I have come to realize how much I dislike black synthetic stocks; two of my shotguns have them. It doesn’t bother me when I’m using them. But when I look at them hanging in the rack next to the wood ones, I think, “Man those are ugly”. I have even thought of painting them. I could get rid of them, but they are good guns. I guess it’s like driving a Ford and you’re a Chevy man.

I am about over my "pretty wood" days. I have had some really nice wood stocked guns in the past that I have managed to ding up through normal usage.
Today,my gun ownership is directed towards the guns that I will actually use. NOTHING PRETTY . . . NOTHING COLLECTABLE. Just good shooters,good hunters,and perfect (for me) carry weapons.
That's it. --- SAWMAN

I was raised on wooden stocked firearms. My dad always had them. All showed wear and a few scuffs and scratches. But, a walnut oiled finish is a charmer. He left me 2 A5's and 2 BAR's. I still get to shoot them and hunt a couple of times a year with them.
