    Taurus?

    I was finally able to watch that defense show on outdoor channel. I saw a commercial for a Taurus, I think. I hope I wasn't dreaming, but I could swear that this weapon was chambered for the 45 as well as a 410 shell. Please tell me I'm not crazy.

    Your not crazy. It's called the Judge. I haven't seen one in town yet at the shops so all I know is what I've seen on their website and on TV.

    I think someone on the forum recently posted about buying one.

    Wicked revolver....DR_CMG, picked one up for himself. He had a good report on it from what I remember. Thats .45 long colt / .410 that it shoots, not .45 ACP.

    The stainless looks sweet but the kick on that thing must be tremendous. Thanks for the link cpmiv.

    Quite the contrary from what I hear. A friend of mine has one and shot it recently. The "Ribber" grips on it are supposed to absorb quite a lot of the recoil, and according to him they do a fine job of it.

    I bought my father one...

    It is indeed a nice firearm, with surprisingly low recoil. The dealer I bought it from had apparently not seen it before, because as I was buying it, he made a remark of "Son, you do realize it's gonna kick like a sum gun with those 410's?" I laughed and said "Dad isn't planning on shooting it but one time." I think he got the message. Anyways, the grip is awesome, as said above. I would compare recoil to a little under a .38 or right at it.

    I've seen them at the gun shows. I too would have guessed the recoil to be a problem, but it sounds like it isn't. That makes it an interesting option for a house gun.

    Here's a question, how would you compare .410 buck shot to the .45 Colt for practical purposes?

    I wouldn't, for so many reasons, not the least of which is range from a rifled barrel, penetration, and power from a short barrel.

    Slugs would be a different story, maybe.

    I used to have a derringer that chambered the same. I couldn't fire more than three rounds through it before my wrist started to hurt. I don't have a pic of it, but here is a link to it on the American Derringer Website (it's the first one on the page). I sold it to my brother-in-law.

    A great house gun.

    Yes to above, a good house gun. My father is keeping it by his side around the house, and is keeping his kel tec as his carry weapon.

    It would be great for carrying in snake country with some 410 field loads.
