inherited some old guns
I wonder how typical this is....
My dad died, and I got his guns.
The truth is, I can't imagine them being worth anything. An old hammerless Ivers Johnson .32 short revolver and two 12 gauge shotguns. One a damascus double barrel and the other is a "modified" and "less old" single. The old damasus has a broken stock that was screwed back together and the .32 is a functioning weapon. A local "gunsmith" looked at it and said it was ok to shoot, and I did confirm that shooting a few rounds through it.
I really should put pics up... and pull the damascus gun out and see if I can see any manufacturer markings. Other than NOT shooting the damascus gun... anyone have any ideas of what I can do with it other than put it on display?
