In my opinion it's all about personal preference and taste!
If somebody likes stocks made of classic walnut tree (I do) there is nothing to complain about. Right treated matured wooden stocks that are perfectly bedded, doesn't matter with epoxy or (in addition) with pillars, give platforms for good shooters. Of course, if someone doesnít like to give continuously maintenance to his gun and stock a wooden one is obsolete. Too much humidity or dryness over a long time kills every wooden stock, thatís for sure. Hunting under harsh conditions on the other side will demand composite stocks.
