I'm not going to tell you to go out and shoot it, but in general, these are fairly well-made guns and if they have been given reasonable care are still safe to use. You should have an experienced gunsmith inspect any old gun before you use it. Even if the 'smith gives it his blessing, I wouldn't use any magnum loads or steel shot. FYI, for the value, if it is a double from that patent date, and IF it is in good shape and OK'd by your gunsmith, it would retail for $200-$250 in most parts of the country. Small (28 Ga and .410) bores may bring more.

Yes. It would be almost impossible to shoot skeet with anything else besides a shotgun because clays are small, fast-moving targets.
