    You can get snake shot in other calibers. You don't necessarily "need" this gun for that purpose. But hey - whatever floats their boat.

    I think we have a unanimous dislike for this gun, so far as can be seen from given responses. Wouldn't you think S&W would test these ideas out on a sample group before spending so much money in R&D as well as production costs involved in gearing up an assembly logistic that would be required to put this gun in production? I would guess that if you took a poll on here about the Taurus that shoots .410, you would see that this is not a well received gun so why would S&W think their version would be better received? I'm not here to slam S&W, I'm just sayin'.

    I doubt this gun is any different than the Judge. Ive read many reviews and watched a few youtube videos on the performance of the Judge, and the performance/penatration of the rounds is very poor, so I doubt the S&W Govenor is going to be any better.

    There's lots of folks new to guns all the time. They buy into the marketing hype, because they don't know any better. The Taurus ad that showed a target with a couple of bullet holes in it, and then a bunch of birdshot holes, asked the reader "You be the Judge." To the ill informed, the one with all the birdshot seemed better, I'm sure. That ad was so disingenuous, that for that reason alone, I will NEVER buy a Taurus product.

    And now, S&W is going down the same road. Misleading people who don't know any better. Sad, really. And all for a buck...

    I guess I won't be posting pics of my pimped-out Judge, with scrollwork engraving, gold inlays and ivory grips.

    Yeah, and don't be showing anyone your "Judge" tatoo either.

    Maybe next year, Ruger will introduce "The Bailiff".
