Taurus Judge Model 4510TKR-3BUL 45LC/410 Bore, $620

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We found the Judge to be a lot smaller than we thought it would be. It is a very handy, easily carried revolver that did exactly what it was supposed to do. The Ribber grips tamed recoil well enough that we didn't want any more weight to this five-shooter than this Ultra-Lite version had. The red front sight worked well, too.

At 3 feet the Judge made 1-foot-diameter patterns. We estimated the maximum range for self defense would be about 10 feet. Smaller shot would also be more effective than the #4s tested.
Taurus lets you know what this gun is, though itís not cataloged by that name. Itís basically a Tracker with a special cylinder and frame. There are long-barrel, stainless, and 3-inch Magnum 410 versions of the Judge.
Fit and finish and lockup were excellent. We liked the feel and balance of this revolver. We found that hot 45 LC loads gave more recoil than .410 shotshells, which filled up the imposing 2.6-inch-long cylinder, shown. Specialized holsters for this handful of gun are being made.
