I have owned them, shot them, and I sell them.

Personally, it is a gun for gun owners that already have more guns than they absolutely need.

I own one, shoot it, and have no plans of selling it. According to Wyo I should have one though :neener:

In a 3" barrel I'd imagine the 45LC might do okay, but a .410 might as well turn into a swarm of angry bees. With shotshells you either need barrel length or a choke to control the spread. IMO 3" just ain't enough unless you're point blank - but at that distance give me ANYTHING that goes bang.

I nearly wanted the long barrel tracker version, but it only comes in 2.5" shotshell, but I also want one primarily to shoot clays one handed.

There is a Raging Judge coming with a longer barrel ( in .454/45/ 3" .410) that might be adequate, but the short barrel versions seem to have numerous reports here of being more effective to scare people past 3 yards with the Shot. ( low penetration unless a very lucky pellet hit, but not as much loss of power as say a Derringer in .410)

Not as cheap, but the 7" magnum research BFR supposedly has a better choke on it, but costs considerably more.

It makes a good snake gun when fishing.

I shot one loaded with bird shot at a pop can MAYBE 20' away... it knocked it over... lol...

This leads me to believe it is good for NOTHING but shooting snakes/rodents at point blank... if that... as to shooting clays one handed.... I don't think thats happening unless you are tossing them up yourself and popping them at point blank...
