New Browning BBR
Recently luck was on my side and I found a BRAND NEW still in box, 1979 Browning BBR 30-06. Never used, never fired. Came out of someones collection and I got it for a price I could not refuse. It is a very nice rifle.
I bought this rifle and really don't have a practical use for it, however I could not pass it up.
I can't decide whether its smarter to keep it in the box and let it be a collectable, or mount a scope on it and have fun with it. I'd love to shoot it and maybe take it on a gentle hunt now and again, but part of me feels like that would be ruining a special thing.
What do you guys think? What would you do?
