As the thread title says. When do you get one when is not worth it? I have some older Colt revolvers and semi-autos and have always wondered about the history behind them. Are they NIB? No, and all have seen honest use and have not been abused and I still shoot them. Each one spoke to me in a different way when I found them at gun shops, pawn shops and gun shows. As we have all said before, if only the gun could talk.
