    Safe queens

    I always thought I would carry any gun that I could, but I recently lucked into a nice looking 3 inch model 36 that is in almost new condition. I put a bid for 300 bucks and forgot about it, and somehow I won! It's got a beautiful deep blue and I'm in love with it. I have no worries about keeping it minty for the collectible value. It just looks so darn nice, I don't want to scuff it.

    Just curious how everybody feels about carrying and safe queening.

    Btw, I'm on my iPad so I can't post pics, but here's my lazy way to show pics.

    It's beautiful, and it's a shooter IMHO.

    A rugged gun like that should be able to shoot for several lifetimes and get better with use. To me, it gets even more beautiful when the blue starts to rub a little from holster wear.

    I don't own too many guns I don't use. I inherited a few but wouldn't personally buy one to not use. They are a tool used to do a job. Each one different. BUT to each his own and if you enjoy collecting them there are THOUSANDS of others who do this. To ask what we think you will be getting a lot of different opinions. This is just my .02

    My one safe queen is a Husqvarna m/1907. It was Dads. It stays in the safe and does not get shot or carried. I will treasure it always.

    Cool gun, but I don't consider that a safe queen from my definition. The thing is what may be a safe queen to me may not be one to you.
    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    I have both trash and treasures around here but none of them are safe queens.

    I like to shoot the stuff I own myself. I have a M1 Garand I shoot when the ammo is available.

    Basically, something that gets put into the safe and not generally used/shot. Such as, a pristine example that's more of a display item than a range/defensive tool.

    I suppose you could say the "safe queening" of something would be elevating a gun to such a status in the stable.

    I wouldnt worry about it allthough its Cherry its your own worry that will drive u crazy if you scuff it up i carry a little pheonix arms hp22a every time i leave the house just to have something, if i feel like i might need something bigger ill strap that on but the pheonix is allways with me going thru the same things i go thru it picked up dings, scratches, dents, and scuffs from dropping it or falling with it on ect. but my main point is there is a reason you wouldnt want to carry something like a 1920 A1 1911 thats because CARRY GUNS GET DIRTY. holster pocket leaving it under the seat i doesnt matter a carry gun wont be cherry for very long

    A hangar queen is a plane that is always in the hangar usually because it needs to be repaired. A safe queen (in gun context) is one that sits in the safe and is never used.

    i like guns and have a few, but none will i not shoot. even my 1890 monk sidelock sxs game gun. really every gun should be shot, like every dog should be hunted. that is their nature and their purpose. i am glad i do not have enough money to buy a gun too good to shoot!
    Six for sure...Uh, I mean Five. Five for sure..

    Sweet! I only have one Safe/Vault Queen. The rest I shoot and maintain as best as I possibly can.
