    If it was mounted to this I'd give it a try

    My guess is it was made in answer to the dinosaurs being released onto the North American mainland from Benjamin's estate (as shown in Jurassic World:Fallen Kingdom).

    That gun should be enough to take care of the T-Rex and we do have to protect ourselves.

    Where does compare to the 2 bore or 4 bore. When compared to a 50 cal. The 50Cal looks like a 308 if you have no reference.

    I have a 4 gauge, smooth bore BP rifle. It takes a charge of 550 grains of BP and almost a 1 oz. round ball. I have no intention of ever shooting it.....
