Checking it for operability is a good idea. Look down the barrel, work the action, chamber and un-chamber a few rounds in a safe environment. Perhaps run a bore snake or other cleaning instrument down the bore. Dry fire. Oil the action and bolt.
Go over the metal on the gun and check for rust and wear.
I've asked a few people that shoot a lot more than me and most guns are safe to dry fire.
For prolly less than 20$ or even less, a gunsmith can go over it.
Koning's in Terrell has been really great to me and my family's guns.
It's cheap insurance.
What was the status of the gun when it was put up?
"Don't taze me, bro."
