I once sold a S&W 1006 and bought two good guns with the proceeds. No regrets. It became a collector's item over the time I owned it, and at that point it was no longer fun to own. I worried about scratching it and lowering the value, or, god forbid, some piece breaks that I couldn't replace. To me, firearms or tools, or tools with some history, but I don't want something that I just dust off and stare at - like Cameron's father's Ferrari. If I were rich and money was no object - different story, but until then, I don't want anything I am afraid to dent or scratch. Life is too short for headaches from worrying over replaceable material objects.
