Finally got a pistol. I've never owned one until last week, but got tired of packing a rifle everywhere. Picked up the Taurus Judge in the featherweight model that takes the 2-1/2" .410 and the .45 Colt. What a cool gun! Put a few rounds though it and I think I found a new best friend! Even had my son, who is 9, shoot it. He did great with the .45, but with the .410 shot with a slug, it kicked back a lot more. He didn't like that, but was sure good with the .45. I'm assuming the bird shot will have less kick back for him?
I think I'm going to use it for moose hunting! heh heh.
