Fun toy. Nice marketing job. I guess a bit of birdshot in the face would sting as bad or worse than mace and it won't wash off.

As a .45 Colt it's bigger than it needs to be.

I think having one would be great. I love the grip and it's very comfortable to hold. I agree, it would stop whomever is coming at you.

I personaly own a judge and have shot winchesters pdx1 and some heavy soft tip .45 colt rounds and I do believe it will stop just about anything in front of it.

I have the polymer frame and I love it. The grip is a bit small but I plan on replacing it with a slightly larger one.

I have the 3" cylinder Taurus, I honestly love the feel and weight of it. I just don't like the fact that I can't get a holster ( focus, kydex, etc...) to fit the 3" cylinder model.

Mine is just the 2 1/2 inch modle with three inch barrel...
It realy depends if u want more of everyday carry or accuracy... I tought about getting the 6inch barrel for hunting purpuses but I also wanted a carry weapon too. The public defender would be best for concealed carry use IMO.

Have you taken a look at the Blackhawk! Serpa holster? I have one for my 2 1/2" cylinder Judge and, for my needs, it works very well. They also come in the 3" cylinder models.

As to the Judge, it certainly is a niche product and a compromise platform. I consider mine to be a "beater" tool, not an heirloom weapon, that I use for a snake gun in the boat or on the tractor or trail. I subject mine to sweaty, dusty conditions, and the Serpa® holster works well to prevent inadvertent loss of the weapon in the lake or under the bushhog, and can be easily cleaned afterward. If I'm not shooting shotshells I can step up to the .45 Colt, realizing that in all circumstances this is a short-range weapon. It's not very expensive and I'm not too concerned about using it under austere conditions. For me, it fulfills a need pretty well, and I'm happy with mine.

I have the Ultra-Lite, blued, 3" bbl model, which has been discontinued. Weighs in at 26 oz.
