    hey so my dad has given me an old skool browning a-5. i'm not sure what the manufacter date is but from the looks of it, its definately one of the earlier ones id say 40-60s. but my question is: it seems like these might be turning into collectors items soon. so should i shoot it or just get another 12ga for trap n skeet shooting? i dont wanna shoot this thing and ruin whatever potential value it might have.

    shoot it, unless it's in mint condition or some sort of rare grade it's probably not worth a whole lot, there are millions of A-5's.
