if it is a dipped gun I always hang them in the sun, disassemble, Degrease and give them a coat of PPG matte cleat coat. I have never had to do this on Benelli as It seems they have a very good clear from the factory. Remington, Mossberg and the Browning / Winchesters I have owned do not seem to have a very robust clear over the ink from the factory. I have actually stripped the camo finish from Remington's and Mossberg's with brake cleaner. I use this same cleaner on my Benelli's (and other dipped guns after the PPG clear) and it never bothers the finish at all.
Banging around In the boat is just part of hunting and it adds "beauty marks" to the finish.
These marks are necessary to make a duck gun work properly
