    Just be mindful not to scratch and dent it...and it will maintain very good collector value.
    Buy a gun rug for it...don't holster it and you'll avoid those holster wear/rub marks on the high spots.
    Buy another set of aftermarkert grips for it right away so that you can keep those wood grips perfect.
    And lastly be extra careful of the muzzle and crown when you clean the barrel.
    Then it will stay like new and you can still enjoy shooting it.
    Sounds like excellent advice to me.
    God bless our troops!

    I'm sold! In general, it just goes against the grain to have a great weapon and not shoot it. If it's a decorative piece with fancy engraving and jewel-encrusted stocks, that's one thing, but the handgun of Harry Callahan? It just ain't fittin'.

    Of course, resale value really only matters if you ever resell it. I haven't sold a firearm in over 30 years. I hang onto 'em for dear life.

    It came with a really nice rug, so that's going to help. And I probably wasn't going to carry it IWB anyway. Although that could be an interesting conversation-starter: "Is that a Smith & Wesson Model 29, or are you just glad to see me?"

    Good advice about the grips. And I do so love to accessorize . . .
    Cheers,
    Rod

    That's one of the reasons I love the good gun shows we have here. You just never know what you'll run across. I wasn't even thinking about looking for a Model 29, but serendipity took over. This was a sale by an individual who only had a couple of guns for sale, rather than a dealer. He was primarily there selling ammunition, so it was a nice surprise to find it. And since he didn't have any .44 mag ammo, he threw in 50 rounds of .45 acp. It's nice to do business with folks like that.
    Cheers,
    Rod
