I have a mossberg 500 and after hunting today I notice that only in the places I hold the gun the wood is a cloudy white any help on this? What caused it and what will fix it?

In my experience, clouding most likely is moisture got under the finish. The how part needs to be identified and resolved. My dad's browning sxs had to be sent back to the factory to be refinished under warrenty due to clouding. Take a good look to see if there is any way moisture is leaking through a crack in the finish, through an end cap, butt plate, any unfinished non-sealed area, ect. Let us know what you find.

I saw a small chip in the finish but very small I rubbed it down with alcahol and it disappeared easily then I rubbed in some oil to seal it back up.
