Default Smith and Wesson Governor

I can't believe Smith is making this. Aparently they called it the governor because the governor can tell the judge what to do.

It can fire .45 ACP with moonclips, 45 Colt, and 2 1/2" 410 shells.

Intresting, I would like to see how it works out for them. The price is not that bad for being a s&w. The function and reliability will most likely be much better then that of the taurus brand.

I am wondering how well would a 45 ACP work in such a long cylinder. I basically has to travel through 1.5" of an unrifled steel tube and then into 2.75" of rifiling.

Would the rifiling have trouble after so much travel with no spin?

It also holds six rounds, compared to 5 in the Judge.

Thats cool and all, and I love S&W products, but I dislike how they play "catch up" with EVERYTHING.

That is true as of lately, however in the big picture of handguns, Smith and Wesson has done MUCH MORE than their share of innovation throughout the last 150 years. Heck, most popular cartridges that we use in handguns were first developed by S&W. . .

As for the gun in question. . . You'll probably never find one in my safe and it appears to be somewhat of a stab at Taurus for years and years of cheap knock offs.
