Okay. Mebbe I fall into the "can't teach an old dog new tricks" category, but what is the facination with plastic these days? Plastic guns (okay, composite or polymer); plastic holster (kydex); plastic stocks (synthetic); plastic gunbelts (balistic nylon) and whatever. I find them to be rather ugly and . . . cold. Someone explain to me how you could get the same feelilng wiping off a synthetic stocked rifle with 409 or whatever as you do oiling a nice piece of walnut? That the appearance of a plastic gun will be as pleasing as a nicely blued or case hardened steel? There is something soothing in using saddle soap and mink oil on a gunbelt. What's the attraction? Some will say they are more "pratical" -- that they are easier to take care of, that they hold up better in bad conditions, etc. Okay, I'll give you that. But cleaning and oiling my guns and equipment is part of my shooting ritual -- I enjoy it. Does convenience make up for not being able to appreciate the . . . well, the organic qualities of steel and leather, vs. plastic?
