    Circuit Judge - first hunt

    Hi All,

    I took my new JC hunting today. I patterned the gun at the range yesterday and I really liked what it did at 25 yards. The gun performed perfectly. The follow-up shots were easy to make. To all of you who thinks 410 is not enough of a gun for bird hunting – it is ENOUGH. Three of the birds were taken down with the first shot and the rest with the follow-up. Even my buddy (the dog owner) was very skeptical at first. He though that the idea of having the revolver was silly alone and that it is 410 was a matter of a laugh to him, but then he changed his mind and actually is very impressed with this little carbine. I think it just might become my primary uplander I had a ton of fun. We did about 9 miles and got 11 birds.





    Cheers,
    Mad

    .410's have been around along time. I've hunted with them for years growing up, No complaints from me.

    Re: Circuit Judge - first hunt

    Did you have plugs in the cylinder so you could only use three chambers or does your state allow a higher capacity? Just curious how you thought of the plugged cylinders if you used them.

    Hey Ace,

    In Virginia you do not need plugs for upland birds. I beleive only migratory birds require the plugs. Sorry I could not answer your question.

    Re: Circuit Judge - first hunt

    No worries, in my state the bird mag restriction is three and was just wondering if anybody has tried hunting with the judge like that.

    I had no problem cycling the action with the plugs in at home. In all of my downed birds there were no need to have more than 2 rounds so far, so I think if you are not a horrible shot, then three shells should do per one bird.

    Cheers,
