Now the questions:
1-Do they have any benefit or added value if they are not shot?
2-If you planned on not shooting them, would you clean them? They are still in packing grease...
Your opinion is appreciated.
this is stricty my opinion, but even though they are sequential, unless they are commeratives or limited runs of some sort, they are just a pair of pistols that happen to have SN's that sequential.
down the road, if they were sold as a pair, it might up the value to the right person to a degree.
one of the Mods here, JonM bought a pair of new Ruger Vaqueros that were sequential in SN's. he shoots them.
so IMO, clean them, oil them and enjoy shooting them.
