Personally, I would, but I refuse to own a gun I can't shoot. That said, isn't a commemorative a collector's item and therefore more valuable in unfired condition?

Has it ever been fired?

Because if it hasn't, I will buy it from you so you DON'T shoot it!

I'd have it checked out by a pro gunsmith.

If it's unfired, you might have a real collector's piece on your hands and it could be worth a ton of cash.

I'll give you $800 for it, cash, right now.

But seriously, have it checked. paperwork can be tracked down or re-created. You can go to the manufacturer and get the whole life story of the weapon.

But it's only worthwhile if you are either A) a collector and it's unfired or B) its personal history.

It's kind of weird that a gun that just sits there and look "purty" can be worth more than a gun that is beat the hell up, holster worn and battle torn with history of proven performance thus earning its position as a real firearm and then would be considered virtually worthless. Personally, I would like to see more pics of those battle weary guns.

And no, I am not advocating guns that are victims of neglect and abuse from irresponsible gun owners.

Oh yeah, that is a really cool gun there.

As others have said, if someone else has already put rounds through it the it probably won't hurt for you to put a few more through. But I would NOT want to be the guy to pop the cherry on that gun.
