People with WWI and WWII guns, do you shoot often or case them?

I really like shooting my WWI 1917 Luger all numbers matching and my WWII Ithaca 1911. I am more concerned with wear on them then my WWII 1939 matching K98. Do you guys just case them or shoot them? I know with the 1917 Luger....once the matching part breaks...good luck. Some people shoot them with replacement parts on them in case they break...and save the matching number parts.

Just wanted some opinions.

Also, looking for a generic presentation case for a WWII 1911. You would think you could find some for around $75 or cheaper.....any ideas?

If I had some cool c&r stuff, I think I would rather shoot them with replacement parts and save the numbers matching parts separate to avoid damaging them. Then again I'm just starting to explore the c&r realm. Only thing I have like that is a '41 m98/30 which are everywhere so no real monetary value there.

For the case, maybe you could find a small mom and pop cabinet maker and have them make something custom for you? Probably wouldn't cost that much.

Forget swapping parts, stuff gets lost that way.

Buy a russian capture or a mixmaster to shoot. I have shootables and I have guns that dont get shot.
