Just picked up at lunch!

The Taurus Judge... I have been reading about these and looking at them for some time with my dad and at lunch today decided to pick one up! It was the last one they had. So luck would have it, the gun and all the rounds we needed were there today!



come saturday we will have to see what it can do.

Nice weapon!

Rounds for it are going to be difficult to acquire unfortunately.

Phase 1 Complete. Sold JK
Phase 2 Complete. Bought a Tow Rig
Phase 3 on-hold. Buying a trail rig. Thinking a TJ or XJ

Likely is because it doesn't have a key type safety so you can shut the thing off just by turning the key and locking up the trigger or some BS...

Holy freaking cow! It shoots .45 Colt, .45 ACP and .410 shotgun shells!!! LMAO....410 shotgun shells....dude! That's awesome! , this would make a great addition to some drivers side door Raingler netting

Found this from reading a few google searches, not my words mind you:

First, it is a Taurus which are known to 2nd rate guns. I bought a "judge" thinking it might be a fun gun to take out while hiking around. The 45 LC ammo works great in the gun but as for the .410 shells, be sure to use the smooth plastic casing. The rougher casings with grooves don't come out of the cylinder. The gun only uses 2 1/2" .410 shells which really limits the usable ammo selection. When using .410 shells, one really has to make sure the shells are pushed ALL the way down in the cylinder or it won't close. Numerous times the cylinder has not locked up.

This is not a defense gun unless attacked by paper targets or using 45 LC and then there are much better 45 LC pistols. This gun is a play toy and deserving of being called a serious gun.

I mean ok so everyone already knows Taurus is a less expensive gun but I personally think it'd be a cool gun to have.

What do these generally go for on average price wise?

Cool detailed info on this gun here http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot41.htm

I've been wanting on of these since they first came out,but no one around town has been able to get them.Bass Pro just sent out a sale paper advertising they have them in stock,so I may just go pick one up.

Its pretty bad man. I took it out and shot a couple 410 slugs the other day, doesn't kick back as much as I thought it would, nice and light as well.


As for pricing... look for around 550-575... they might change when the ultralights come out. There are also the two barrel lengths to choose from.

I didn't expect it'd kick back too much with .410s but with the .45ACP's I'd expect considerably more kick. Is that the case or not much kick with those either?

No, you def. have to put more muscle into it to fight the .45 recoil. I didn't get a chance to take it to the range yet, but I did set up some water jugs (x3). once I got over the initial shock of the kick from 'basically' a hand held rifle... it was cool to what was left But we mainly got it to combat the snakes that get in our yard and coons that dig in the trash. I have a feeling it will work just fine
