Maybe. The Remington 870 safety blocks the trigger. Nothing blocks the hammer. It is possible for a sharp blow to jar the hammer off the sear and fire. One reason I prefer the Winchester 1200/1300. The safety blocks the hammer.

Example: "I heard the Taurus Judge will fall apart after x amount of rounds."

Joe Bob submits: "Yeah, my friends did that. He told me so." Wrong.

Joe Bob submits: "Yeah, I was at the range with my friend, and when we left, the Judge fit in his pocket, in pieces." DING DING DING! Correct.

Submit a myth.
on that note... is there any problems witht he judge.. I'm considering buying one

I have "heard" numerous complaints about the Judge series of revolvers.

I have SEEN the front sight come off the Judge after 15 rounds.

I have had an issue where, on separate occaisions, the second knuckle of my middle finger would hurt like hell after shooting it. I tried the Tracker, in .44, and same issue. I can only guess the grips put my finger next to the trigger guard.

I have HEARD of thr frame cracking on the Judge.

Some guys just have to own a pistol that fires shotgun shells. If that's the case, I've Heard nothing but good thins about the Bond Arms derringers. I have not fired one.

Kind of true for some wheel guns. Older ones that is. Take the Single Action Army for example. If you did not utilize the safety notch then you should carry on an empty chamber. But if you use it correctly then you can carry on a loaded chamber without fearing a ND.

All firearms can ND if they are not properly maintained. But Modern 1911s are just as safe as any other quality firearm out there.

The kid from the Life cereal commercials was reloading, using a mixture of Coca Cola and Pop Rocks, and blew a hole in his press....

I was told that a 380 had more "stopping power" than a 9mm or 45 because it dispersed its energy faster...

not making that up, I met a guy who was convinced this was true.

Okay, this is the kind of thing I'm talking about. Can anyone provide data to squash this myth?

Colt started marketing the series 80 (with the firing pin block) to prevent this from happening. The FPB keeps the firing pin from being able to hit the primer unless the trigger is depressed. Many other makers followed suit like Kimber and Para - some didn't. I have 1911s with and without FPBs.

As Robo has said (and none of us disagree with Robo), given enough shock - the hammer could come off the sear and allow it to fall on just about any firearm...
