Inherited some guns

My grandpa is going into a retirement home so he's been getting rid of some things. He gave me a .22 revolver, 2 .22 rifles and a double barrel 12 ga. If I post some pics, can someone tell me a little about them? I've done some "googling" about them but am not really sure what I'm looking at/have. Not wanting to sell them, just curious about them.

.22 ammo is crazy insanely hard to come by nowadays...

That 12ga shotgun is gonna treat you great. What brand is it?

As for ammo, there was maybe 20 shells total. These guns have been in the closet for years

It's a nice collection of guns. The 12 g double gun is cool. Not the kind of value as the 24 ... Or was it 21, whichever one you don't have, but those are worth thousands and out of reach of many for a gun to shoot. Clean that one up and oil it and take it to a trap range with some light target loads and have some fun. The pistol is
Not something I've shot but revolvers are fun to shoot. My favorite in my collection is a dan wesson revolver, nothing fancy but with several barrels. A revolver with a nice light, smooth, target trigger is super satisfying.

I had a marlin like yours up until last week when I traded it. They have quality barrels that are really accurate. I had too many 22's and wanted something else.

Give them a good cleaning and light oiling and like I said - go shoot them! Not sure if you have kids but if so, go get a safe. If you've never had experience with guns you can get some local safety instruction at a range. Perhaps you're a pro just looking for info on new to you guns, but in case you're new to firearms, some basic instruction is key.

Congrats, these are some great, utilitarian firearms. I'd buy a Winchester 12 g like yours if it came around, the other side by side model they made is far out of reach. Other quality side by sides are thousands, and so many more are tens of thousands.
