I bought a buddy of mine a replica black powder navy pistol. Last I heard he still hasn't shot it and its been 15 years.

Wish I bought it for myself... :-(

The concern was not 20-25 years ago when they were first placed there....
The concern was now, when the ammo and handguns were both defective!!!

How would the handgun be defective? Ammo may have issues, but that assumes he placed them there and just let them sit.

Sorry. Just read the op again. I wouldn't be concerned with the handgun, just the ammo.

Clean them.
Check them over.
Shoot the H out of them.

Remember your dad.
Good find.

I would like to see the face of my daughter and maybe the wife, when they start finding guns all over the house when I'm gone....

Shouldn't be difficult to google up some documentation on how to field strip those guns. You can clean and lube them yourself, you're going to have to learn how to do it anyway. Plus you need cleaning supplies anyway for your G19.

Very cool. No need to pay the gun shop to clean them. YouTube videos and do it yourself. I guarantee there is nothing wrong with the ammo either unless that closet went through a flood. What is the story behind that little plastic bag that is shaped just like the pistol? That must be from when the gun was new in box, correct? Very cool!

I would generally agree with you if it was me, but not knowing the OPs background and the guns backgrounds, having them inspected is not a bad idea.

I'm new to handguns, so having an expert look things over is worth the money on these two older guns.....

I have watch the breakown and cleaning of a G19 on YouTube......looks like a piece of cake!!!

For the most part taking guns down for cleaning and putting them back together is a piece of cake, but being that I suspected that you were new to this AND we have no idea if the guns were functional, the gun shop is worth the money. Consider it insurance.

When I was in the closet, I just found feelings I've never experienced before.

Oh....OH! Oh, THAT closet! Well, ummm....good find!

Shot the Llama (22LR) yesterday.....wow was that fun!!! Got lots of compliments at the range....I love the look of the stainless steel.
Have to wait on firing the 380.....no ammo to be found in this area.
