Yes, I shoot collectible guns. With one exception.

  • Yes, I shoot collectible guns. Now with that being said, if the weapon has a high price-point based off it being unfired, and doing show drops it’s value 30-70%, that’s a candidate for trade bait. Some case and a used version of the same weapon.

    What do you have that is “collectible”? And do you shoot it or leave it alone.

      Excellant Marky, like you, I shoot all of my 19th century/20th century weapons! 🙂

      • I have a whole list of older weapons on my “to-buy” list. But many times I have to pass on examples since they are “too pristine”.

        I like shooter grade weapons. Which is why we have the reference collection in the armory.

        We recently sold off a very rare and cherry Mauser since it was too valuable for our needs. Took a fraction of that money, bought the CZ Mauser posted on this site, and folded the difference into another project on the “to-buy” list.

        • In some cases, it’s actually very difficult to even find shooter grade examples of some weapons.

            So true !

  • Daniel, God is my judge

    Put on some fancy grips and get a handtooled holster and fire up the BBQ!

    • Got to be honest. I have never been a hand-tooled leather fan. Dunno why. I barely can stand the Sparks VM-II’s. I’m a Kydex guy.

        You can’t show off a BBQ gun in tupperware. 🙂

        • Too late.

          I don’t get invited to BBQ’s anyway.
