The only gun I ever owned that was "too nice to use" was one I won in a raffle. It was a very nice very expensive rifle. Unfortunately it was in a caliber I have no interest in. I didn't even shoot it as it had no open sights on it and I had no interest in scoping it. I sold it soon after I got it and bought two guns I did want and enjoy shooting. I'm sure it is a safe queen for the fellow that bought it. Had it been in a caliber I wanted it would have been shot.
