Not necessarily.

Think it through, before giving someone advice like that - Barrel inserts certainly are strong enough to contain modern shotshell pressures, as far as the barrel(s) is/are concerned, but offer absolutely NO protection against a worn, cracked/broken action, or one made of weak 100+ year-old steel or cast iron (in some cases).

That's for full-length inserts.

Chamber inserts also offer no protection against the higher pressures of modern ammo DOWNBORE, where older gun's barrel(s) may be very thin.

Bottom line - have ANY old gun checked first by somebody that knows what they're about.
