Safe Queens

How does a gun become a safe queen?

I know I didn't set out to own a single one, but I seem to have acquired a few.

I simply don't shoot several of the guns in there.

I did have to have them though.

At least none of them are guns that I will not shoot because I fear I am affecting their value.

Grampa's old revolvers I don't shoot because I am not entirely convinced it's still safe to do so.  Their value is entirely sentimental rather than intrinsic.  This is on top of them being unpleasant to shoot as well.

Both of the rifle ranges I like are more than an hour's haul from here, so it's kind of a pain to get in some 50 or 100 yard trigger time.
