To me, the beauty of Renaissance is the ease with which it can be buffed out. That's it. If I worked in a museum, that's why I would use and recommend it.

I use it when putting guns into the safe. For actual bad weather paste wax.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

Pretty close to my sentiments, too.

Renaissance for oldies in the safe, Johnsons Floor wax for the shooters, Mothers for the Magnum Hemi and when fettling Coleman lantern founts (painted and nickel)-never wax the vents!.

I still have a can of the Johnsons wax from when I lived in AK and used it regularly on both my rifles and shotguns. The can must be 35 years old or more. I lived in western AK and unless it was winter, seemed to be always very wet and rainy. Oh yeah, I did use on my guns on a number of deer hunting trips to Kodiak, Afognak, in Cold Bay chasing waterfowl, Prince William Sound bear hunting and various other salt water environments and I never did get any rust, that I recall.

Cameron, Kodiak Island is where I started using paste wax, Hunting the Raspberry Island elk! Nothing says rust like an open skiff running up on a herd of Sitka deer on a beach in Uganik Bay!

Hey all, just thought I'd add my 2c worth.

I use Ren wax on my stocks when the weather is nice with no moisture in the forecast. Works great and gives a wonderful shine. One thing about this wax is, don't let it dry too hard. If you do, I've found it takes a lot of effort to buff it out. Much easier to let it dry for a couple minutes then buff.

I've used Johnson's wax, didn't care for i. It always left a cloudy haze and wore off to easy.

What I use now for foul weather or if I want that extra protection is: Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Plus wax. This stuff wears like iron, gives a great shine and protects the stock against light scratches. I like it.

I don't wax my bbls or any of the metal parts of my guns. I just use a good quality oil like Eezox.

Like I said, just my 2c worth.

Hope all of you and yours have a very Happy Independence Day!
