I don't know why the .410 gets a bad rap.
A .410 with buckshot is the same as a 12ga. with the same shot.
There are simply fewer pellets.
Each of those pellets would do the same damage as a 12 ga. pellet.
Bird shot from a .410 and bird shot from a 12 ga. would have similar results.
Although the Judge is sort of a gimmick, there are stories of people successfully defending themselves with one.
The owner of the range I shoot at actually MISSED a snake with the Judge. And he is not a bad shot. Too much spread. Also check out the box o truth test

I've got a 3inch Judge,
and must say it is the gun world equilvalant to the squid sport bike.
but man-o-man is that thing fun.
but any one who doubts the H/D power of that thing come on down and kick My door in.
Any one in My home can pick it up and hit anything with the short barrel shot gun range that the gun designer had in mind.
