It your a collector and its all original and in pristine condition and you want to preserve the gun for its future value, put it in the safe and forget about it. If you like to use what you own carry it and shoot it.
No one can answer tis question but you, good luck in your decision.
Couldn't have said it better. I don't see anything wrong with safe queens. If you're a collector and want to preserve their future value, by all means keep it tucked away. That is a fine weapon that will grow in value. I myself have some safe queens, (old Colts and such) that I do not shoot. However, if you have that itch to use it for CC, then don't let it hold you back. If you can swing it, by another R9 and carry it. I don't see anything wrong with preserving a fine weapon such as that. Years from now, you can know that you still have one of the finest pieces Rohrbaugh ever put out, and you have it in prime condition.
Or you can send it to me, and I'll keep it in my safe for you so you don't have to worry about it. You can come to Oklahoma and see it whenever you'd like!! Just throwing that out there..
