Home protection question
 
There's a gun show this weekend and i'm really thinking of purchasing a home defense firearm. I'm not interested in a hunting rifle/shotgun but an ultimate home defense weapon. If you got some ideas please send them along. I have two dogs so that area is covered. Mossberg is out. I would like lots of firepower, most likely a semi-auto, limited wall shoot through, ??? I know that says police style shotgun with #4 buck. Just thought if anyone knew of something really new/cool/effective. Thanks HM

The Handgun you're looking for is the Taurus "Judge" hands down.
The Judge chambers a .45 Colt OR 410 Shotshells.
It's ALSO available as a Magnum for the 3" .410 shotshells
Watch this JUDGE Video and you'll be convinced. It has great Reviews too.

Good Luck HM

I've always been told the best home defense weapon is a shotgun.

I have been looking into the same thing. So far most have told me a Glock in 40 cal. would be best with a laser grip. Intimidation and put them down power. No bells and whistles just pull the trigger and BOOM!

the judge is a shotgun .410 around 4" long or 45 long colt. good choice as well as the glock .40

bb, that's pretty cool. Thanks for the comments everyone. Don't know for sure yet, just know I want something for the changing times!:confused:

I went but didn't buy. The taurus judge was 650.00 and there was two of them. The gun show had a massive turn-out of people. Not much of the ammo I was looking for, 300 sav, #4 -3" buckshot. May look online.

I may be going out on a limb here but here is my thought. If you had a Ruger 10-22 rifle you could order a 50 rd banana clip from Cabelas and load it with bird shot .22 shells. But I don't know if those bird shot are even made anymore for a .22 because I used to use them a long time ago for a .22 I once had. Or you could go with the "judge"...I just watched the video after my post and I'm impressed.

HM you should be able to find the Judge for a lot less than $ 650. Dollars, that dealer is out to make a huge "PROFIT"

Here's a link to a Standard Judge 3" barrel only accepts 2-1/2" .410's <-$395.00 Dollars

Here's a link to the Judge Magnum 3" Barrel accepts 3" .410's <- $ 430. Dollars

here's a link to the Judge Magnum 3" stainless steel barrel accepts 3" .410's <- $ 464. Dollars

Those are all Band NEW Judge's.
They do charge an additional 30. dollar shipping fee to ship to your local Dealer but that still keeps them way under 650 bucks.

wmi I carried a Glock 22 for many years as a cop, and can tell you that all Glocks look the same, and only the added laser is the intimidation factor. Glocks are no more intimidating than any other black semi auto handgun on the market.

I have a new Taurus 24/7 OSS DS Tactical 5.25" barrel .45 ACP now if you in a stardown with the suspect him looking at the business end of a .45 ACP is more intimidating than looking down the barrel of a smaller caliber.

As stated above since it is just a "House Protection" firearm the Taurus Judge is a good option. But I personally like the shotgun idea since hearing one rack gets everyones attention and intimidates the boldest of bad guy's knowing that alot of 12 ga its gonna hurt is about to come down on you. Just makes it nice to have the right kind of "Point and Click" device in town.
