Marlin 1894 in .44 Mag with 16" barrel. Loaded with .44 Spl HP ammo.
I would not want to be on the wrong end of it. Very nice rifle.
Personally, I think a nice lever-action brush gun would be great. It looks to be a 16" model, though it could be a 20". I would want a light on it, but it should be easy to point and short enough to get around corners nicely.
It's a lot more jury- and media-friendly than an AR or AK.
Man...She is a beauty...
I don't see why not. Looks beautiful, btw.
PS, do the 44 specials feed as reliably as the 44 mags?
Certainly a beautiful and very capable rifle. Depending on whether or not you are in a neighborhood with homes close by or have family members in multiple rooms I might suggest something with less penetration power in the event a miss goes through a wall potentially. I use a 410 shotgun with turkey loads, buck and slugs usually. I do sleep next to a 1911 which seems to promote sweet dreams.
You do realize that a 1911, buckshot, and slugs will penetrate just as much 44?
You should be aware of a gun's penetrative power, but anything that will stop a bad guy will penetrate several walls. This just means you have to do some good planning.
I would have no problems with using that as a HD rifle. Like any of them tho be careful of you bullet path.
