AgCl precipitate uses

I mix silver nitrate with HCL to form AgCl.  Can I safely decompose this?  Can I store the precipitate and turn it back to silver nitrate months later?

Re: AgCl precipitate uses

Yes. You can keep AgCl in dark. When you want AgNO3 any time, firstly with a active metal (like zinc or iron) you'll get Ag metal, then with HNO3, you can get AgNO3.
