I wouldn't. 12 gauge shotguns prior to about 1900 were pretty much all for black powder 2-1/2" or 2-5/8" shells, and even if built for 2-3/4" shells it is not made for the pressures common with smokeless loads. The receiver itself is iron, as you can see from the color of the bluing. That was never a high-quality shotgun, so its condition is questionable. I would say no to firing it.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
