Ok, so don't get me wrong. I would probably buy this, just because I like having weird shut that other people don't, but what possible use could someone have for this? It is basically a Taurus Judge in rifle form.

Saw one at Dick's today, didn't even know they existed. Had to play with it a little. Convince me that there is some need for this. Can it replace a 30-30? Just don't get it.

It's called the Circuit Judge. They make a cool ranch gun but I wouldnt use em for hunting anything larger than coyotes or cougars.

Doesn't seem like it would even reach out far enough for coyotes. I am just trying to figure out what this would be used for, and I am drawing a total blank.

I should probably buy it just because nobody else can find a use for it either, and, therefore, it will have a short production run and be worth thousands years from now as an obscure "what the heck were they thinking" type gun. You know if I did, and I had it up at Memaloose you guys would want to shoot it for the heck of it.

I wouldn't want my hand on the forearm during firing. There was a problem with the Colt cap and ball revolver carbines with hot gases and multiple discharges blowing forward.

I think the Taurus is built with a shield so it's supposed to be relatively safe in that regard. Post #22 in this thread from THR shows a pretty clear picture of it:

As to whether I want one... sort of. It's not really super practical and won't do much of anything that the guns I already own can't do better. At the same time it's pretty novel, and I am a bit of sucker for that.

Jeff Quinn of Gunblast.com has a complete review with photos and video of the Circuit Court Judge. It is very beautiful, well made, and incredibly accurate with the .45 LC choke in the barrel. It seems perfect for home defense too: a five round .410 double-action revolver-shotgun. Perfect for those who are not skilled with guns. Me much big want!...................elsullo :D

i think its really cool as for people that dont think a 410 in a rifle is good for hunting i used to hunt when i was a kid with a 410 bolt action for deer and ducks i would load 2 bird shot and a 410 slug, slug would be the first shot and then i had bird shot for ducks along the willamette river near salem i have killed dear with the slugs and it always worked great . lots of ducks went down too . it was a great combo for a kid

Thats why I have the Saiga 410. with shot and slugs. It is a nice looking gun though. Just wish it was a 45/70 instead:s0131:
 
Will this one also fire 454 cassul?

I think this is a really nifty gun. a double action repeating .410 shotgun or 45lc rifle could have many uses. From hunting, to pest control, to home defense...

I think I know what i'm asking for for christmas.
