The idea of a .45LC meant for shooting alot of .410 shells is a great idea,although Taurus is Taurus,i'm not gonna say they are bad but,If I wanted a gun like that i'd get the S&W Governor because I fully trust S&W,and the price isn't that much different.

S&W 915 9mm
Mossberg 500 Mariner 12ga
1945 Win 94
Ruger MKIII 22/45 4"
Savage MK II
Ruger SP101 .357

The S & W Governor holds 6 Judge 5. The Governor also shoot 45 ACP the Judge doesn't. Read this month Rifleman magazine it has a review on the Governor.
“There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period.” Ted Nugent

Ditto, owning both I can say that the Governor is a much better revolver. The design and build quality is vastly superior and being able to chamber 45acp is a real advantage.
