    This one looks new. I know the Raging Judge Magnum is in .410/.45LC/.454Casull. Maybe this thing really is 28ga? Who knows what the Taurus designers are thinking anymore?

    the .410 judge was the answer to the question no one asked...now this???
    the only thing harder to find than .410 shells is 28 gauge shells
    does 28 gauge buckshot even exist?
    a little googling shows that the biggest stuff around is #5 shot for pheasants

    More to the point, it's over .50" bore, 28 ga is ~.550". No commercial handgun ammo will fit that, so it's either rifled for no reason (which means it's a DD unless it has the ONLY exception for a revolving shotgun over .50"), or smoothbore, with means it's an AOW. Either way, I'm not thinking it'll be getting into the country very easily if at all.

    But would you shoot it is the question, I don't think I would in a 12 or 20. 28 maybe alright but even then its not for me.

    I was under the assumption that the Raging Judge was going to be 454 casull. Seriously? 28 gauge?

    The highly visible front sight is meant to facilitate the removal of it from your forehead by the ER doc. I'm so glad they thought of that! :)

    It's probably satire. Everyone who's followed the price markups knows CTD has a sense of humor.

    I thought it might be a joke as well until I saw that the article has been updated with this picture:

    Sure as heck looks real to me.

    I saw the picture and still thought it was a joke. Perhaps a one-up promo for Taurus?

    It'd have to be NFA, or a DD at best to be able to be sold.

    I'm holding out for the 4 gauge / 1" Gatling Gun version. Though I suppose, with that length of cylinder and the 28 ga. .550" bore diameter, they might be able to load up a .550 Express. http://www.weaponsmith.com/550-exp.html

    I'm trying to see how it is legal and not a short barreled shotgun. There is no cartridge that can be shot through it like the .45 Colt. No one make 28 gauge buck shot or slugs. Any cartridge over .50 is considered a destructive device, not counting ancient african hunting rounds and shotshell rounds.
