If we’re talking home defense, the Benelli M4 Tactical shotgun is the obvious choice. Nine roughly .35 caliber lead pellets whizzing along at around 1200 feet per second puts Big Ben deep into “stop the threat” territory. That said, Grizzly Custom Guns’ heavily breathed-on Marlin 1894C ain’t just whistlin’ Dixie. That bad boy can send a .357 Magnum 140-grain Hornady LEVERevolution pill downrange at 1850 feet per second. Nine of them, actually. Just not all at the same time. Or do it five times in a row without reloading. That said, I know which gun I’d rather show to a jury. Anyway, this is just for fun. Which one would you have for a conversation piece/range toy?
