I couldn't shoot my weapon since it carried a nuclear warhead and was 35' long, but the turbine Power Station running the show had hearing warning stickers all over the back side ... right where I had to store my tools during a countdown. I had a hearing loss on discharge ... but then there was Yes.
Welcome back to building and to the forum, Chris. I'm a believer in 'models were made to be built', so I would have everything die cast in the purple pond getting paint stripped. I can't but something for exorbitant prices just because someone thinks it's oldness or rarity deserves it. Everything I buy I plan to build, though I may never live that long! Most car model kits are far cheaper than what they're charging for armor or even planes.
