    Not interested in how many firearms you have--- that's none of my beeswax... Just curious if you have any you don' t shoot.

    How many guns in your collection have you 'yet to' shoot? (But intend to shoot...)

    I bought a Mosin M44 rifle a few months ago but I haven't taken it out yet. Just haven't been able to yet...

    I don't collect for collection's sake... So I have no safe queens

    How about you? Do you intend to shoot all your guns?

    I have firearms I bought 36-37 or so years ago that still are unfired. Then I have pistols I shoot 16,000 rds. a year through.

    I have 5-6 yet to be fired but that’s OK. Would rather have them and not need (to shoot)’em than to want them but not have them. I’m a semi amateur collector and look at firearms as a hobby. They should hold some value over the years and aren’t a perishable investment.

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    I have some vintage guns that don't get out much but all have been fired by me. I have newer guns that don't get out much and when I think of that it actually inhibits the acquisition of new guns. Outside of the vintage guns, I don't believe in safe queens...I feel that if I have them they should be exercised. I could be at the point of having too many guns and too little time.

    The times that the most firearms get out for a breath of fresh air are when we have an organized shoot and I load up the Durango with gunz and ammo. We need to do that more.

    I have 3 that are still covered in cosmoline.
    I have an additional 7 firearms that have had less than 50 rounds through them. I have had them all for at least 10 years.

    I don't have a lot of guns and there are no safe queens amongst them.

    I have four old shotguns I’ve inherited, that date back to around 1900 to the 1930s and 40s. They are very well worn and used. Never shot any of them, though I believe them to be shootable. Probably never will shoot them. Other than those, I shoot all my guns every chance I get.

    I have a couple I don't shoot very often and one I just don't shoot. The two I don't shoot often were my father-in-law's before he passed which technically makes them my wife's but I don't believe she's ever shot either one. One is a chrome-plated Raven Arms .25. Yeah - don't laugh too hard. I do have a a couple of hundred rounds through it and it's never failed to go bang. Go figure.

    The other is an FIE 6-shot gold-tone revolver in .22lr/.22 Mag. I have both cylinders. The front sight needs filed down as it shoots quite low but it works well.

    I just snagged those pics off the internet but it is what mine look like. Anyway, the one I don't shoot is an SKS in 7.62x39. I have way too much money in it but I just don't care for it. I keep threatening to put it up on Armslist but I've just been too lazy. lol I purchased it already bubba'ed in a Tapco stock but I have all the furniture to put it back to 'original' or as original as it can be without the matching numbers. The bolt and receiver and whatnot all match but the furniture wouldn't.

    If I want to shoot a rifle I have an AR and Ruger .22. Also a Semi-auto shotgun which is pretty awesome.
    If you want the money out of politics take the power out of government.
