Well I reckon I'm an oddity, but of the 47 GECs I currently have in my possession, I'd say 35-40 of them have recieved at least very light use. And every one has hung out in my pocket for at least a days time or two aside from one of the new Pembertons, a serialized Maverick I intend on selling/trading, and a rare, minty Ben Hogan I just cannot bring myself to blemish.
