I already checked them, they're unloaded. The small one is a Winchester .22 caliber rifle, and the big one is a Sears And Roebuck 12 gauge bolt-action shotgun sold under the J.C. Higgins brand. They're both active, but that's a moot point considering the ammo that's in our house is at least 50 years old. As for the poor quality of the pictures, I only have the camera built into my laptop to take pictures right now, and it's really bad. Anything else you'd like to know about the guns or anything else, feel free to ask!
