ok....whatever you think....i'm relatively young.... i grew up in the age of cool and black and tacticool....and all of that is good....i have an AR and i really like it far better than i ever thought i would. BUT....... i like "REAL" guns made of wood and steel. i think i'll always prefer it. while i accept poly guns like glocks, AR's, etc as fine guns....i'll never prefer them over a good solid gun made of all steel and wood. and the "weight" issue is a non-issue to me. out hunting or toting the gun around...i get it....but i honestly like a real gun with good weight to it....it feels stronger and more substantial....regardless of the truth that polymers are probably far more durable and lighter than most wood stocks. aesthetics, feel, and function.....when i pick up a nice heavy military or lever gun....i know its for me....a big heavy clunky all steel pitol will always win out over a mostly plastic one in my world...it just feels like a "real" gun to me...that is the best i can explain it. not there there isn't room for both....but this is my preference overall... what do y'all think? any feel the same or are more of you more into lighter, poly guns? perhaps you really like both equally? i realize both have their advantages, i'm just talking preference here.
