    Show us your safe queens

    Most of us have those guns that don't get much attention for one reason or another so lets dust them off and share a few photos. I'll start it off, they don't have to be rare or pretty.

    Star Firestar M43 9mm circa 1991:
    Only 200 rounds through this one, not bad for a 20 year old gun!


    S&W Performance Center Comp Carry .44 Magnum:
    Under 100 rounds through this, its not really a range gun just something I take out when I'm camping to partner up with the 12 gauge.

    I have lots of guns, both trash and treasures, but none are safe queens. I simply couldn't own a gun I wouldn't use.

    Cool

    I'm with TWO GUNS and bmcgilvray about "no safe queens" however your Star and S&W are really nice. My avatar could be considered a safe queen to a degree but it does get carried and shot once in a blue moon.

    Agreed, don't get me wrong i've used these plenty I just don't get them out to shoot for fun. Picture doesn't show it too well but that Firestar has years of holster wear on it and the .44 gets carried in the woods but its no fun to shoot at all with full power loads. Feel free to post pictures of your "trash" I'm they aren't hi points!

    Agree with the others, I dont have a safe queen, the Monarchy ended, and all my guns are working class.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    No, they aren't Highpoints but they are all still used and loved even though they are handguns that aren't often seen in shops or at shows these days. The raggy Colt Single Action Army does see holster time even though it is over a hundred years old. The others see careful use on the target range or for fun plinking sessions out on our place; being carefully brought out of a case, used, cleaned, and RIG'ed to preserve them and put back.

    Colt Single Action Army 4 3/4-inch .38-40 from 1905



    Colt New Service U. S. military issue Model 1909 .45 Colt, 1910 production

    Most of the Model 1909 contract revolvers ended up seeing hard service in the Philippines. Not many were produced. Not many survived and most that did look beat up and brown. It may be seen that it was a partly cloudy day when the photo was taken. No Colt Python made has a finish as fine as a pre-World War One Colt product.



    Colt Woodsman .22 automatic obtained from the original owner who purchased it new in 1928.



    Smith & Wesson Model of 1926 .44 Special from 1932



    Smith & Wesson Military & Police .38 Special from 1917



    Smith & Wesson Model of 1903 Hand Ejector .32 S&W Long from 1917



    FN High-Power. Post-war production from the late 1940s. This one was as new, still in the box with factory-provided cleaning rod when it was obtained. Of course it was immediately taken out and shot. It has been carried on occasion.
