No.

yup, hasn't hurt my two in all the years it has been mandatory on waterfowl

Sort of like driving your 1940's Ford at interstate speeds. Will do just fine for a while, but eventually something is going to be damaged. Newer guns use harder steel for the barrels and even they get more wear from steel shot than from the old lead shot or newer (more expensive) soft shot.

You can shoot steel out of the shotgun as long as the barrel has not been backbored. The steel shot remain in the wad cup of the shot until it hit the choke at the end of the barrel, so the shot does not actually touch the sides of the barrel. (this applies to all shotgun barrels).

Make Sure your Chokes are not FULL, but Mod or Improved if your going to shoot steel

Can you change the barrel on a revolver from a 3 inch barrel to a 4 inch barrel?

Yes, barrels can be changed. However, unless you have a Dan Wesson that is made to have quick change barrels, this is VERY difficult for the average hobbyist to do without doing serious damage to the revolver. It takes some specialized tools, not just a heavy vise and a pipe wrench. Find a gunsmith in your area, and talk with him.

What is a field shotgun and can I conver one into a trap ShootGun?

With a field shotgun, the target is placed directly behind the bead. On a trap gun, the target is placed above the bead for better visibility. That is the main difference. Also, the comb is elevated on a trap gun and the stock and butt plate are sometimes adjustable on a trap gun. Trap guns are also heavier to reduce damage to the shoulder due to repeated firing. Trap guns sometimes have ported barrels to reduce jumping of the barrel. Any highly shotgun with a wooden stock and replacable barrels can probably be converted into a trap gun. Just buy a trap barrel and replace the barrel. You can also port the barrel or have the stock cut out to make it adjustable. Honestly, no modifications are needed to a field gun, as long as it is a decent gun. I shoot a field gun for trap and I do just fine.

Will bismuth shotgun shells damage an old shotgun?

Bismuth shotgun shells will not damage older shotguns. The only exception are Damascus and twist steel barrels. Bismuth shotshells are made from a patented bismuth alloy which produces a shot which is soft like lead, meaning it moves smoothly through the gun barrel. Instron compression tests indicate that bismuth will deform at 723 lbs. of pressure. This compares favorably to lead, and is lower than any other non-toxic shot, inlcuding steel, tungsten, and tungsten alloys. All of these shots will not compress until pressures well over those needed to avoid damage to a shotgun barrel. That is the reason that the loaders of shotgun shells containing those elements recomend that shooters do not use full chokes when using their products. The one shell which is different is a new load by Hevi-Shot called Classic Doubles. Unfortunately, Classic Doubles fracture before they can deform at around 1000 lbs. of pressure. This means that that Classic Double shot breaks into pieces before it can reach the target. Bismuth shotgun shells will not damage older shotguns.
