Safe Queens

Discussion in 'The Powder Keg' started by The_Vigilante, May 18, 2008.

  1. How many of you have "Safe Queen" stashed away that have never been fired or lightly fired? What are your "Safe Queens" and why? I currently have two (2) "Safe Queens": Nickle-plated (never been fired) 4" Colt Diamondback .38 Special currently located in my safe deposit box and a 50th Anniversary model of the Dirty Harry 629 .44 Magnum which is sitting in my safe at home.

    No "safe queens" just "pistols in reserve"

    All working guns, in great condition and been fired some but been replaced for carry duty by others (SIG replaced baby glock, Bulldog, and warthog for the time being). Love the Taurus 4" BBL Stainless .357, but it's role as car pistol has been supplanted by a Judge for the time being as well.

    Everything I have was fired at least a fair amount. I want to know that they work and that I am proficient with them.

    Really, I just HAVE to shoot 'em.

    Don't own any safe queen's, all of my guns go hunting, and to the range, on a regular basis.

    Just two at the moment. A Winchester .22 bolt action, tubular magazine I inherited from my Dad, that I've never liked and will probably trade in against a CETME I have on layaway; and my granddad's 2 3/4" chamber side by side 12-gauge. It still shoots, but given it was made in the 1920s I'm a little leery of firing it with modern factory loads.
     
  12. NIB: NHM-91 AK, Henry Golden Boy .22, Benneli SBE, Benneli Franchi Raptor Ultra, and others.

    Never fired: 1895 Chileno Mauser rebore to 7.62 (not safe to fire), 1888 Manlichier/Mauser Commission Rifle.
