Here come de Judge!

For my (late) birthday present, my SO bought me a Taurus Night Court Judge, a limited edition, black-matte version of Taurus' popular Judge line.  It's a rather unique double-action revolver that can fire both .45 Colt and .410 shotshells.  It's an excellent self-defense weapon, as the shotshells can be devastating at close range while the .45 Colt round can take down black bear or deer.  It has a very nice soft rubber grip which is totally unlike any other handgun I've ever handled.

Don't let the picture fool you, that's actually a pretty darn big gun.  It's larger than a Colt 1911.  Below the gun are a .410 shotshell, a .45 Colt round, and a practice dummy round.

EDIT:  Uploaded better photo

Wow; cool gun. But sorta reminds me of the LeMat revolver. Sorta. Edit: BTW: Do you know what one of them costs? Armed Fennec perhaps. :)

The Judge? It's about $500. Plus tax. And registration and fees and stuff.

A LeMat, I'd have no idea, but they're really old (1850-60's) and pretty rare (only 2900 produced). Cabela's sells a modern reproduction for $750, an original could easily be worth tens of thousands.

I don't want a LeMat. I just thought the Night Judge was reminded me of it. :) Thanks for the information on the Judge series.
