My dad just gave me my great grandfathers shotgun - it's an Iver Johnson 28 gauge, single barrel top break. He's never shot it - but he had a gunsmith grease it up a few years back. I'm wondering what I should do to:
1) Get it checked out
2) Keep it maintained, and
3) Shoot it once in awhile, without ripping it up.
I figure it was manufactured between 1906 and 1917 - any advice for a relatively ignorant guy? I want to make it look nice (wood and metal - what to use, what not to use) and shoot (what to put through it, what not to put through it).
