Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Synthetic or Wood stocks

A properly finished and bedded wood stock will not exhibit any of the alleged "horror stories" that we always hear about.

Men have been using blued walnut rifles in places like the NW coast and Alaska for a heck of a long time before stainless and tupperware stocks came along.
+1 here!!!!!!!!

I Love the looks and feel of my Rifles with the wood stocks,I usually take good care of them and watch how I carry and handle them...I've had several of my good Rifles out in good and bad weather,when I get back home or to Camp I dry them off and put them in their holder/carrying case.I have a Remington Modle 742 Semi-Automatic 30-06 Rifle that it over 35 years still looks very nice and only has a small amount of scrapes and dings on it.I may consider buying a Synthetic Stock Rifle if I get a Predator Varmint gun that will be out in mostly bad weather...but then the idea of a CZ-USA American in a .204 with the wood stock is so much more appealing? love the beauty of a well done walnut stock!
