Default Taurus "Judge"

I'm thinking about getting one for a ccw-type application. I like the 3in barrel with the 3in mag (.410) wheel. Anybody have anything to say good or bad about them. I think it's an interesting concept.

If your looking for a dependable CCW handgun, I would suggest you do some more research before you buy.

My father has one and loves it! Its really fun to shoot. Might be a tad heavy for ccw, but I carry my full size 1911 around. So weight is not an issue. If I were you go pick it up. You wont regret it.

Along with your CCW research you may want to do some research on Taurus quality.

I lke the idea of a Judge if it was made by someone other then Taurus.
I'm not bashing Taurus allot of people like them. The experience I had with one made me decide there will never be another Taurus at my house. Go to other forums and read about Taurus. I think you'll change your mind.

not a big fan after doing some research...

now they have a new model that will chamber the .454 casull though, not just .45colt/.410

What's your plan for it? to shoot 3" buckshot, ie 4 or 5 buckshot from the 3" shell?

If it's for snakes I'm of the opinion just get a revolver and shoot some snakeloads rather than .410 shells.

Less you really want to shoot buckshot out of it, I'd try to get the 2.5" version.

Saw a test of the buckshot on a milkjug or something, wasn't very impressive at 10 feet or more, something like that...seemed like those 4 or 5 shot could miss their target.

1) gimmick
2) oversized for good concealed carry
3) iffy Taurus quality
4) gimmick
5) with shot loads, you 110% sure of where each shot pellet is gong to go? LOTS of liability should one go where it's NOT intended.

Dont quite undestand the problem you guys have with taurus. I presently own a raging bull in 454 and with many many hot loads through it, it still is tight and works great. I've owned multiple taurus 44 mags and work with a couple of guys that own the judge. I've never heard a complaint out of their mouths or anyone else I know that owns a taurus. I worked in a gun shop for 3 years and never had a customer who was not satisfied with the purchase of a taurus pistol. I'm sure there has been some problems out there, but any gun can and will have problems.
