I don't like to own guns that I don't use. My current favorites are a 16ga A-grade Fox and a 16ga Lindner Daly. Both are outstanding upland guns and they are likely to be my primary upland battery for many years.
But I have a couple of gorgeous British 12ga best guns ...
A Westley Richard droplock and a Purdey island lock. I think they are among the most lovely guns ever built and I shoot both of them quite well. But I have not shot them much for at least the last 5 years so now I am wondering if it is time for someone else to enjoy them for a while. No one really owns guns like these, you are just the caretaker for a while, and eventually it is time to let go. Something to ponder over the coming months.
