Default Browning model1903 30-06 inheritance

I inherited this rifle and checked the serial number to get more info on this gun.
Turns out it was made in 1927. Cosmetically the rifle is still in great condition with no visible rusting. My question is, as I am gun newbie, I want to take this to a gunsmith to have this gun checked for safety so I can take it out and start learning more about targeting, gun, safety and this a bad idea for the rifles sake?

As long as it checks out form the gunsmith it should be fine really. I love those rifles.

With a firearm approaching it's 100th birthday, even a good quality gun, such as your Browning, would do well to have a competent smith give it a once over. Parts DO wear, ya know......

Thanks for the info. Do you think it may decrease
Value if I start firing it? It's a pretty rare gun since
It's a browning
