    Anybody out there picked one up yet or gotten to check one out? I feel like my next purchase will be a revolver and like the fact of getting 3 calibers in 1. Looking at this or a Ruger 101 in a 357 3" model

    Stupid, pointless, worthless, waste of money and material.... That should about cover it.

    I would like to see some ballistic tests done with a Governor loaded with .410 hollow point slugs. The advertised muzzle velocity is around 1,800 fps but I suppose that is from a much longer shotgun barrel.

    Ive never been interested by the judge or governor, but I dont fault someone else for wanting one... It seems unique enough... just not my kind of thing at all....

    I realize I have added no value whatsoever to this thread :supergrin:

    I agree with the above. I grew up hunting with a .410 shotgun. Squirrels and rabbits limping away were the norm. forget wingshooting. They throw terrible patterns and a ligt load of shot.

    The fact that they shoot .45 is nol, because there are plenty of .45's out there in more user friendly package.
