Re: Buy a gun and not shoot it?
I too shoot anything I buy.
Now I do have a friend who is very OCD and likes to keep his firearms immaculately clean. He has been asking me if I think he should just buy two of everything... that way he has one he can shoot and one to just sit there and look pretty. I told him he needs his head examined!
He recently bought a used Lew Horton 629 revolver and was not happy because this USED revolver ACTUALLY had WEAR! He sent it back to Smith and had it refinished.
"...As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."
