Years ago, if you were to hand a .410 shotgun to a man and told him to use it for home defense, he would have laughed at you. Put it in a handgun with a short barrel though; now we have something. Marketing sure has worked for it.

I am not saying that the Judge wouldn't be suitable for close range self defense -- I think it is. But it seems to me that it's effectiveness is pretty much limited to that purpose, that when coupled with its size and awkward balance should make it a lot less popular than it seems to be. As stated, I would take one if it was given to me, but it's waaaaay down my list for purchase.

Uncle joe would love this gun. You can fire off FIVE warning shots, instead if two! The intruder might be deaf, so this one is more effective.

Stop it Giz, you almost put coffee all over my chair, pants, and smartphone. LOL!!! Biden would consider it high cap and make a law where you could only load two shells at a time.

Even better, two live shells and three snap caps. By law you have to load the gun with your eyes closed!

If it was smoothbore I would love it.

I have one I bought really cheap from a buddy that wanted to get rid of his, I love it as a play gun it is definitely fun to shoot and I believe it is good for personal defense in a home. I shoot 45 LC and the .410 PDX shells with the 3 copper discs and can devistate a target at about 10 yards accurately, so for close quarters use in a home I think it is a good choice with the proper rounds, but I also have the 3 1/2 in barrel which makes it a little more accurate. As far as distance shooting it's not accurate at all tho.

Exactly Custom. It's a great master bedroom gun, carries well on a tractor/machine, snakes fear it. Enough said, not to mention they are fun with a big smile.

Yes sir, exactly what they are good for. I also got some modified 45 LC shells that accept 209 primers and wax bullets, you just put them in with fingers, no loading equipment needed, and it really doesn't cost that much, you wanna talk about fun?? Sit in the garage and put a target on a piece of board and just go at it, so much fun and cheap too!

www.waxbullet.com Spitfire wax bullets, and as a matter of fact they make them for other revolver calibers too, not just the 45 LC..... cheap fun!!
