I saw a pretty good review on this and the results were uninpressive...a .410 with a short barrel doesn't have alot of stopping power, and good luck finding 45 long colt ammo in quantity.

As Bird mentioned...ballistics are poor.

It is more of a prop piece than a good weapon. There are much better options out there.

Shooting the 3" shell helps the ballastics become more effective. Don't buy unless it's a magnum or shoots 3".

I think it's a great home defenese gun. First round .45, 2nd and 3rd .410, and then .45 for the rest.

Agreed with Birdman and Hatch.. more of prop.

If you are looking for a good defensive home gun there are much better, more proven options..

Like a good, normal revolver, or a 12ga.

The problem with this is the 410 (and all shotguns) is a low pressure round, so a short barrel really compromises the velocity (you get less energy AND projectile weight with a 410 slug than a 40sw pistol, I think most of the slugs are less than 150gr), and the 45 long colt is also a compromise cartridge...if you want a revolver, get a good 38 or 357, if you want a shotgun, get a 12ga...I don't like this peanut-butter-cup gun stuff.

Yep. My recommendations for a 'good' home gun:

1) .357 revolver (shoots .38 or .357)
2) 12ga with 18" barrel
3) Glock (either fullsize or compact: Model 17,19,22 or 23)


Theres nothing wrong with the Taurus Judge.. and Im sure it would be lethal at extremely short distances. But the problem with that mentality is almost any firearm would. Even if you are use that mentality.. the above recommendations bring alot more firepower to the table and have proven themselves over and over in home defense, law enforcement and combat. I cant think of any LE or military organization that uses the Judge.. or would recommend the Judge above those 3 options.

Best Home gun = 12 gauge. You can get creative and even put bean bag rounds in the first shell then load other rounds after that, if you are worried about getting blood on your floors. The sound of a shotgun racking in a round is universal and translates to any language as well.

That said, my grab is a Glock 21 SF with an M6X loaded with rounds designed to break up once they hit dry wall (dont need to travel past my house).

For home defense, I also agree with a 12 gauge shotgun. Just my 2 cents.

I've probably had this conversation a million times. And while I agree a shotgun is more effective at longer ranges. There is simply nothing more idiot proof than a good revolver.

I've thought about it and if for some reason I wasnt around or incapable.. could one of my friends, loved ones or family members defend me or themselves? Would they be able to load, operate and maneuver with a long barrel shotgun? Especially in a smaller house? Understress? What about the recoil? What about your wife? your kids? Could they effectively operate a shotgun if you werent around or incapable.

Or if they (or even myself) were trying to avoid a fight and hope 911 gets help asap.. and were hiding in a closet or under the bed or some other cramped place. Could they do that with a shotgun?

I would not have those worries with a revolver.

Very good point! I didn't think about the fact that at short distances, most rounds are lethal. I just liked the idea of a pistol shotgun, the manuverability of a pistol with the close-your-eyes n point and capability of a shotgun

Nobody tries to car-jack the driver from the passenger side...I mean unless you need him/her to drive you somewhere (only in the movies) why bother with the passenger side.

If i'm about to jack someone, ever car jacker knows to walk up on the drivers side in the blind spot and give him a head shot first to stun him then get him out the car.

You would have to know its coming to defend or pull the gun out.
