When I got into firearms a couple of years ago it started with a Walnut stocked bolt .22lr. Every firearm I seem to buy are classic in style. My rifles have all wood stocks with blued metal, the same goes with my shotguns. I have old mechanical designs like lever guns and bolt guns, single shot shotguns, and revolvers. The market over the years has become more and more tactical. Most guns now come with synthetic stocks, pic rails, and with semi auto capabilities. When I shot my first AR I said this was easy to shoot and fun but not as fun as getting to unload with a crisp lever of a lever gun, or manipulate the sweet Mauser bolt action. The new guns have their place for CC and home defense, but if I had to go to the range I would pick a classic. My question here is who prefers the look and feeling of classic 20th and 19th century firearms over the new stuff today, and why?
