Re: The Judge?

The gov and judge are fun but not particularly good at anything more than home defense. I have read of guys rabbit hunting with .410 out of em. If you want a deer handgun buy a .44, .41, .45, or .357

Re: The Judge?

I apologize for being rude but I would never own a judge. I think they are pointless.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Re: The Judge?

Guys I know that bought them when they 1st came out thought they were pretty cool until they tried to actually hit something with them! Good for defense inside a room but not much else.

Re: The Judge?

I know for sure a 4/10 slug will kill a deer.It was a while back before shot shells were made of plastic,most of you might not remember that.So are you saying a 45 colt bullet would not take a deer down???? I also have taken squirrels -raddits and 2 ground hogs-all close range of course

Re: The Judge?

a 410 will take a deer,. 99.9% of the time a 410 out of a judge will not.

100% true statement.
