The outdoor Wire Discusses the Buzz on the Taurus Judge Pistol. -(OutDoorWire.com)-

This quote is from The Outdoor Wire on the excitement around the SHOT Show over the Taurus Judge Revolver…

And it wasn't a new gun, but Taurus' introduction of the latest iteration in their Judge series of .45/.410 revolvers kicked up a lot of attention. OK, the Judges are all fun to shoot, but the idea of a three-inch barrel, reduced profile hammer (Model 4510PD) model called the “Public Defender” that could be carried in a purse was definitely buzz inspiring.

The Taurus Judge- the master blaster's a melon disaster.

But the biggest impact wasn't the gun itself, despite the fact there were crowds waiting to handle it in the Taurus booth throughout SHOT. It was the introductory commercial entitled “Melon Heads”. Taurus engaged viewers with a movie-quality scenario…attractive lady, dark parking garage, dark shadows lurking and the whispered “Let's get her” setting off some very impressive – and sudden- action. Quick as a bunny, this decidedly not-defenseless lady whipped out a Public Defender and blasted five watermelons (the melon head gang) into oblivion faster than a Gallagher concert. It was a grabber commercial and an amazingly effective demonstration of raw firepower and controllability from a three-inch, five shot revolver.

A plasma screen looped the commercial and a “making of the melon heads” trailed video throughout the show. Everyone paused; many stopped. It was an effective demonstration of a firearm's capability presented with a sense of whimsy that was both engaging and sobering.

    1. Somebody said it has a 2″ and not a 3″ barrel. You can get the judge with almost any length barrel that you want.

    2. I’ve seen the 3″ blued version for $429 and the cheapest Public Defender I saw today at a Gun Show was $549, but it was the nicer, all steel color.

      They threw in a box of special .410 shells that are used primarily in the judge.

    3. This would be a great weapon for self defense, especially for my wife. I have had a permit for many years and thank God I never had to use my 9 mm.

      What is the price range for this pistol?

    4. The judge public defender has a 2″ barrel, not a 3″. At close range it doesn’t really matter, but it is much easier to carry & conceal.
