    Beautiful! Are they deactivated or live? If live, do you shoot them?!

    Great weapons.
    I do not shoot collectable weapons. Every time you shoot one you are just wearing it out a little bit.
    Personal preference.

    SteveR,

    I agree, I will not shoot collectable guns...be they WWII or U.S. Civil War.
    The German guns with serial number markings on different parts ....like a nice collectable Luger....I would never shoot.
    There are guns that you shoot ...and there some that you don't.

    These guns I would not ever shoot.
    A luger with two matching magazines...you don't shoot.

    I do not subscribe to this idea.I believe they were made for a reason. Just like someone who keeps their '69 chevy ss Chevelle in the garage for 30 years! It's meant to be driven , the guns are meant to be shot. IMO

    Dean,

    I think I understand what you mean.
    I used to shoot the 58 Remington revolver with my Father shown below back in the 60s-70s.
    I cringe when I think about it now.

    I guess I became more of a collector than a shooter.
    My collection is more collector oriented than shooter oriented.
    That is why I will not shoot certain pieces.

    I have many guns where I don't have the same concerns.
    I could shoot them all day and not care.
    Different strokes I guess.

    David



    I would shoot this cyq code P.38 all day and not be concerned.
