    Default Browning 10/71

    I have an never fired Browning 10/71 year N71 lefted for me after my dad passed. Debating if I should sell it or keep it and shoot it? Love the pistol but don't want to keep it and not shoot it and cause the value to drop. Is this peice dated 1971 even a collector piece yet? Thoughts?

    If you were close to your father. Keep it as a memory of him. I would think you will kick yourself in the but later on in life if you sell it. Just my opinion.

    Thank you, for your thoughts on the matter. Sentimental value should always be considered!

    Personally, I'd keep it, unfired.

    So cruel, all guns begs to be shot! But as an future investment...unfired is a must. It's approaching 50 years old. At what point does it become a classic?

    That does not depend entirely upon age. Total number produced figures into the equation. As does condition, demand, etc., etc.

    if it is Sentimental and a keep-sake, then it does not matter if the value goes up or down.......it will never be sold off.....

    my sentimental guns get used.......actually, i feel closer to my daddy, grandpa, and uncles pulling the same trigger they did......

    but that is me....and the guns i ended up with were already used......most of them used hard....

    I hope you bagged a dove on that special day. Memories are forever!
