    If I had the money and I would buy it, I also would shoot it. I know that using a collectable item makes it lose its value, but in this case I don't think its value in the future will be that much decreased unless it is shot till it's worn out. Since I have other pistols that get shot, that one would get used but not abused and it would still have great value 20 or 30 years from now.

Same with baseball cards or anything like that.
    Personally, I would buy two. Use one and keep one.

    Oh, for sure, just like the comic book example i was talking about. I am not against that at all. In fact, I think it is the best way to go with something like this, keep and preserve one and play with the other.

    My only hang up would be the autograph on the slide, don't like it, I think it's weird. Jeff Cooper isn't but i'm not into asking for anyones autograph or having one on a slide of a 1911 to use. A hand shake works for me if I am meeting someone famous or whatever.
