So, I have a beautiful mint S&W 17-4 .22 revolver, 6" barrel, blued, looks like it just came from the factory. I was with my dad when he purchased this at a gun show in 1978 I believe it was (I would have been 7 or 8 then). Growing up, we shot it a few times here and there, maybe has 100 rounds through it at most. Well I've recently returned to recreational shooting and I'm wanting to start on some .22 DA revolver shooting. Should I leave this mint gem in the safe and just get a newer .22 to pound at the range? Or should I say to heck with pristine mint condition and use this gun for what it was designed for! I'm sure many of you have had similar situations, give me your thoughts!
