    Post Your Bad A$$ Home Defense Revolvers
    As stated in the Reviews #4 shot is a Nasty Load, and will not over penetrate... And 000 Buckshot is a Bad A$$ indoor round also... Each of the 3 Balls has the power of a 9mm, so even if one did penetrate a wall, most of its energy would be spent...
    NOTE: 3 out of Ten Medium Framed JUDGE's sold now are being sold to women for Home Defense... Its a Point and Kill the Bad Guy GUN...
    Remember, shooting anybody in the Back OR over 25 feet, Makes YOU The Bad Guy In COURT...!!!...<:-((

    No it doesn't.

    Same diameter, but half the weight.

    Not to mention, even if it did, most departments have moved away from 9mm subguns because of over penetration through walls and under performance against body armor.

    - sorry, just realized I'm sidetracking

    Back to the revolvers

    Primary go-to revolver is the 4" Redhawk on top stoked w/ 200 gr GDHP .44 specials.

    "theboxoftruth.com" pretty much ruins the judge as a good manstopper with ANY shotshell loading. I'll take a .357 please.


    I just watched the video and the guy says "the judge is the same as a Remmington 870".... That is not a good sign.

    The buckshot loadings are pretty poor preformers and the bird shot is laughable. The article says that the #4's will most likley blind and instantly kill if shot at the face of an intruder. We know that #4 will not penetrate very well especially out of a snub barrel.

    The Judge is a cool gun, but load it with .45's for HD.

    i am a big fan of the taurus judge, i had the pleasure of owning one for a few months back in november. but i being a dumbass traded it for a bersa .380 for my wife to carry, and here in reading Pa, they're impossible to find. any help in locating one would be greatly appreciated

    My father-in-law has a Judge. Took it to the range last Xmas when he was in town. It was fun to shoot for sure.
    That said, I would not use it for self defence. The .45 LC is ok is suppose but the shotshells are not much use beyond 3-5 feet (IMHO of course).
    Now, if the gun could handle the pressures of the 454c... well then you'd have sumpin. :cool:

    Taurus seems to advert this gun as the ultimate 'truck gun', but why. Id take my ruger p89 with 17 rounds of 9mm over anything else with only 5 rounds anyday. In my truck or not. Or 6 rounds from my Ragin Bull 44mag will do nicely too.

    Bad A$$?

    Got one of these 16 1/2" long, 3 1/2 lb. puppies on the way, and a custom crossdraw holster on order:

    If 6 .44 Magnums don't do the job, I can always use it as a club.

    And one of these for quicker drawing, and for doing some bad-a$$ pistol-spinning to scare off an intruder (unless I drop it):

    One of these beasts as a backup. Of course, I it would take a few minutes to load it, but what the hell.

    Now for HD, I do have a little Airweight, but you asked about the "bad ass" ones.:rolleyes: ...whatever that means...

    As stated before, no, they don't. You're also working with much lower pressure in a shotshell.

    Like every other defensive firearm in the world? Or are you saying that because it's a "shotgun" you don't have to aim, just point it in their general direction?

    ...no, it doesn't.

    Methinks you need to do some reading here and elsewhere. I don't think you know what you're talking about, and it could end up costing you your life.

    I'd listen to those who posted before me. No need for me to expound. I'll just directly post to the Box 'o Truth and you tell me if you believe gun writers who are trying to sell guns for their advertisers, or if you believe actual objective testing.

    This guy sleeps on one side of my bed.

    This one on the other side.

    Holy crap. This was in the article to which SgtKnuckles linked. WHAT?!?!?!?!? Companion in bear country loaded with .410 slugs or buckshot?
    Maybe with .45LC, but even then, i'd rather have a fully rifled barrel for more accuracy.
