Default Camo or walnut?

im thinking about getting a Mossberg 930 semiauto shotgun for waterfowl hunting. I cant decide if i want it to be walnut or waterfowl camo. I like them both but im not sure if the camo is worth the extra money. anyone have any opinions on this?

I agree the game will not know the difference, but being in a duck blind, lots of moisture I would opt for the camo reason is the camo is synthetic which will not expand like wood will when wet

ditto. a duck hunter's gun take a beating be it in a blind, boat, bumping off decoys walking in and out of a hunting area, etc. My advice is spend the extra couple bucks and get the camo.

while your correct i don't think paying for camo really has much to do with actually concealing your firearm. to me its just a option so we're not all shooting the exact same guns and some alternative material to add a little protection.
the world would be a pretty boring place if all we had was black and walnut everything

Thumbs up Synthetic

I was glad when they came out with synthetic stocks. I beat up a lot of wood in a duck and goose blind. Black synthetic or camo is the way to go.

Blued barrels and walnut stocks or my favorite but synthetic is the way to go when it comes to waterfowl IMO.
