You've got a great collection Pete. I might be more into military rifles if I could actually make it to the nearest range. That's why I mainly concentrate on handguns. I can make to my local indoor range two or three times a month.

Yes; too many to name. It is not that I do not intend or wish to fire them. It is just some are bought for the collection and when I get around to firing them I may. The only problem is that I far more often go to the range with those weapons that I regularly carry and hence those others go unfired once again.

I've shot at least a few rounds through pretty much everything, though I admit there are some that I basically never bring out again afterwards, for various reasons. That said, I'm always bothered when I see "shooters" online trying to judge or act superior to pure collectors who don't shoot as much or keep safe queens. We all have our own ways of enjoying the hobby.

Been collecting guns for close to twenty years now. Used to buy a lot, 12 or more per year at the start, now only when I really see something interesting that I want. I do intend to shoot everything, but life intervenes. Also got a closet full of plastic model kits I need to build, once I figure out where to put them once built.

I've got a Henry AR-7, with two extra barrels from AR-7.com, and a beautiful Walther PPQ M2 .22lr in the 5" barrel model, with the fiber-optic front sight. Neither has seen a round yet. Nebraska is an open carry frontier state, but try to find a public gun range...

I currently have three PPS M2s, one of them is sitting in the safe unfired.

How do "collectors" know if their guns are actually in working condition, if never fired? I usually assume that an older pistol won't work until I pull that trigger. Or is it all about looks, and not function?

Oh yes, I only buy my collector pieces based on how shiny they are. Loud noises frighten me.

That's what I thought. Thanks for the insightful answer.
