I used to think safe queens were ok, but not any more. They are NOT like art IMHO, because locked in a box in a safe is useless. If you had enough room and could display them securely, maybe, but I only ever knew one person in my life that had the money/room to be able to do that. Might as well buy your Rembrandt and wrap it up and stick it in the basement vault. So much for the "art" idea.I have many safe queens. I also have many shooters. I read often, folks not understanding, or even disagreeing with us that have guns we'll never shoot, or never shoot again.
It's like art. Some needs to be preserved. Many examples of firearms, both scarce and/or vintage, need to be set aside for the future. I see it as a responsibility of mine to do so.
Simultaneously, I wont begrudge a person for shooting the crap out of any or all of his guns. They are his to do whatever he sees fit.
