    Taurus Judge

    Hello!

    I've always been interested in having this pistol as a side arm for hiking, biking, exploring, running, riding, etc. Anyone own one? I know it's sort of a novelty pistol, yet I can't shake the idea that it would be awesome for unruly beasts, such as rattlesnakes.

    For those who are unfamiliar - it shoots both .410 shotgun shells and .45 long colt.

    If you're an owner - tell me your thoughts please.

    Had a judge, house was broken into alarm finally went off and that was all they made off with. Replaced with the Smith & Wesson Govenor. S&W is a little more expensive but, much higher in quality + 6 shot vs 5. I believe this to be about the perfect personal defense weapon & pretty fun to boot!

    Always like the look of the Judge, and thought it could be a nice piece....but my .38 snub nose Taurus/5 shot is more practical for Conceal and Carry....and quick action when needed.Taurus_38.jpg

    I'd like to have one someday, I agree, the smith is nicer overall for not much more $$.

    If you must have a 410, then the Governor is the way to go. But the question I would ask you, is what is it that you want/need it for. Fun? Then they are good for fun. I don't own one but have shot it. But, if you are looking for self defense, or critter control, or even two legged critter control, then there are many better options in my opinion. I might add, that you can get shot shells in many different calibers. Right now they are a bit hard to find, but they are out there. CCI .45 ACP shot out of a 1911 is a hoot!

    I have owned a Judge Public Defender for a couple of years. Considering I also own higher quality Colts, Smiths etc. the defender is a good value for the cost. I doubt that anyone will shoot one enough to where quality is an issue. The loud report and huge ball of fire out of the shorter barrel is pretty impressive in 410 mode and I wouldn't expect to hit much at any distance, but it wasn't made for that anyway. I also like mine as a home defense, auto and trail weapon. The novelty of being able to shoot 410 is what makes it fun!
