i think he meant that 20 feet or less is the distance that someone with a knife is a considered a deadly threat. 21 feet IIRC is the distance most LE agencies use for being able to use deadly force upon someone with a knife. theory is, that 21 feet or less they could possibly cover that distance before you could fire a shot.

This was in another thread recently. I love them for two purposes. 1)Snakes 2)Master bedroom defense. Anything else is just fun concerning this gun. My father owns one and it's a riot at the range, especially when you load up 4 .45 Colts and "slip" in a .410 buck shell. Hand it to your buddy and wait for the smoke and confused look on their face.

It's all compromise.
As a .45 Colt revolver, accuracy is compromised due the long-assed chambers.
As a shotgun it's compromised by the short barrel, and rifling.
As a gun in general, it's compromised by being a Taurus.

I had a judge once and it was a fun and versatile revolver. When S & W came out with the Governor I bought on and found it to be an even better revolver. The Governor not ony fired 410s and 45 Colts but also 45 ACPs which makes it even more versatile. One big thing I found with the Governor is that it shot much tighter patterns than the Judge with 410 shotshells. Some don't believe these revolvers to be accurate because of the long chamber length. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Judge: too much of a good thing.

I really like my Judge, 3" Bll, 3" Chamber. The grips are among the best I have ever felt, and it is very accurate with 45 Colt. The only complaint is that mine has a problem with .410 ammo. The cylinder freezes up after shooting one or two rounds. I am hoping that they will straighten this out for me so that I can be a totally satisfied customer.

I'm not going to hate on the Judge, it's a fun gun for snakes & pests but for defense there are better options. Nice shooting. Have fun.
