    Shooting new third gen SAA

    What are the feelings regarding shooting NIB 3 gen SAA’s? I have several used SAAs i do shoot but also several NIB i am questioning and wondering how others feel. One new is a 44-40 and another a .44 sp., both nickel. i have never fired either cartridge in any gun.

    I got one last summer and took it right out and shot it with black powder loads. It started raining before I got done. Scrubbed it out in kitchen sink.

    It will be 100 years before there is any significant return on investment in a NIB SAA therefore, enjoy it now. Additionally, the way this country is going, it will be illegal to own way before it has any added value.

    Shoot it and enjoy it. How else are you gonna know how it feels and performs. The key is to clean your gun after EVERY range trip no matter how many rounds you put down range. Thats how you keep her looking NIB.

    Shoot it and enjoy, clean and lube after shooting and it will look good for years. The joy of shooting a SAA is a real thing.

    They're just feelings, but I recently picked up a NIB 3rd Generation locally for about half what it's worth. So my plan is to double my money on it, and put the money in the bank.

    IMHO newer Colt SA's appreciate very slowly, especially if they've been fired. So my modus operandi is to buy 1st Generation Colt's which cost about the same as a really nice new Colt, yet appreciate much more quickly. I can shoot the older Colt's all I want and doing so will have no effect on their value since practically all of them have already been fired and seen use. Buy, shoot and enjoy, sell at a profit, repeat.

    If you have several NIB, plus some you have already shot, not a lot of reason to shoot the NIB ones... Unless you just want to. They may not appreciate much, but there’s no reason to hurt the value if you have others to shoot.

    I have two 3rd gen. 44 specials that are my favorite shooters and I have two safe queen 44 specials that are NIB and they are going to stay that way. Maybe my kids will have to sort it out. My guns - my money, so it's my choice.
