    Save that "first round / born on" Casing?

    Never thought twice about it until I was at the Nation's Gun Show this weekend in the Ole Dominion, and I saw a sticker on some of the cases "No shell casing included per MD, NY Law"

    Apparently some states require the first shell casing fired, in a factory-sealed envelope. I suppose it's of value to keep if you're ever wanting to re-sell the firearm in the future, as the envelopes are date stamped. This would be rough proof of the firearm's age.

    Do you see any value in keeping the shell casing? This is assuming you don't live in one of the socialist states (MD, NY) where it's required anyway...
    I want to keep our founding fathers' visions and rights for this country pure. I implore you to do the same.

    Heck no, put it in an envelope and send it off to a friend in NYC to have them drop it near a crime scene.

    Meh. The only one I've ever gotten with a firearm got tossed in the appropriate fired brass bucket to be reloaded along with the rest.

    I can just hear some collector in a 100 years say complete with original box but missing test casing.

    Dang why did those guys throw away those casing didn't they know that this was going to be a rare only 500 made or left. It would be worth so much more if it was complete.

    Take them, put them in a metal grinder and turn them into dust. The only reason they are there is for a "ballistics" database for 2 states. MD and NY. It's their way of tracking those evil gun owners because we all know they commit all those crimes with legally purchased new firearms.

    It's registration plain and simple.
