    I bought that damn SAIGA 12 and promised myself I would wait for its value to go up and then dump it.

    But after having it for a few hours I have an intense desire to shoot it.

    Anyone have a gun thats unfired?? How long has it been?

    Why would the value go up? did they stop producing them?

    Remington 870 AE Magnum. I havent had the need to shoot it. I think when it gets cooler, I will take it out to the range.

    I have had an ar15 lower for like a year now that I've never shot. I keep telling myself that magpul really means it and the ubr stock will be out in a couple weeks like they say.

    I have a .25 that I never shot and it doesn't look like its ever been shot before me. I have a Black powder pistol i never shot too. Oh also have a sporterized mauser i picked up awhile back thats missing a couple parts haven't repaired it yet but I plan on shooting it. I'll shoot the pistola too when i live somewhere else law here says if you fire it it has to go on your permit.

    I've never shot my Brazilian M954. Simply because if a part broke, I could never find a replacement part period. Plus it uses late war German bolts etc and I dont trust'em.

    I also have a Enfield No.4 Mk 1(t) that appears to have never been shot. I know we never have.

    I have a Yugo SKS I haven't shot, mainly because it still has cosmoline in it and I have other SKS's so I'm in no hurry to clean it.

    rem870 that my in-laws gave me as an xmas present. I have the S12 though, so I never have a reason to shoot it unless I go bird hunting and I haven't been bird hunting yet.

    Yup, I have a K-31 that I haven't shot yet. Mostly cause I can't afford ammo :wtc:

    Yep, my Garand and my 1903. I bought my Sig P220 and my G19 back in January and didn't shoot them until last month :o

    I have yet to fire the AR I bought in May. The range is right by the lake (both ~25 min drive) and if I drive that far I usually feel like going out on my boat instead of shooting. The indoor pistol range is around the corner, and the sporting clays range is about 10 minutes away, so I shoot those a lot more often. :hs:

    I have not shot the old 700 my father gave me. I don't have an adequate range to try it out and I am not going to be "that guy" who brings a scoped .270 to an indoor 50 yard range.

    I also have a .32 rimfire Remington Model 4 I have not shot, simply because I like the patina and I don't want to mess it up. I could actually buy Navy Arms ammo for it but I like it on the wall.

    I have a trapdoor I haven't shot, also a 1894 special edition from the 60's.

    Everything else has been shot at least once. Something like a Saiga, I don't think you'll lose a lot of resale value with some gentle use and cleaning. Unless you're a dealer, you're going to have a bear reselling it for NIB prices, even if it is NIB.
