Isn't a turkey gun just a shotgun that can shoot 3.5" shells, has a pretty paint job, and has a tight *** choke?
Swap out the extra super full choke and you have a duck gun. Add a mag extension and a light and you have an HD gun.
A "turkey gun" would work fine, as long as you didn't use turkey loads in it for home defense. Turkey loads are still "birdshot", and unless you are being attacked by little birds, you can use better loads.
Get some 00 Buckshot rounds for your turkey gun and you are good to go for home defense.
