Ignore that advice. Find a different smith.
There is really only one major downside to a good laminate, as far as I know and have read about
They are heavy.
They are heavier than most all other stocks. The wood is compressed and the resin weights a ton.
To me, they are a quick way to make a good looking heavy gun, that shoots well, at a decent price. But I like wood, even if its been basterdized....
