    My experience with these pistol shotguns is that the required rifling spins the shot, causing it to spread so fast as to be pretty much worthless. I wouldn't want to shoot anything much farther than muzzle contact.

    You'd think that putting a .410 shotshell in the Judge would make it a short barrel shotgun. Im suprised the ATF even allows that.

    its a .45colt caliber revolver that just so happens to be able to use .410 shells too.

    IIRC John Linebaugh needed to get a sporting use exception for the .511 caliber 500 Linebaugh.

    Taurus knew the regs, and knew it would be banned. In my opinion, Taurus had no plans at all to release this. I bet the one pictured does not even fire, I have never seen a video of one being fired and you think that would be out there somewhere. This is nothing but a marketing ploy to get people to go to the taurus booth at the SHOT show, and it worked. Months after the SHOT show it is still being talked about.

    their site says it fires the .454 casull. that is a legal handgun round. I agree with it being to big and clumsy to do anything but show off with.

    Make it in the USA, 28 ga, smooth bore, register it as an AOW under the nfa with a $5 registration fee and it will still sell well.

    We are but one country that has laws that forbid this.
    We are not the largest importer of firearms.

    i thought the .410 round was legally designated as a caliber and not a gauge anyway.

    Looks like there's some confusion in this thread. The Taurus Raging Judge is basically a bigger judge that fires .410, .45LC and .454 Casull. It appears to be based on the same large frame as the older Raging Bull which also fired .454 Casull. It's perfectly legal.

    The OP was actually referencing the newer Raging Judge 28. This is the one that fires 28GA shotshells. The names are similar because it's built on the same large frame as the raging judge, but they are in fact different guns.
