Maybe do something like the holster library. Try one before you buy it? I would be willing to pay shipping both ways, if I could "borrow" a few of your 1911's.

Let me know what works best for you? Adoption? You could then qualify for a tax write off. Library, I can borrow from?

I will do whichever works best for you?

Dad.....?????
It looks like you're building a nice collection of your own.

Here is a picture of the new one I just ordered. I had to see if Colt was still able to do the high polish blue. No one has ever been able to duplicate it. It is one of the tasteful special editions done by Talo.

Never to pretty to shoot. I would not use it to go take a week long course, but I will shoot it. I have confidence in the gun to make it through the class, but I have other 1911's with a more durable finish I would take.

I even take my engraved guns and shoot them. Some of the people where I shoot think I am crazy because of the guns I actually shoot.

The only guns I do not shoot on a regular basis are the ones that belong to my father. They are nothing fancy, but could never be replaced, if damaged, or lost. These guns are shot once or twice a year. September 5, marks one year since my father passed away. I will take his guns to the range over the weekend and shoot them.

I could not imagine buying a gun, and not shooting it. The only reason not to shoot a gun is because of the loss in value. I am a shooter who collects gun, I do not collect guns just to have them, or for an investment. I will never sell most of these guns, so resale means nothing to me.

I am starting to try and collect some of the WW II Colt's. The only reason I would not shoot one of them is if it was original, and not safe to shoot it.

My FFL also has an indoor shooting range. I usually pick up a gun, use one of their offices to break it down, inspect, clean, and oil the gun, and then shoot it. I usually like to shot 100 - 200 rounds through it, then I take it home and clean it. This one will be no exception.

Good for you.

I, too, can't see owning a firearm I wouldn't shoot. And, like you, I have some that were passed to me by my Grandpa that are somewhat valuable, but are occasionally shot.

I can't think of a greater honor for your Father's guns than to shoot them.
