    Smile

    I said 3 to 5, but it may be a couple more.

    I've got 2 CMP Carbines and 2 CMP 03A3's that still need exercise. then I read the comment about the Chilean someone else hasn't fired and I remembered my 1895 Chilean Carbine and the 1891/59 Rooskie Carbine, both of which are languishing in the safe.

    Oops, there might be a pistol as well. The little 1934 Beretta in .32 ACP, the Brevettata as I recall, that hasn't been used either.

    I guess I need to take some different guns out on our next Thursday range and cigar night.
    Regards,

    WE

    Are you kidding!? Guns are for shooting.

    I have one.
    In 1969 I was in the Navy. I came in on weekend liberty and sold my motorcycle to a friend who paid by check. It was Saturday afternoon and the banks were closed. I had to be back on base Monday morning.
    I took the check to a local hardware/gunshop. The owner was hemming and hawing about the large check.
    My father loved Winchester lever guns. I saw a new Buffalo Bill commemoritive on the rack. "If you cash my check, I'll buy that rifle" I told the owner. He agreed, and I gave him a little over $125 for the rifle.
    I went home and gave the rifle to my dad, he was delighted. He declared: "This rifle will never be shot". He wanted to preserve it's collector value.
    I lost dad a year later. The rifle? It's still in my safe, unfired.
    Best,
    Mike

    The only ones I own that have never been shot are a matched set of Teddy Roosevelt Winchester 94's that were my 1st birthday present. I doubt that they ever will be fired. Other wise I buy em to shoot em. if I don't like the way they shoot down the road they go.

    I also only have one rifle that I have not shot. It is a Weatherby Vangard in 7mm Rem mag that I bought last year before christmas. I bought it in case I ever get to go on a ELk hunt (but not here in TN), and that I bought it at Walley Word on sale for $350, marked down from I believe 450. I just couldnt pass up the deal. It is not the fancey weatherby but the one with the tan stock with black spider webb. My wife will never send me Christmas shopping again.

    More than 70. I bought a few when I had a C&R FFL a decade ago. Ran out of money and time to get the cosmoline off and shoot them.

    Just got to thinking and I do have 3 of my own that I can't remember the last time I shot them and then there are 2-3 for the kids that haven't been shot yet and then there is the wife's 2 that she hasn't shot yet and there just might be another in there some place.
    Need to get more range time in and do some relaxing.

    Currently I have more than 5 I have not shot ... they are all Garands or M1 Carbines ... I was on a quest to acquire at least one of each of the carbine manufactures and one of each year of production and manufacture for the Garands ... starting at 1941 of course! -- earlier years are way to expensive for me ...

    Now that the quest is almost complete, they will all get some range time in the future ..

    Now, I do have a couple that have not been fired in years ... Off the top of my head there are several 22LR and one 22Mag that I can not remember the last time they were fired along with a couple M1917s ... of well!! Maybe I need to go digging in the safe and see exactly what I need to bring back to life ...

    If you count Encore barrels I've got 5 not shot but that will change as soon as I can get to the range without sweating all over the equipment. 96 here in VA again today. They are 4 MLs and 1 CF. 2 are totally new stuff and 3 are new to me. 3 complete guns and the 2 Encore barrels to go on my exist frame. 10 ga

    I shoot most of mine straightaway, just teh ones that require moulds, etc, etc seem to hit a delay. Current;y suffering from a torn rotator cuff on my shooting shoulder. Consequently, I have a few 300 Win Mags and a few 338WMs that need some loading and a good shoulder.

    But, as I said before if you have a whole mess of guns (mine is in 3 figures, you can be doiing and awful lot of shooting and not getting around them all and have a guy that has a pistol, a rifle and a shotgun tutt tutting at you for only shooting 87 of your 100+ guns

    SWMBO read this over my shoulder and remarked "TOO D@^^ MANY." I guess she may be right cause there are several that haven't seen daylight in quite a while. I think I'll remedy that this weekend.

    I never intended to accumulate so many rifles (main part of armoury), pistols and shotguns and always had a few 22s, a 223, a 30/06, and an 870 shotgun. After they confiscated my 870 years ago, most shooters considered it the thin edge of the wedge and that we would eventually lose all of out guns. I was determined to buy any gun that I fancied because I thought that if things got tougher, I'd have a better chance of hanging onto guns that I already owned than trying to convince some offical that I should have one. I have accumulated a lot og guns, but bought guns that I had always fancied and intended to try them and move them on once I had had a good play with them. I thought that from the guns I fancied, I'd end up with a moderate armoury that would suit me and serve me well.

    I didn't want to be sitting on the rocker on the porch in years to come saying, 'I wish I had'a tried one of those, I wonder what there like?' Thats why I have so many guns at the ,moment, bit of a log jam, havign trouble getting the loading and shooting done, but I'm doing my best!

    Two, a recently aquired 1898 Springfield sporter in 30-40 Krag that I need to find brass for, and an 8mm Lebel my dad gave me that's been sitting in the safe for about 20 years I guess.
