    I was just curious to hear from anyone who has owned judge or owns one currently and likes it? Any specifics about the one you chose?

    I have one that I won in a drawing. I don't shoot it, mostly because I have other stuff to shoot. However, I have shot several Judges before and liked them. Because all the weight up front on the pistol, it shoots very "soft" and is actually fun with either the 45 LC or the 410. I wouldn't want to try to carry one concealed. It's heavy and a little awkward. It's not everyone's style, but anyone I've met that has bought one enjoys it.

    My brother bought one years ago, not long after they were introduced. I have shot his quite a bit over the years.

    I like the concept, and like the pistol.

    I have a Governor, will shoot .45acp as well. Bought it as a snake gun. Never really use it but I like revolvers.

    .45 ACP?

    I thought they only shot 45 long colt and .410, no...?

    I have had a couple. They serve their purpose.

    I do and I do. 3" barrel, shoots 2-1/2" shells. I got it to have on my hip for snakes and such while working in the pastures and to have in the canoe for moccasins while fishing. For these uses it is excellent.
    Taken a few quail that I rustled up in the tall grass.
    Regular buck shot and the Hornady slug & ball rounds will just about put a hogs eyes out at close range (in the trap).
    If you want to just pepper something to scare it off and not hurt it good for that too.
    And that's about the extent of it's usefulness other than a noise making conversation piece.

    Within the 6' social distancing range I image it'll blow a man out of his boots and catch his clothes on fire.

    I know someone who had one. The long one that drug the ground...ya know that one?

    Neighbor stole his dog, and just like the grocery shopping meme, he went and asked for the dog back, no problemo.

    Id have to say they work very well.

    With a moonclip they shoot .45acp too. The Governor, not the Judge.
