    All my commemoratives are NIB (unfired safe-queens). I only keep collector weapons as safe queens. All my non-commemoratives are shot anywhere from occasionally to regularly. Even my first-generation G-17L gets shot once in awhile.

    I HAD but sold 2 Glocks that were kept unfired. First was a very early Pencil Barrel 17.
    Second was a GSSF gun ser. # GSSF002.

    Both are gone now but if I still owned them they would be unfired.

    I have this one. However, I get the feeling it is about to become an everyday shooter.

    I just picked up a G19c, production date is 1/15/1997. Never been fired, in the original tupperware box, even has the warning label still zip tied to the handle. Unfortunately it was ordered with Tru Dot night sites that have died. It also looks like it could be an early 19c production because it shares the same serial numbering as the G20c's. Right now I'm trying to decided whether or not to replace the sites and shoot it, or sell it.

    Not me. I believe that guns are made to be shot.

    I was advised not to shoot the commerorative ones so I took his advice. He appears to be a pretty smart guy here on the forum.

    I have a 20th Anniversary G17 that hasn't been fired. I don't intend on keeping it as a safe queen but since I have so many other Glocks I don't have a 'need' to take it out and shoot it.

    I don't mind safe queens a bit, but have only two among my Glocks. One is a 20th Anniversary G17. The other is a very early (first import) G20 that is non-upgraded and LNIB. :cool:

    I have a safe queen, but it is not a pistol, it is a rifle.
    It's not even close to deserving to be a safe queen, it just is.
    Long ago my father bought a Winchester model 94 carbine in 30-30.
    He never shot it and went off to fight in the war (ww2).
    When he came home he was no longer interested in shooting it and it sat until I was old enough to get it from him. I had no use for a short barrelled 30-30 so it went into my gun safe and that's where it has been ever since.
    I know it's not worth anything but I don't care to shoot it.
    By the way, back then they made them a lot better than they do now. Better wood and better over-all quality compared to the new ones today.

    I have some Alaskan glocks that are nib and some Rugers. Some of the Rugers are 1949 models and are worth more than my glocks.
    I have plenty of other Glocks to shoot why would I shoot the only two I have seen of these.

    Please, let me take that off your hands for a modest fee...and you can go buy another nice new gen 2, 3, or 4 to shoot all you want!

    I aquired one today that will mostly be safe in the safe, not because it's never been fired, but because it's a police model, from my city, and our police aren't too happy with armed citizens in the first place.

    Now add in one who has one of their retired duty pistols, & I'm pretty sure they'd grab it on the flimsiest of excuses. And guns are hard to get back from the PD around here.

    Once I get my G17s & G27 back, this G22 PD will be in the safe, making me smile every time I think about it.

    I have one. A Springfield Armory P9(.40)ported, bought in the early nineties. It is a CZ clone and is a little large in my hands, it has never been fired.
