Default Won't Shoot?

Are there any guns, in any of your collections that you WILL NOT fire? I don't mean because of a safety issue, but because it would bring down value,its never been fired etc.. I like to shoot, and think it would be a blast to shoot those old guns.

I only have one that I won't shoot. Mainly because it has never been fired, and if I fire it the value would be affected.

It is my 1937 Colt Ace .22lr. Mint, unfired.

It is my considered opinion that you are not hundred percent honest about not shooting it, you surely lost it somewhere in a safe and have only a picture of it on your pc.

I have been sorely tempted a couple of times. When I took it out yesterday for the pic I posted "over there" I thought the slide stop had become discolored!!! Turns out it was just lube residue from being in the silicone sack. Whew. If it had been some actual damage, I would shoot it.

BTW, I posted my S&W M-15 for you. More to follow.

I take it you didn't see the (j/k) under the pic?

In reality, I do have a Mark 1 rifle (far left), three magazine pouches, a bolt pouch, and a couple of boxes of original ammunition. No device though. I don't have your kind of money to throw around.

All I have are shooters...

DANG!!! I was SO hoping you had one. I've never believed they were ALL destroyed. So somehwere, there is an attic with a box full of weird stuff in it that the owner can't identify.

Nice rifles, too!

I actually did see one listed for sale several years ago. Asking price was 60K.
Just a little bit out of my league....
