Almost all of my guns I have purchased were purchased "new" or gifted to me from family. My brother in-law is wanted to sell my dad a Ruger Blackhawk 45. This gun has only been shot once since since 1990 I believe he said. Given that I am new to buying "used" guns I would like to shoot it or have a gunsmith look at it before it goes to my dad. I want to make sure the gun is functioning properly. Is this legitimate request or is there another process? Thanks for the feedback.
