Real ivory, from the looks of it!
Fingers, that would rip my heart out to have something like that and not be able to shoot it.

Resale value be damned. I'd shoot that thing.

Resale value means nothing to me and a safe queen is as useless as teats on a boar hog. I have a S&W 1926 3rd model. I got it back in the 80's with 98% finish or better. It was a collector piece even back then. If I could go back and keep it as it was when I got it because it would be worth more. nah, no way. I had a lot of fun with it. As it sits today.

Cars, guns, watches, etc. I'd rather use the equity out of them. They're made to be used. And by me using them, it makes the other ones that are saved and collected more valuable.
