Real quick, I'm new here, but not to guns. Some of you I may have talked to elsewhere, and I may make some new aquaintainces.

Here's the pic:


Here is the questions:
Just how lousy is the accuracy in this gun with the 6.5" barrel and .45lc(i am not a reloader yet)

What is the recommended 2.5" shell, and the best HD 410 shell yo use in this gun.(I've seen the box o' truth and gunblast deal)

I'm sure I'll have other questions, so please bear with me.
thanks
Kris

nice, probably want the revolver section though, this section is more for misc semi-autos.. WHY they make us stick the 92/100's in with the rest of the rift raft i'll never know, yet the milpro and 24/7 both get their own section.

anyhow never shot a judge but i hear people talk highly of it, looks like a nice gun.

I know I do not load, so I have used 200gr cowboy loads, 200 gr fmj, standard loads, 225 gr jhp aluminum CCI, and 250gr JHP to good effect. I have not been able to obtain any of the 3 pellet buck shot, but I have shot the #4 & #9 shot. Not to much to it beyond 7 yds with shot shells. Now with the 45 colt, I have done pretty well out to about 45 to 50 ft with all the loads I have. I really have had no reason to go to 25 yards, or longer, someday MAYBE!! The target is a 5" disk shot from about 45 ft. When I do my part you can see the hole, with it and a an SA 22 mag cowboy gun.

I have got to ask, what is the attraction to the Judge?
(or better said, your attraction, to the Judge)

Mine was part of a trade. Guy, dang near gave it to me....for 1 of mine.
SO, I know very little of them. Other than they are harder than hell to find.

That's knowldge of holsters,ammo,grips,and other good stuff. Covers a broad spectrum.

Or do I smell " I want to unload this beast" in the wind.

Either way this is a small compilation of Judge info. Small mind you. There's a lot more where these came from if youso choose to do a search of the archives on all this.

Break out the snacks and beverages, this'll take a while. ;)

I think they have some very definite niches....go to the Taurus website and view the video they have on The Judge - the gun itself makes a pretty compelling argument as a self defense weapon in an urban environment.....I personally see it's niche as a self defense weapon while camping, or being out in the styx.....the 45 LC is formidable for 2 legged predators, and the 410 shotshell has a number of applications, the most obvious of which would be dispatching snakes.

Besides all that, they do look like fun guns to shoot..... :)

As always, Da Prof is a wealth of knowledge, all available at your fingertips.....

Very nice indeed! The Judge certainly does have it's fair share of enthusiasts and would daresay it's one of Taurus' more popular items. From comments I've read from owners here and elsewhere, they seem to be really well liked by.

I'm not sure what I want to do just yet. I haven't even shot it yet.
It really does sound like a blast with shotty shells

Well here is the breakdown of the trade.
It's with a guy I trade regularly with. He is a deputy sherrif that just got promoted to Det.
I already traded him my G31(for his M&P 40), but he wanted a B.U.G. in .357sig.
I traded him my G33, 500 rounds of .357sig, and a holster for are ya ready...A 2nd Gen G17, the (LNIB mind you, 5 rounds thru it) Judge, and 50 bucks....
We both left happy, and I guess that's all that matters.

Until he comes back to arrest you for theft by deception!!!

No actually, I am not a trader but sounds like both of you got what you wanted, or at least something different.

Some here might know (from another forum) I am a tradin' fool. I'm gun rich, and money poor. :D

Actually, I have a "core" collection, that is deemed "heirloom" the rest of it is trade fodder, and nothing is sacred. This Judge just might make "heirloom" ;)

Good read Sarge.
Glad I decided to post here. Taurus is much hated elsewhere(I'm guilty of it on the S-A side)
This is giving me much insight into the Judge
