What opinions do you have regarding thumbholes . I will be using them for hunting. Not targets.
Boyds have them at fantastic prices atm.
Thumb hole stocks like everything else have there place that they are very good, bench shooting,
offhand and stand hunting.
They can be troublesome in other situations like very cold weather where gloves have to be worn
and on quick shots where positioning of the trigger hand takes longer than a pistol grip stock.
I have never seen a thumb hole stock on a dangerous game rifle but I'm sure there are a few.
They are great for varmint hunting .
A vertical pistol grip (Tactical)stock positions the hand close to the same but is easier to acquire
a good shooting position.
Just some of the + and -
