I hear a lot of gunowners disrespecting the Judge and they are simply ignorant or misinformed. With the ammunition available today,especially Winchester pdx1, make the Judge an excellent choice for stopping and dropping would be attackers with the first shot at normal self defense shooting ranges. The reason being the multiple impacts. When projectiles hit a body in that quick and numerous a times the body, its major organs go into hemorrhagic shock and fail. That's why a .32 skorpion is such a killer. This is scientific fact.
