The Taurus Judge gets a bit of ribbing in the world of gun blogs and I tend to agree that it’s an awfully silly product that leaves gun nuts scratching their heads wondering who the hell is buying these things. I often wonder about their 2.5″ barreled .454 Cassull myself. Just further proof that if it’s a gun of any kind there’s a market for it in the USA. Nothing against Taurus in general, just saying.
Well, ran across a valiant defender of the Judge on Al Gore’s Tubes of Internets the other day. He was touting its awesome ability to fire flechette rounds to defeat body armor, flamethrower rounds*, and best of all that he’s managed to fit a .45-70 round into his and it’ll fire that too!
I sure hope he’s joking. If not, well, now we know what kinda market the Judge is hitting.
*: I can’t imagine anybody actually ever doing that more than once. Cylinder gap anyone?
