There is an older thread on Doublegunshop where the posters were amazed how many folks still believe that Damascus barrels are automatically a non-shooter, which just isn't true. One gent was shooting trap with a 122 year old Parker hammer gun and doing well. Again, it MUST be thoroughly checked - the main reason being that these guns were designed for corrosive BP loads and if the gun was not properly maintained, over time, weak spots could occur. If properly maintained, it is very likely they can be shot with little fear.
