So I bought an M9 Navy Commemorative pistol, Used, Like New, Never Fired. Comes with everything the manufacturer shipped. My questions is, should I shoot it? I have seen a lot of different trains of thought on this and varying opinions. I did pay a premium to own this pistol and I do plan to keep it. However, if the "value" would be diminished by 50% by just putting rounds through it maybe I pick up a used one and put this in a display case.

I am attaching a stock image I found for solid representation.

TIA

People have different trains of thought.
Some think all guns should be shot, on the other hand, I feel not all need to be......

If you are concerned about the monetary value then you shouldn't shoot it. If you're going to keep it "forever" then let'r rip tater chip!

This.

That being said, I believe every gun should be fired. If they were made just to look at then they would have diamonds and hang on a woman.

To each his own. I don't buy them to put them up in a case.

Maybe someday I will get into collecting, but right now I enjoy my range time.
