Maybe more hits out to 15+ yards with buckshot. Just an idea I'm throwing out there to see what y'all think. Not sure if this has been asked, though I did search.

IIRC, the rifling is what keeps the Judge legal. A smoothbore would be classified as either a SBS (Short Barreled Shotgun) or AOW (Any Other Weapon), I forget which it would technically be, and thus require special registration and a tax stamp ($$$) paid to the Gov't.

I hadn't thought of that. Sounds like that could get very expensive even if it could legally be done.

Yes, that would make it equivalent to a sawed-off shotgun and require registration under the NFA. Maybe a muzzle attachment like the TC Contender .410 has would help.

This is correct. It would make the Judge illegal. This used to be discussed on this forum a lot, about 10 years ago when the Judge was wildly popular.
