Should I do or should I don't

Hello fellow lead slingers. I'm new to the forum and new to shooting. I just picked up a Colt Forty Four Wilie Clapp SA. Do I shoot it and enjoy it or do I park it in the safe unfired, unhandled etc. It would be interesting to hear the varying opinions out there. Happy New Year to all.

More than likely has limited to nonexistant collector value. Shoot it.

Looks like I'm shooting her in the springtime when the outdoor range opens up.

Guns are meant to be shot . . . women are meant to be looked at . . shoot it . . shoot it a lot and enjoy it!

Welcome by the way . . . you'll have fun here!
