    "Zombie green" stock by Hogue.
    I just threw up in my mouth, and a part of my soul died.

    If you build it, They Will Come!

    Unfortunately, the current market is catering to Zombie Hunters and Video Game players who know no better.

    I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to stay in business?

    They may call that "zombie green". I've always called that color "caterpiller gut green".

    Speaking of zombies...I saw that "Walking Dead" will be back on AMC tv channel in my area.

    I'm thinking the Zombie craze has just about run it's course, and it's time to go back to classic again.

    If you wait long enough, history WILL repeat itself.

    Over and over again!

    At my age, there is nothing at all COOL about a pea-soup / vomit green stock on a Ruger, or especially a S&W.

    They have grip in their Zombie line for pistols too.

    I'm thinking about getting a Zombie Green grip sleeve for my IDPA gun...competition guns should be like hot rods YMMV

    ^^ Haha, maybe if the barrel, action, and triggerguard on that 10/22 were volquartsen anodized purple....

    Green stock? ugly. Green stock and dayglo anodizing? hmmm. still ugly, but it somehow wins in my book....
    hard to steal, anyways, lol

    I don't care what it looks like; if it brings more folks into shooting, so much the better.

    I don't know... of all the cool reasons to take up the pastime, if what gets a person into shooting is a vomitus stock, then I'm not so sure I want them around the sport.

    but live and let live.

    I appreciate steel and wood. But we have a lot of new shooters young, and teens that this would appeal to as an entry level "race" gun. Some people just like the louder the better. No accounting for taste. No problem with them liking it by me.

    Doesn't bother me one bit. To each their own.

    If you don't like it, don't buy it!

    Otherwise, stay out of the business of the people that do buy it.

    Lots of kids like the Zombie stuff. Lots of kids like 10/22's...Sounds like good marketing to me.

    Heh!

    I'll give it this...it makes it extremely difficult to steal and blend in with the background at the same time.

    :D

    Put it in the back of your closet next to the bell bottoms. Bring them out in 20 years.

    Green plastic differs little from black plastic to me.

    I like it. In fact, I think the Zombie craze is a hoot. The movie Zombieland is a classic! Anything that pushes the Vampire craze aside is a winner in my book. Vegetarian vampires that sparkle don't sell guns, zombies do.
