The old shotty is the only gun I kept from the previous collection,beeing a family heirloom it stay's in the family
I got a first generation colt ,never fired ,never dry fired,and in 100% new condition ,and you can say ..hey, no gun is a safe queen in my house ,but the idea of firing that gun would make me go crazy too
