How To Attach Chart to Rubber Stock

I would like to attach a small laminated ballistics chart to the side of the Hogue overmolded rubber stock on my 10/22. I tried duct tape which didn't hold at all. I don't want to use any glue that will be difficult to remove in the future. Any suggestions?

Clear packaging tape wrapped continuously around the stock from one end of the chart to the other.

I can't help you with the stock, but I just write (in fine print) my basic ballistics info on blue painter's tape and stick that to the bell on the scope. Easy to peel off if you want to change the info. I also have some pink painter's tape, but I felt better with the blue.

I chuckled at that one.


I have always wanted to have a chart on my AR15's stock and so I googled it. My search turned this up...kind of a neat idea. Now if some company would just market cap covers that you could load with your rifle's dope...

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

I didn't think to just wrap tape all the way around the stock so it sticks to itself, duh. That seems to work well.
