First of all, I don't want this to turn into a Taurus bashing thread. There are lots of people out there with Taurus revolvers that work just fine, any company can slip up every once in a while. Sadly, Taurus warranty and customer service are non existent in Argentina. I've had my Judge (stainless, 4" barrell) for a few weeks, but I hadn't really been able to test it. I tried some .410 ammo, and only a cylinder or two of .45 since I couldn't get my hands on any ammo and had no time to hit the range. Anyway, I went shooting today and took it along. I was well stocked with a couple of boxes of .45 LC (Magtech Cowboy Action and regular Magtech) and .410 (a box of #3 shot and a box of buckshot). I started with the cowboy loads and the target at five meters, shooting quickly in DA I got some decent groups. The sights were easy to pick up and with those mild loads recoil was non existent. I moved the target back to the ten meter line, and the groups open up a lot. At first I thought it could be me, I get excited when the shooting's going well and I screw up. However, even though I'm very much an average shooter, double action revolvers are what I handle best and even on my worst days I'm pretty consistent. I tried firing single action and the groups were still far from acceptable. To make matters worse, the cylinder started to jam. I'd get one shot off, and then it would stick and stop turning. This was really frustrating, just thinking about this happening in a self defense situation made me shiver. This happened after firing less than 40 shots of mild cowboy action loads. I didn't even bother trying to fire it at 15 meters. After I'm done cleaning it up I'm going to take it back to the guns store and either sell it or exchange it for something else. I've been meaning to expand my snubbie collection, this might be a good chance for a new Smith or Ruger. Or perhaps one of those cute little NAA mini revolvers.
