Your post got me thinking. How viable would a .410 (or even a 28 gauge) version of a shotgun such as this be for defense? You lose a lot of your pattern and downrange weight, but the mags would become more managable and the increased firepower would be an asset. With some of the modern loads that were developed for the Judge, it could be a good weapon. I would think you would have to change your mentality when using it to more like a short-range carbine than an actual shotgun.

I'm not a fan of anything under 20 gauge in a shotgun for self defense. I'm also not a fan of the Judge - with its short barrel, I don't think the .410 loads will reach the vitals on a human. It's been discussed at length, so I don't want to derail this thread.
Smaller shells would allow more ammo capacity in a detachable mag-fed shotgun, but given that a shotgun is a low pressure firearm (it has to be, due to the thin barrel) I think smaller shells do not have enough momentum (individual shot weight x velocity) to get to the vitals. Just my thoughts.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.

We have an AR styled .410 laying around the shop, belomgs to one of the guys, I'm not sure what brand it is. I remember that it has real AR fire control parts though. With good new ammo it would work for the recoil sensitive shooter. I'll have to see what that thing is.
