I have 50 points in the repair skill but the repair option on the Pip-Boy "Y" in inventory is grayed out. What skill do you need to be able to repair your own weapons?

In order to repair something, you have to have the spare parts to replace it. For example, if you want to repair the 10mm Pistol, you are going to need another 10mm Pistol to repair it with. What I do is pick up all weapon drops and then immediately use those extra guns to repair the ones I'm using.

I'm not sure if there is a way to repair weapons with objects other than duplicates, as I am not that far in the game.

Like he said, only with the same duplicate weapons can you repair the ones you currently have, and the higher your repair skill, the more you can repair your weapon to increase its damage.

The only other way to repair stuff without duplicates is to spend money and have someone else do it for you.
