To each their own.

If I want to shoot a P-38, I have a post-war P1 that serves just fine. I don't have to shoot that AC 42 with the 77 year old bakelite grips and old springs. I get the experience of shooting that pattern of service pistol without subjecting a war trophy to the shock and recoil.

If other guys want to shoot old collectable guns, some fraction of which will unfortunately get damaged, then maybe it will make mine more valuable.

It's your gun. Use it in the manner you decide because that's all that matters. Anyone else's opinion on how they use theirs is irrelevant in regard to how you use your own. Do corporations or museums look for internet opinions on how they should use their collections?

BTW, it's probably the recoil area that will develop a crack more easily than the high wood. Carbines WERE a military gun for the US. Now they're a Curio & Relic.
