Glock 21 Gen 2 In Box- Should I keep?

I just picked this up in a trade. It's a like new Glock 21 Gen 2 in original box with original LEO magazines. I'm not even sure if it's had 100 rounds through it. It's so nice that I'm not sure I want to keep and shoot it. I shoot and carry all of my guns and would hate to ruin something that may be very collectible one day. This is my first post and any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated! Glock Collector's Club

I guess I come from a background if it's collectible don't shoot it. These Glocks are different I guess. If I sold it the next guy would probably shoot the snot of of it!

I sold my Gen 2 21 a few years back...picked up a Gen 3 21 ..traded it, then a Gen 3 21SF , traded it ..and then a Gen 4 21 and sold it...

I missed a bid on a pistol just like yours ..I must say I wish I still had my Gen 2 21....

Definitely shoot it or sell it. I wouldn't call in collectible.

Glocks aren't really collectable, it will never be worth more than a new 21 sells for. IMO

Some sell on gunbroker in the $600s. So I would say they are as much or more than new ones

Glocks are meant to be shot.

Shoot it or sell it. IMO the only Glocks that are really worthwhile from a collectors standpoint are the high-conditioned Gen 1 17s and 17Ls. I'd say that a few of the rarer models (Gen 2 32, RTF2 23C) bring a bit of a premium but the majority of Glocks aren't collectible especially in a more common model like the 21.

Keep it. One day I woke up and realized that most of my guns had become Glocks!
Sure I like others, but you can't beat a Glock, especially the G21!
