On a side note south Florida FWC just gave free range to killing of invasive iguanas and wonder if the judge sells will go up in that area.
    The Judge is most popular as a nightstand gun, truck gun, or trail gun. The Public Defender is supposed to be a Concealed Carry version of the Judge, but I've never actually heard of anyone carrying one, save for YouTuber NutnFancy who claimed he carried his in a video once, but he kept going back and forth about it's viability in the role, so it wasn't exactly clear if he actually carries it regularly or if he was merely doing so at the time in order to evaluate its performance as an Everyday Carry Gun, either way, he flip-flopped like crazy on the subject then went on to say that the S&W Governor was better about a week later in spite of still being really non-committal on the subject, but I digress. Out of the multiple roles which the Judge has become a popular choice for, Everyday Carry isn't one of them.

    Can the Judge be carried on a daily basis? Sure, folks have carried bigger, heavier guns than the Judge, (I actually recall a gun on a forum who used to EDC a S&W M500ES, although he did live in Alaska.) but it's certainly not a popular choice for Everyday Carry, nor is its Smith & Wesson counterpart.

    I guess I’d never carry a Judge; I’ve got a Governor . . . .

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    I have carried my PD Judge, wasn't that bad.
    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    I normally carry a PT 99 and two fifteen round mags, when I go to snake country I carry the judge. I'm not seeing any problems.
