Henry Goldenboy collectible?

Hello everyone, I’ve been reading the forum here for awhile and have finally decided to create an account and make a post because I have a question for you all.

When I was 12, I won a Henry Goldenboy in .22LR through a raffle. My dad suggested that I don’t shoot it so that someday it would be worth lots of money. Now it’s about 13 years later and I would kind of like to shoot it. So, is there any truth to that? Are unfired guns worth that much more? Or should I just take it out and shoot it?

Some guns have interest to collectors and if unfired bring more money. I seriously doubt this is one of them. Shoot it.

I would shoot it. Nice guns but really not a collector piece.

I’m going to shoot it next time I’m out. Thanks.

Not really a pricey collectible if you can still buy a new one 13 years later......and you can.

Cross-posting in more than one forum is a no-no.
