Never owned a new shotgun. I have cleaned all of my new handguns and rifles before shooting them though. I would do the same if with a shotty. Heck, I have cleaned all of my guns before shooting them even if they were used!

Just checked my Browning Gold manual, says to clean prior to shooting because of the shipping grease/protectant. Shame on me. Now that I think of it, I might have cleaned one of them.

I always clean and lubricate my guns before I shoot them. Not only does it allow you to inspect the gun, but it allows you to be sure that something did not happen to it during shipment.

I would wipe out and off all the oils you can there from storing and shipping.

Oh, and I think the gun can be fired under water if you take all the oil off but please read the instructions carefully to see if it is OK first.
