Would it bother you to pick up your most valuable/collectable gun if the S did HTF?

I shoot all my old guns from the pre-1900 and early 1900's. I ain't waiting for SHTF. They were made to shoot. I've hunted with guns made in the 1880's.

Actually my two most collectible guns are my SHTF guns!! My M1903- I love the .30-06 round and the '03 is just so accurate (will be replaced when I find MY M1 ) and the Medusa (obvious reasons.. )

I completely agree with you guys, I would use anything I could get to defend my family, I was just stating how it would suck to be beating around with a collectible, but I'd do it in a heartbeat if I had to.

I have guns that I don't carry because I would not want them damaged or lost by LEO evidence idiots "if" I was forced to use my CCW.

However, SHTF is different. If it gets that bad I doubt any Cop will be showing up to investigate and trying to disarm me after social collapse would not be a wise decision.

I don't have any "collectable" firearms, and wouldn't want to know if any of mine became collectable. I like tools that work and are worked. I got this great-looking knife for Christmas one year; i have never carried it due to the price and fancy finish. Today, i just received the cheaper version that i will feel comfortable carrying; i like it much more than the one that i assume is still in the back of the gunsafe collecting dust.

lol, that Medusa is probably one of the best guns you couls possibly get for SHTF. It's hard NOT to find ammo that will work in it.
I hope to get one some day.

There are working guns and fun guns. If I had to make a quick departure, I would abandon all of my fun guns, all of my antique firearms, all of my historical firearms and grab my $250.00 Romanian AK with the cheap dura-bake finish and ten 30 round mags.

If I had a gun that I didn't shoot it would be because I was waiting on parts. If I own it, I shoot it. I even make BP cartridges when needed.
