What's the most important thing to you on your stalking gear ? Durability ?
But to the man who bought a 2.5k blaser in a plastic stock what where your reasons ?
To the chap who buys a beautifully stocked sauer and takes it out onto a Scottish hill - why ?
And to those dedicated few who carry custom sniper rifles in ai stocks around on thier backs - what motivates you !
Personally the beauty and classic look of wood far outweighs the cons of maintaining it . And I'd be the guy who'd buy a beautiful rifle ( if I could afford it ! ) and use it in any conditions . I just love to use beautiful tools !
I'm not for a moment saying there's a right or a wrong , and I'm not interested in a bunfight , I just find it interesting what makes us all choose different setups and how we all justify them to ourselves !
