What brand do you guys use to mark your stuff to make sure it doesn't move?

don't know what brand they are, but the gray ones from the Wal-Mart crafts department have worked well for me.

I still have a decent supply of "Testors" model paint pens from way back when I did the model plane/car thing. I do not know if you can still get them or not. They don't carry models around here anywhere anymore. Best bet would be a hobby shop of some sort. Touch up pens like the ones they carry at Auto parts places should work too.

ETA: The touch up pen idea is a bad idea.

Don't remember the brand that Uncle Sam has in the inventory. Only thing that I mark are my windage and elevation knobs on my CH. That way I know where my zero is when I make changes.

I wouldn't recommend these. I just bought one to touch up a bunch of tiny rock chips on my truck and the paint can really flow after you do one dot. It seems to gather up on the ball point and form a decent drop just waiting to drip <––- I hope that makes sense.

I used to build model rockets and also used Testors products, I think those pens would work much better as the point is finer and flow is a little more controllable.

Yea that makes sense. I thought they were more like the Testors.
