Agreed. I never shot my Rem 700 30-06; maybe 200rd in 20 years. So I traded it for a better bear gun, a S. Blackhawk.i will say this, i don't collect or keep firearms for them to be closet queens or just to say that i own a particular firearm. if a gun doesn't function, perform as desired, or doesn't meet my expectations, it is soon gone and replaced. everything i own gets shot at some time or another, some just get shot more than others.
