Henry Golden Boy - RMEF comemorative

Hello fellow gun nuts,

I was cleaning guns last night and in the back of the safe I "re-discovered" a Henry GoldenBoy .22 LR that I won at an Elk FOundation Banquet many years ago. The gun has the RMEF logo laser engraved on the receiver.

I was thinking about shooting the thing, then it dawned on me that I had forgotten about it and if I just stuck it back in the safe, I may forget about it again. Is there any chance at all that, if stuck away, this gun may be worth anything in the future?

If you all answer "No", then I'm shooting the heck out of it this weekend. If you all answer "Yes", it gets stuck back in the safe and forgotten!

What say you all?

Only if you're an Elk.....

JMO, but it's prolly be worth more after buying a replacement receiver cover from Henry.

Funny, I read the title as REMF, and was trying to figure out why anyone would want to commemorate them.
