Hell yes. I bought a NIB 3rd gen. Colt SAA buntline in the late 80’s for $500. Hauled that thing to several gun shows before I sold or traded it for a what I thought was a good deal. Never fired it. Later regretted not shooting it. That issue was solved about 10 years ago when I found another one with no box and shot. At 58, it sure seems I am going to more and more funerals these days. Life really is too short to not enjoy what a fine gun was made to do.
