    Anybody shoot these 410 pistols? Want to one for rattlesnakes on the ranch. I figure the Smith would a better resale item. Comments? Thanks, Charlie Henderson

    Smith is hands down better made. The trigger alone is worth the difference. You can shoot 410/45LC/45acp/45gap out of the S&W (moon clips). The Judge is limited to 410/45LC.

    We have sold about a dozen of the Taurus Judges, two were refused by us and sent back to dist. and one or two were sent back to the factory by the owners. I have a Taurus 38spl that I am happy with but the S-W are much better with the action function.

    Taurus as far as I'm concerned is junk. Made cheap and resale is a joke. When the Judge came out I like the 410 and 45 colt combo but not the maker. I'm glad to see someone else is making one and its S+W. I will in time buy one and that one will be S+W.

    I'm finding out they are hard to get. Nobody has one in Amarillo. Charlie

    They can order one for you, usually get it in a few days if the factory isn't back ordered
