    Shooting technique

    With the size of the judge is there a best way to fire it in a defensive situation?

    Shoot like you do any other double action revolver.

    Practice shooting it in double action to get used to the trigger pull and the trigger's length of travel. Slowly work up your speed as you get used to it. There a few different tricks to improving this. One is a coin on the top of the pistol. They have dummy rounds with lasers in them that shine when the hammer falls now as well. The cheapest and easiest method is to just dry fire it at home. Some people like to practice while watching TV, others in a room or in the basement aiming at a picture or a poster. If you can shoot well in double action, single action will be a cake walk. But in normal self defense situations, one isn't going to have time or will be thinking about cocking the hammer before shooting in self defense.

    I have a Mag and prefer to cock the hammer on the draw, easily done but muzzle discipline is crucial to safety. I practice this regularly from a vertical shoulder rig and belt holster, including crossdraw with the latter. Successive rounds, I fire DA. Experiment and go with what works.

    Those little squeeze hand/grip exercisers come in handy, too.

    Take advantage of both the positive and negative resistance. Squeeze it shut slowly, hold it for a short count (3,4,5) and then slowly let it return to open. Make your muscles work, not just go through the motions or you won't make any progress- just like in any other sort of resistance or weight training. Do multiple, short sets a day and stop when the burn in the forearm really sets in.

    When it gets easy to do with the whole hand, focus on just the ring and pinky or flip it up side down in the hand and isolate the middle and trigger fingers.

    The problem folks have with DA wheelguns is that shooting them well DA requires muscle groups not usually used in modern society by most folks. Most folks just don't have a need for that kind of hand, finger and grip strength any more, so we have to build up the muscles necessary to be able to shoot a DA revolver well.

    Hold on tight, point it at what you want to hit, keep your eyes open and in my experience good things will happen, well, most of the time �� �� it ain't for people who fear recoil and barrel flash and a loud report, in other words it's not for the faint of heart. Not a plinker ....�� �� �� ��

    *** OH yea, forgot a very important thing to add, if good things don't happen when you pull that trigger , pay attention now this may save your life !!!! If good things do not happen ..... RUN, RUN, RUN man ......****
