Which do you prefer?
I like synthetic for a functional and well-used firearm.
But nothing beats wood furniture for a truly fine firearm that is for show or maybe used rarely.

Mossy & AK: Synthetic......fewer "worries", more trouble free
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
I gotta go synthetic. It's tougher, lighter, and cheaper. Wood stocks are nice, but realistically, there's nothing a wood stock can do that a synthetic one can't. I can appreciate the aesthetic value of wood, though.

Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
Sure you can't beat the functionality of synthetic, but I like my guns like women, purdy. All gals will do the same thing like stocks will, but I only want the good lookin ones in my house. Wood for me.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I think it really depends on the gun, but I prefer wood. Dunno why, but it just feels better. Plus, especially on my hunting guns, the dings and wear it gets along the way seems to add character to it.
Synthetic for me. All mine are shooters, but when I do get the money for something really fine it will of course involve killing a tree!

It depends upon the weapon...
Choices should have allowed 'either'...
Synthetic is fine on some, but nothing looks like a quality wood stock!

Wood for me. Goes well with the steel. My doctor told me I was allergic to synthetic, aluminum alloy, and polymer.
Wood is certainloy a lot better looking. I like Synthetic on my semi auto rifles and tactical shotguns, but on my hunting and carrying guns, wood is the way to go.

synth for zombies, light wood for birds.
War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill
It's hard to explain but there's just something about wood that I really like!
