Re: Should I shoot It?
If the rifle has been shot before, I would go ahead and shoot it. The only collectable that you should not shoot if you wish to maintain maximum value, is one that is original, as new, and "unfired". Keeping it in good shape and shooting it should not change it's value if it's been shot before.
