I have no problem in buying a tauris Judge in pa, I can buy a 18 inch shotgun in pa without a problem.

I believe there are some derringers. If you want to see intimidating, check out this BP double-barrel shorty shotty: Cabela's -- Davide Pedersoli Howdah Pistol What a way to say "Howdy".

i think someone has mis understood the classification. in the state if georgia it is classified as a handgun. but then again a mossberg with no stock / pistol grip is also classified as a pistol due to the pistol grip.

Default 45/410

I have learned that ma. has a test that insures a firearm will not discharge if droped.. taurus did not prove the firearm cannot discharge if dropped... therfore I cannot buy one in this state, many things do not make any sense in this state but that is the regulation , thanks for all the ans that I did get from this question .525erving

that is the problem he ran into here in alabama. like i said check your local laws to see how each state classifies it.

I thought SBR & SBS classification was done by the BATF only? IOW, a sound supressor is a sound supressor wherever it is, but some states allow them and some states don't. It is my understanding that the rifling in the barrel prevents this pistol from being classified as a "shotgun"/short barreled shotgun by the BATF, so i would think Alabama must have some othe issue with it. What am i missing here?

I always liked the look of the Bond Arms Derringers, but I've never shot one.

ok update on my post from earlier. after talking to larry about the taurus last night i found out that it was california that outlawed it due to classing it as a short barreled shotgun. also he has the judge magnum with the longer cylinder and is having problems finding a holster for it. does anyone know of one, preferrably nylon uncle mikes?
