I love wood stocked guns. But, I did put synthetic stocks on my 1100. It can get a little wet in the canoe.

I'm conservative to the point that I haven't hunted deer with a scoped rifle in 11 years. I like the challenge of getting close and using iron sights on a blue steel wood stocked rifle.

Talking

I too love blue steel revolvers. Single action armys turn me to jelly, I can't seem to pass one by. I too love to dress em up in different grips to make them all purty.

I have blued steel and Walnut, I have polymer frames and S/S models. I like all of them and the polymer if we like it or not are the trend of the future. There is nothing better looking then a blued gun with a nice piece of walnut on it.Like mentioned the Glock's are ugly but they work and do what they were designed to do. Most of my hunting rifles are Ruger M-77's All Weathers. They hold up allot better then the purdy blued /walnut models.

I guess it all depends on what fits your needs.

Wood and steel for me, too. I'm 64, and grew up in the era of classic cowboy movies. I've owned plastic pistols, a Springfield XDm, a Ruger SR9, and still have a Glock, but I don't like it much. I don't mind the new transfer bar system on Rugers, or stainless or nickel, and have a bunch of 'em. I guess a more accurate statement for me would be that I don't much care for plastic.

First time I saw the innards of a Glock was about 25 years ago, and I thought it looked like a cap pistol. Haven't changed my mind yet, but I think I'll shoot mine for a while just to see what all the fuss is about.

Single-action revolver.

Blue steel.

Walnut.

Curmudgeon.

I'm a DA revolver guy.

Most of my revolvers stay factory stock, I like the look of a fixed sight 4" revolver with wood grips.

If I do decide to "work over" one of my revolvers, I will usually buy another copy and leave that one bone stock. I recently worked a S&W 10-14 and have had my dealer order me another one that I plan to leave alone.

I'm pretty conservative for the most part with guns, I have a 44magnum Redhawk in stainless. All my other revolvers are blue, as are my are Mk 2's and my no 1. Not exactly a Glock fan but I can tolerate them, I prefer a pistol with a hammer. My no 1 is easily the prettiest gun I own.

Gotta love it when a six-year-old thread comes back to life.

And my position hasn't changed.

Still a curmudgeon.
