    I like what I see and I would like to buy a 45 colt 410 but I will have to say I don't like Taurus at all. They are make cheap and resale is a joke. I do wish someone else would make one.

    I've had both models and recommend the shorter barrel unless your are big and strong. I forget the actual lengths of the barrel but for me the long barrel was way to heavy on the front end to the point it was uncomfortable. I loaded mine with buckshot and was surprised at how well it patterened. At fifteen feet you could cover the 3 pellets with a large dinner plate. I think we sell them for around $449.00 in case you want a price comparison. Jackie B.

    Cubancigar, which one are you looking for? The 2-1/2 chamber or the 3" chamber?

    I might be able to save you a few bucks

    I just recently looked at this for a home defense purchase. I think it is worth wild as far this a nightstand/under the matress type gun. For a Taurus I thought the price was high @ $459-$469. To me it's not worth carrying or see little or no enjoyment of shooting it at a range. I'm looking at other options and ideas I have in mind but, if I can get it for alot cheaper than the price tag I was looking at I'll buy it for its intended purpose.

    Now that they have the Judge in an Ultra-Light, 12.4 oz---would think this would be a bitch to shoot being that light----Phil

    Is there really such a thing as a 2.5 " .410? I've never seen anything but 3s. Anyone shot any .410 slugs in one of these?

    Close your eyes when you shoot it at night, or the muzzle flash will blind you. HMB

    I do cannot see myself buying anything made by Taurus.

    The guns they made for Cowboy Action Shooting are not very good.

    For a gun that will not be used much - it may not matter.

    For a gun that you will bet your life on - well......

    Great personal defense concept. Friend of mine bought one and fired some 2 1/2 inch 8s out of it at 15 yards it had a about a 2 foot pattern due to the rifling spinning the wad and slinging shot everywhere. John Ertel

    Dumbest looking gun I've ever seen. The cylinder looks like you roll out cookie dough with it. HMB

    I also have a Thunder 5. Built like a Tank and takes 3" 410.
    Before fireants we had lot of small copperheads in spring. The
    410 was great out the pickup window.

    I checked and didn't have a stainless but was wrong about the price. It was $419.99 but it only shoots the 2 1/2 in shells. Jackie B.

    Have had a lot of Taurus revolvers and like them, in fact just bought an 85 half hour ago. My gunsmith, who is excellent and been in business for 30 years, swears by the revolvers. The new smiths are no better from what I have seen and read. The Judge is an interesting idea and I might try one myself.

    Before we had fireants like we do now, we had lot of snakes, including
    copperheads. Now that firearnts are so bad, we have few snakes or any other
    ground breeding/raising snakes or birds.

    I have a 2" Taurus revolver in .45 ACP, fixed sights. Uses the stellar clips to hold the rounds. I'm very impressed with it. No matter what ammo brand or bullet weight, it shoots 6" low @ 25 yards, and it ain't my eyes. Everyone that's ever shot it shoots from 6 to 8" low. A real quality hunk of shit, best suited for a canoe drag anchor. I was a fool for buying this one, never again. Oh, and by the way, the Taurus PT 1911 that supposed to have all the trick gun smith work pre done on it has a safety problem. Taurus knows about the problem and has yet to recall the gun. My friend has sent his back to Taurus 3 times so far with a 3-4 month wait for return. Each time it's comes back from the factory, after 2 clips of ammo the ambi safe on the right side breaks and flops free. He's now waiting for the 3rd return, we'll see. Ya get what ya pay for.
