Is there any real cause for concern or am I just a guy obsessing about his guns?
She was wrong.
Hell, my dad's guns have spent their entire lives leaned up in corners with the weight of the gun leaning on the barrel for 40+ years and they'll shoot MOA right now. Don't sweat it.
Perhaps the location was more active then realized !

But since you asked, the centrifugal force cause by the earths rotation will offset any gravitational pull on firearms, thus negating the gravitational bending effect your mother in law was referring to. No need to thank me.
But doesn't that depend on latitude and on what wall (N or S or in between) on which you lean the rifle?
... many of these even at indoor ranges.
But I never used the "bent barrel" excuse.
(An exception was a .243 barrel which apparently had been straightened at the factory and would walk shots to the upper left as it warmed up. But that was consistent over several shooters and it shot to POA when cold just fine.)
The old boy's gun probably just got knocked over and one of the sights got pushed out of line.
Muons weigh much less
