Just picked up "The Judge" 3" barrel in SS a couple of days ago from Cabela's for $409. These are becoming increasingly hard to find since the demand outnumbers the supply by far. Extremely fun to shoot with #4 and #6 shot. 45 Colt is suprisingly accurate. 2 inch groups at 15 yards.

That's not bad accuracy! I've been waiting to hear about its accuracy with .45 Colt ammo. The 5 ball 000 stuff sounds pretty effective at close range like in the house, but I'd wanna back up 2 or 3 rounds of that with a couple of .45 Colt silver tips or something. That's certainly decent accuracy for self defense. Just sorta been wondering how all that free bore AND a cylinder gap would negatively affect it. Apparently, it doesn't too much. Should make a quite effective bedside deterent. :D They're selling those things a HECK of a lot faster than I'd have thought! There's been attempts at .45/.410 revolvers before, but I guess it took Taurus to market it properly. They are the biggest company, I believe, to market one.

Here's what's been sitting bedside for me (along with my .38) for several months now. I really bought it as a travel gun for bird hunting, but it's almost as handy as a handgun by the bed and a whole lot more effective than a .38 I'd think. :D

Congrat's on owning a very interesting gun.They have been peeking my interest lately.May have to give in and take the plunge.
Are you glad you bought the shorter barrel?
Enjoy.

Here it is...sorry about the pics. You can click directly on the pic to make it larger. And yes, I'm glad I got the 3-inch barrel. Those are Federal 1/4 ounce slugs.

Sharp! They should put dovetail sites like that on all the Taurus stuff. I had one installed by a smith on my M85UL. I don't like shiney front sights and a dove tailed one like that allows for windage adjustments.

Whatever you're comfortable with in the dark while you're half asleep. Nothing beats a 12-gauge loaded with 2 ounces of "00" buck----ya can't miss. (And if you do I feel for you). ;)

NYPD in AZ have you looked at holsters for the Judge. I'm getting a Judge on Tuesday and have been looking for a hip holster. This gun will be a gun I take camping so the holster don't have to be nice. If you seen anything let me know.

You won't find any molded holsters to fit the Judge specifically---yet. I just bought a basic nylon hip holster with a detachable velcro thumb break for 10 bucks. It serves the purpose since I won't be carrying this gun around with me on a daily basis. Any universal nylon holster that fits a 3 to 4 inch barrel revolver will work though.
