    We've got a Springfield 1884 Trapdoor that has been in our family for decades. It was passed down to us from my mom's grandfather. It appears to be in excellent condition, but we don't know when the last time it was shot. As far as I know, now one in our family has ever actually used it.

    I'd love to get the proper ammo for this old rifle and shoot it, but I want to have it checked out first to make sure it's in shooting condition. Can anyone recommend a gunsmith in the Tampa area that has experience with older rifles such as this? Thanks!
