A QUESTION - HONEST ANSWERS NOW...

AJ's post brings up a soul-searching question.

"How many guys admit to having "SAFE-QUEENS" <font color="green"> </font> in their firearms accumulations."

I guess its too late to claim that I don't!

BTW: She doesn't like to be called Queen to her face. She prefer's that I call her 'precious'.

I wish I did! That would definetly require less cleaning, less loading, and less tinkering but I'm afraid all mine get used-a lot! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

As has been said in the past, "We are seperated by a common language".
Please could you explain what you mean by "SAFE-QUEENS" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: A QUESTION - HONEST ANSWERS NOW...

Ah! i have just figured what you meant.
rifles that stay in your gun cabinet.

I can honestly say no, a condition of our firearms licences here in the UK, is that we use all our rifles a certain number times each year, or risk losing the authority to posess that rifle.

Ian.

Ian,
I am impressed with the shooting you fellows enjoy considering the hoops you must have to go through.

By the way, I am waiting for Dave King's answer - although he turns so many rifles over in a year that the question might not apply [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

LOL, LOL, LOL

CHOKE... LOL again

Ian.. I knew from the start of the thread that you'd get around to wondering about my collection. I do a lot of pass-through on rifles, in fact my collection (Dave's previously owned custom rifles) is spread all over the U.S. of A..

I don't have a Safe Queen. I have some rifles (my favorites) that are so beaten looking, finish work off, scopes dinged that they might not be taken if I left them on the side of the road. (But they all shoot little tiny groups and have known data.) (The only reason I have a safe is so that Cheryl will be a little confused about how many I really do have!)

To clarify (in case someone comes and looks in my safe) I do have my son's guns in there and they do get pretty lonely.


But just to make you Safe Queen owners feel a little more kindred toward me... I will admit that I do have a few bullets that I haven't shot yet!!
