I have a scoped Remington 700 in .22/250 that I recently picked up that is just begging to get to the range.

a gun that hasn't been fired?  blasphemy!

Only one shotgun I recently got that I haven't had the chance to fire yet.  I should get a chance to shoot it this weekend.

All my guns are shooters.

I've got a Japanesse Type 38 rifle in 6.5mm and a 1869 Swiss Vetellri .41 rimfire rifle that I've never shot.  Then there is that Czech 98 action that isn't a rifle yet.

Only 1, my SBR that's sitting in the vault at SGC awaiting my paperwork, 5 mo and waiting.......

Just one. Polytech AK47S

a m44 but im pretty sure it has been before
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 4:34:10 AM EDT
I only have one in my collection that has never been fired since buying it.  I've fired it several times previous though.  Its a Smith & Wesson .38 Special that I bought from my uncle.  I've put numerous rounds down range through it while it was still his over the years.  However, if I'm going to the range, I'm more likely to grab my Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum than the .38 Special

Mossberg 500 8-shot and a cmmg .22 AR conversion if that counts.  I also have one of those $275 DSA 16" uppers in the mail.

I haven't fired a couple in quite a while because of ammo prices or they're sorta kinda broken and I haven't gotten around to fixing them yet.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 9:16:51 PM EDT
Steyr M95, Arisaka, Mauser C96, 3 of my Enfields, Mosin 91/59, one of my SPAS 12's, and a .25 ACP pocket pistol.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 11:16:18 PM EDT
None that have never been fired, but when it comes to recently fired more than I want to admit, mostly due to lack of ammo.  Now that I am getting my press set up though that should be remedied before too long.  Plus for some reason I just can't get very motivated to go to a public range.  I am due to get a few NIB's from my Dad next time I get up that way when he is in off the road, but it is hard to tell when that will be.  Hell I don't even have all my own stuff drug from PA down here to TN yet let alone the ones he is handing down to me.  For some reason I have a hard time wrapping my had around all the NIB regular guns that you see for sale, I understand if it has collector value or something due to being a limited edition, but I have seen all kinds for sale that are something you could pick up at Wal-mart all day long.  With the pricing it just doesn't seem like a sound investment to me.

1 sks that has never been fired once in its lifetime. it was passed down to me and has never even been to the range once. im changeing this today.
Link Posted: 9/14/2009 11:46:18 PM EDT
More than I would like to admit to. I have my favorites and the rest collect dust
Link Posted: 9/15/2009 3:31:03 PM EDT
I had a Savage 10FP sitting in my gun cabinet for over two years waiting for glass. I didn't want to put a low-end scope on it and then move up to what I wanted in the first place.
Link Posted: 9/15/2009 7:47:33 PM EDT
I always shoot my firearms even if they have never had a round put through them by anyone.

Can't see why no one would use them thats what guns were meant for to be shot.
Link Posted: 9/15/2009 8:51:07 PM EDT

waiting for the damn scope for my rem 700 SPS .308
Then off to the range!!!!!!
Link Posted: 9/16/2009 5:52:55 AM EDT
I've shot all my guns
Link Posted: 9/16/2009 8:13:47 AM EDT
Silly question, without qualifying percentages...Comparing the guy whose collection is five or six guns with someone with 20, 40, 80 or what not...it's all relative. For a fella with less than 10 guns, the likelyhood of having one that he's never shot is far less than the guy with 50 guns.
I have about 80 guns, many of which are antiques I inherited from now passed away family members. MANY of those I have never shot, and never intend to. Mostly because they are either hard to get ammo for, are in questionable condition, or interest me as much as old wall paper. Some of these I only own because I'm the last firearms owning member of the family, and have some stupid ethos which prevents me from selling "family heirlooms".
Of the modern firearms I have, there is only one I haven't shot, and that's my Springfield M1A, and that is only because it has a match barrel, and I'm too cheap to buy good ammo for it.
Other weapons I have that have never been fired (by me) include a WW2 Jap Type 38, and Type 99, a 6.5 Swedish Mauser, a sporterized vz24, two model 73 Winchesters, a model 76 Winchester, a model 85 Winchester....you get the idea.
I have, or have had several firearms that some would cringe to see shot, and have shot them, particularly all matching P08 Lugers, C96 Broomhandles, and P-38's, and have always made a point of not letting the "Don't shoot it, you'll ruin it" phobia get ahold of me. I have never had a serial numbered part break and ruin one...yet...though I know it does happen.
Most all of the weapons I have that I don't shoot, aren't really the guns I think would be fun to shoot. The M1A is the exception, but it's my third M1A I've had, and I shot the bejezus out of the others, and I have a G3 and a FAL I use for .308 fun when I feel the need, so it's more a matter of "I just haven't gotten around to it yet", than a matter of "I don't want to shoot it because it's somehow special".
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 4:23:47 PM EDT
Smith and Wesson M&P 15 MOE
Robinson Armament M96 carbine (haven't shot it since I got it back from ADCO)
Not as bad as I thought.
Link Posted: 9/17/2009 4:33:34 PM EDT
I picked up a couple I haven't shot yet, still on the fence about taking them out.  HK91 and a .308 Galil ARM.  Both came in original boxes with the original packing grease in them and no magazine marks inside the magwells.  Absolutely flawless.  As near as I can tell they've never been shot.

I'll probably break their cherries before too long though.

I got a Winchester model 1897 original WWI trench gun that I've had for about 10 years and never fired. Any of the older 1897's are bad about the stocks cracking at the wrist. Mine isnt cracked, and I want to keep it that way. I've got a bunch of paper 00 buck loads that are original, but low powered compaired to todays buck loads. I dont even want to shoot those in it.

I have a few handguns (some from WWII) that i'll probably never shoot.

All my rifles get shot though.

one  rifle !  wife got me an unfired pristine k98 mauser dated 1937 with all nazi markings intact with matching #s . It is too nice to shoot .

I've got a Springfield 1903  MKI that I took out of the cosmoline when I was 8.  It's never been fired.  I don't expect it will be.  Now, If I had a Pederson bolt for it...

I've got one M-4orgery that hasn't made it to the range yet, since I assembled it, but It's on the schedule.

Link Posted: 9/19/2009 8:41:06 PM EDT
I fire a gun the day I get it...every time.

I don't have anything terribly rare or anything. Everything is in great shape and all but not worth enough cash yet to keep it unfired.
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 9:25:01 PM EDT
I have a Yugoslavian M48A Mauser, all matching serial numbers, pristine bore, great wood, cleaned and ready to shoot, that I haven't shot. I even have some corrosive ammo for it, but I've decided I'm going to pick up some modern 8mm and shoot that. A local Fleet Farm even has the ammo I intend to use. But I haven't gotten around to it yet. I think next time I take my Remington 30-06 ADL to the range I'll also take the Mauser and shoot a box. I'm curious how they compare. The ADL is iron sighted with no scope. So the comparison would be interesting.

Link Posted: 9/20/2009 5:48:46 AM EDT
Just one - a G17, but it's my second G17 and I have another one that I shoot.
