OK, I kinda get it. The Taurus Judge is a revolver that shoots 410 shotshells and .45 Long Colt ammo. It’s meant for personal defense. And hell, just look at the thing! It looks big and ugly and would probably scare an attacker on looks alone.

But I just… on another level, I don’t get it. A .357 snubbie will do way more damage. I got to fire a Judge, and I wasn’t in any way impressed. It feels like a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist yet. Also, how the fuck are these NOT considered a Short Barreled Shotgun? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s bad that the ATF won’t let you have a short shotgun without a permit. But if we’re going to regulate this shit, let’s have some integrity here.

On that note, I love SBSes. I WILL eventually get a 10″ barrel Mossberg 2+1 pump.
