Turns out he was shooting modern shells in it. I found some old Federal rounds that he had. Regardless, I'm going to have a gun smith check it out first.

I love old guns.
If/when you shoot it, your sweat melds with your Grandpa's.
I love the nostalgia of knowing who held the firearm, the life and times of it's history.

I know what you mean. I just wish I could have been older to go shooting with my grandfather while he was around.
