I shoot and use every piece of weaponry I own. I am not a firearm collector. Everyone of mine has a use, some more than others, but they all get used regularly and every caliber I have has at least one backup firearm of that same caliber, rifle or handgun.

I was planning on putting it in the white elephant giveaway?

Do you want it BB? It's blue and has our school logo on the back.
I've seen your pictures. If it doesn't fit you, it surely won't fit me.

Okie dokie.

BTW, I've never had a gun I didn't shoot on a regular basis. I do have a couple of knives that haven't seen much use though.

I bought my S&W 29-2 as an investment and fully intended to 'safe' it. That was until I decided to just run a cylinder or two of factory loads, oops, too much fun and sacrilegious to hide such a work of engineering and art behind that fire resistance door! I count my return on investment in fun and smiles for now.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The only "safe queens" I have are those that don't get to the range as much as the others.
Lately, it seems like all of them.
The only ones I don't shoot, are those with a price tag to move.

All of my guns get shot. Some get shot more then others but they all get used. I believe in using a machine for what it was built to do. I don't abuse them, in fact I'm rather anal about them but they do get used. If you've got one that is super rare, I understand not shooting it but I don't own any. I look at them like collector cars. I have a 67 Mustang Fastback that really isn't that rare so I'm building it the way I want to. Now if it was a 68 Convertible with a 428 CJ, it would all original and see almost no road time(they made 16).
