I've got a 3rd generation Colt SAA NIB. I've been told that if I shoot it, it will greatly decreae it's value. If I get a little holster wear, it will also decrease the value. I've been fighting within myself on what to do. I'm leaning toward "shootin & totin" If I wanted one just to look at & show, there are plenty of pictures of SAA on the Internet. I believe that it can be cleaned/oiled after a shooting session and if it rides in a Bianchi suede lined 1L Lawman holster, the wear on the bluing/cch will be limited. If it were yours, what would you do?
