Disrespect? I originally bought the thing to shoot. How is deciding wether or not to shoot it disrespecting it?
I think this is a valid question.
If I just randomly bought a gun for carry and didn't realize it's real value, I'd be a bit shocked after nailing a deal like that as well.
Personally, I don't like owning safe queens. If I buy it, I plan to shoot the frick out of it.
My advice to you - flip that gun and sell it. You can hold on to it as long as you want or sell it not for 2-3x it's original value. I bet you would easily get that much cash.
But besides that, good find!! You scored one hell of a deal.
