Taurus' firearms are a hit or miss generally. I stick with Smith and Wesson and Ruger's revolvers. In my opinion you can't go wrong with a .357 magnum. It offers, just like the .44 magnum, a lot of versatility. As to what firearms to look at I suggest the Ruger Blackhawk, Ruger Vaquero, Ruger GP100, Smith and Wesson 686, Smith and Wesson 19, or the stainless version of the 19.

I've never shot a raging bull but I do have a judge with a 3" barrel. If you are looking for accuracy though the judge is good up to about 15 yards. Then you're better off to shoot the gun itself out of a slingshot. Never shot the 410's out of though. Those would give you a much larger pattern for sure. I'd say you would be better off to go with something other than a judge for sure, fun gun but that about it. Just fun.

Don't have a judge, but I have got a governor. It is a fun gun to shoot, but trying to work with three different types of ammo has it lacking a bit in accuracy. I can hit the target at 20-25 yards, but it's not a good group. I may be part of the problem, but I don't think I am all of the problem. I would say that if you are looking for some accuracy, do not look at a judge.

I would not trust my life or my families' lives to any of the firearms you have mentioned.

R U looking fo a revolver or A automatic?

mrbirdguy 10-18-2011 10:45 PM

ok so is a357 a good hunting caliber? or a 44 mag better? i would like a relvolver
any legal hunting caliber? how is the recoil? hows ammo price/avalibility?
how popular are they the caliber
any brand make a ported barrel the raging bull has does it do anything? muzzle rise? reduce recoil? is it necesary?
cal you put say some kind of red dot and maby a laser on it?

JTJ 10-18-2011 11:40 PM

Muzzle brakes will reduce recoil but there is a cost. It will be louder and have more muzzle flash. Dont shoot one in the dark as it will temporarily blind you. A good .357 mag will probably do what you want as you are looking at small animals and possibly self defense.
