I traded an old Ishapore 2A1 for a 2-1/2" SS (3"BBL) Judge yesterday. After I got home from work I blasted 14 out of 25 clays (hand thrown to about 12-15yds) using Winchester #6 shot, and put 15 rounds of .45 Colt handloads inside of 5 inches at 10yds. This was my first session with the Judge. I got it mostly to take care of snakes while I'm working my fenceline. Looks like it will do the job OK. Might even be a good truck gun.
