    Am pretty sure there are more than 3 or 4 of us who appreciate wood. Perhaps we're pack'n it around out in the bush at the moment. Or perhaps we simply feel less compelled than those paint and plastic guys to show it off.

    Here's a small piece of wood that I'm fond of:

    The larger sticks aren't readily available for photos at the moment.

    It's a really crappy pic of a really nice piece of wood. Circassian Walnut on an early Ruger Express, 270WIN.

    I do both. I only used to have wood and despised "plastic" furniture, but I have since come to appreciate plastic for its ruggedness and stability. My wood stocked rifles, pistols and shotguns are kept in good shape but they are working guns and are nothing to write home about.

    i appreciate wood stocks, they are works of art compared to molded plastic pieces of junk. i'd be just too afraid to mess up a nice wood stock and have no problems using my plastic stocks to plow through willows. there is no question that wood stocks look better in my mind i just like a gun i'm not deeply concerned about.

    Most my guns these days wear micarta grips, synthetic stocks, few handguns with stag or sheep, but couldnt help but keep a couple nice pieces of wood around. Here's a couple nice little pieces.


    Grips are micarta, but I like my table wood.

    Took me a spell to snap a couple pics of a Win 70 - 300WM Super Grade I had a good friend re-finish the wood to rubbed oil after dragging it all around Canada....

    Awesome wood, just a very fine example of wood done well.

    Really nice, Smokey, just beautiful!

    Here is my old Sears Mauser, J.C. Higgins brand, with some nice walnut. So nice that I had it repaired when it was fallen on by my friend and busted.

    I just replaced the stock on a buddies 257 Mark V, makes the original look pretty pale.
