Dickinson side by side shotgun with a wood butt plate. Would like to protect it when standing on the ground. Don't want to alter the stock. Duct tape ? Suggestions ? Thanks. Slip on will add 3/4" which I don't want.

That's the problem with no skeleton plate or replaceable pad.

1. Carry a rag or other soft item to put under it each time you put it in a rack.
2. Store barrel down, but make sure not to dent the stock on the upper part of a rack (wrap with rag)
3. Add a sacrificial skeleton plate.

Most days in the field, I’ll just toss my hat down, and put the gun in the hat. If it’s really crappy, the rag idea works well. I always carry a couple anyway.

I store my guns horizontally, nice if you have space for that.

Wood butt plate or checkered butt?

If a wood butt plate maybe take it off and put it in a drawer. And fit a plastic plate.

I had it taken off and a sporting recoil pad installed without changing any dimensions of the stock and it can be put back on and no one would be the wiser. My shoulder does Know though and appreciates the change.

I would suggest a rubber slip-on that you've cut the rearmost recoil pad portion off, leaving a thin rubber against the checkered butt.

I expect you could get some sort of swede slip-on made. You could carry it in your pocket. But I expect the most satisfactory thing to do will be to just hunt it like it is and be careful. And you can get the checkering re-cut if it gets damaged. My friend has been shooting and hunting a Perazzi with a checkered butt for 25 years or more now and it is still just fine. I keep telling him to saw it off and put on a pad, but somehow he does not think so.
