I believe I'd trust the Ruger before I would the Taurus. Yes I said that even though I own a Taurus 1911 and trust it completely.

The judge is still worthless for anything but play. The 38 could be useful but it doesn't come close to the Ruger. It weighs more empty then the Ruger loaded. Plus it's ugly.

Yeah it's like the new F-150. Took me a while to figure out if it was attractive or (f)ugly. I found out it was the latter. Nevertheless it looks like something out the the movie Judge Dredd (Sylvester Stallone 1995)

I guess it would make an excellent paper weight or doorstop....:D

The .38 nyeahh,... could work,... but it still doesn't feel right...

My steel framed Judge broke after less than a box of very mild Magtech cowboy loads. I don't think I'll be trying the plastic one...

And the grips on the .38 are just hideous, they should have used their "ribber" grips which are actually rather comfy.

By the way, the LCR has an aluminum frame. Only the fire control housing is polymer. This POS has an actual polymer frame. On a revolver. Oy.

I definitely like S&W's Bodyguard 38 plastic wheelgun better. Don't think I would trust an all polymer frame with +p's over time.

Since when did S&W start making plastic wheelguns? Must be pretty new as the only other 1 I'm aware of is the Ruger LCR.

I have not been able to find ANY Smith & Wesson polymer frame revolvers...

Can you provide some model numbers, links, or anything to substantiate your statement?

I have a Ruger LCR and I've put roughly 2000 rounds of +P through it so far, and no problems.
