First of all it has been a long time since I have visited the TFF and I have missed it. Now on to my story :
My wife and I went to a local gun show today. The goal of this visit was for me to pick up either an AK-47, HK USP, SIG P226, or some other fun firearm goody as it has been too long and my guns need a new friend.
We meet some other couples there each with their own shopping agenda and set about to do some shopping. As we were making the rounds my wife kept stopping and staring longly as a Colt SAA :
After about the third time she stopped to admire the firearm I asked her if she really wanted it. She said it looked amazing but we were not there for her and she thought it was too expensive anyway. First off I think adding a Colt to our collection is a good thing, secondly, anytime the wife takes an interest in a particular firearm I think it is good.
We asked the sales guy to take a closer look and once she handled it I knew it was over. We already have a Ruger Vaquero that she loves to shoot and she is a Revolver Girl through and through so of course we had to buy it right?
Any objections my wife had were quickly silenced by our other friends who all thought it was an excellent purchase. As we were filling out paper work the lady asked us: "Are you going to shoot this?"
I quickly replied: "I don't buy a gun unless I am going to shoot it."
This is a NIB Colt SAA, is there any reason to not fire it? I certainly understand that Colts can be collector's items, but seriously why own a gun that you don't shoot?
