I have a Judge Magnum and have it for a couple years with zero problems (use it for skeet, target, home defense, killed groundhogs/raccoons/possums/ and crow with it), and recommended it to many friends to get it for home defense. This is a perfect conceal carry gun for any big guy. I use the PDX rounds for home defense but have shot some groundhogs and raccoons around my pond while I've been out there fishing. After seeing what it does to a groundhog at 10yrds I feel comfortable using it as my go to gun, or at least the gun that buys me enough time to unlock the gun case and break out the heavy stuff. Original post was about problems with a different gun, realized I posted it in the wrong spot so I changed this to be about my other Judge, just can't figure out how to delete this one or change the title.
