Then there is the heathen crowd like me who will clean, repair and refinish an old rifle to keep it in shooting condition. Great Grandpa shot it and I expect to be able to shoot it too and someday whoever gets it after me, probably my nephew, I expect him to shoot them till they can't be fixed anymore. I don't sell my guns and the sentimental value is still there for me but I feel closer to my dad, grandpa and great grandpa when their guns go bang and I hit the mark with them. Antique guys hate guys like me.
