The Judge wasn't designed for petite hands, no doubt. I forget to consider that sometimes--I've got fairly big paws (wedding band is a size 15). Anyhow, the point was that even the comparitively diminutive .410 will turn brains and/or organs into scrambled eggs at close range. The Judge is just one of many different ways to deliver the shot.

I've never used bird shot at 5yds...

or shot a man in my home with birdshot either.

Shot a turkey at 6-10yds in the head with 3" 12ga #6's and the head was fine... dead bird...

Nothing says "Get out of my house" like a gun.
Sh17....nothing says "get out of my house" like the racking sound of a 12 gauge pump. A .45 ain't bad but a shotgun? You would have to be suicidal to go up against one of those.

haha, you sound exactly like my father, I asked him one day what would you do if someone broke in here? vs. get some buckshot... for the 12ga etc... "i'd beat the f*@k out of them!" haha.

good to know you put the bat down rev.

as we age, we mellow. We also ossify. I remember back in my bodybuilding days I used to bounce in the Italian dance halls in Bensonhurst Brooklyn. I never had a hankerin' to bat someone out...my choice would have been a dumbbell bar with the clamp at one end...but that was then and this is now. I still have some meaty paws
(pinky ring at size 13...hey ! I'm Italian from Brooklyn ! Gotta have a pinky ring !) and when I grab someone they're goin' nowhere but at 55 and getting progressively more arthritic, I can close my fist around the butt-end of a .45 very nicely. I'm not fool enough to mix it up with a kid half my age and twice as fit as I am...scare him if you can, pistol whip him if he closes with you, shoot him if you must, and it'd be HIS fault, not mine. Youth is wasted on the young...

You got that right. My mom who was in her 50s at the time used to say if you could put her brain with all of its collected wisdom on the body of a teenager she would be unstoppable.

I think she was correct.

Dang skippy--that's what drives me nuts about kids--they think they know it all because they can navigate an I-Phone........

Pinky ring?????? Ok, you get an "ethnic pass"...but just this once......I had an uncle who wore a pinky ring (he passed just a month or so ago). He wasn't Italian, but he could have easily passed...think it was the Indian blood in our veins...

I was hired as a bouncer for the "Velvet Hammer" once, many years ago. I didn't have the temperment for the job, and I've never liked packed rooms...

Man, do I ever understand the arthritus and getting older! I'm only 42 (43 next month)...like the saying goes, if I'd known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself! One of my buds used to try to get me to bet him on whether or not I would live to see 40 (he said I'd never make it). I never took the bet, because for a long time I thought he might be right...I made it, but only by the Grace of God.....the Grim Reaper missed several good opportunities......

I've still got a few good miles left in me though. Like Toby Keith said, "I ain't as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was". Still, I'm not as quick to jump on a horse (or my mule) as I used to be...getting thrown used to make me more determined, now it just hurts.......don't bounce like I used to, and those old injuries are catching up to me just like my daddy told me they would...man, I wish I could make my son understand somehow......
