Yawn. More copying and "me too" products.
The only really innovative handgun I've seen is the Boberg XR9s...if it ever actually hits the market.

I actually like the looks of the judge better than the S&W clone. Still don't see myself buying either though.

I know a lot of people that would love to see S&W put out a decently priced .45ACP wheel gun. To bad they will have to settle for this boat anchor.

As others have indicated... ‘If you can’t innovate then imitate’. I can hardly wait to see what comes out of next weeks event.

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
No buckshot ammunition is currently available for the 28 gauge, however.
#5 Birshot is the largest shot size that I see that any ammo company is currently loading for it. #5 birdshot is only .12 caliber in size !
Taurus must be working with some ammo vendor to come out with some new self-defense loads in 28 gauge.
There are some funny comments in the link:
"Wow, I think they even managed to out-ugly the Judge. That’s an accomplishment."
"OK, first we get Ruger “borrowing” their inspiration from Kel-Tec. Now we get S&W “borrowing” from Taurus. What’s next Sig “borrowing from” High Point?"
