I noticed this discussion in another thread and thought I would bring it out for all of us to see..

What weapon do you have next to the bed in case a moron decides to break in.

All I have is a 12 gauge pump. which would work fine if I hear them before they get in the house. Close range though I may be struggling.

I'm going to a Gun show next Saturday the 17th..,
Ronn you'll be interested in hearing If one of the dealers has a "Judge" I'll probably be bringing it home with me (depending on price of course)
I've been wanting one for awhile now. :w00t:

Bruce they do seem to fit the bill. 410 at 7 yards what a mess. This gun was built for personal and home defence and I have no doubt it'll do the job. Although Taurus isn't atop my list of manufacturers, they got something here.

I hope those are the special home defense slugs and not hunting slugs. If it is a hunting slug it will go through the perp, possibly some walls and hit an innocent person (family member, friend or neighbor who came to help you).

i like that judge... well the mechanics of it anyways... the price and and look of the gun are definitely not in my favor... i don't know why but i really really dislike the looks of revolvers like that with the handle and all.

as for my home defense i have my 20 Ga Mossberg shotgun usually within 10 feet of my when i am in my bedroom, but i also have a .22 cal pistol that is usually on me or within my reach at all times.

once i become um more legal to own a pistol (17 more days till 21st bday) i will definitely be looking into a a lot stronger pistol

You guys saw what I got the wife for Christmas so if she misses I have a 357 with a 6" barrel as back up. I sure would hate to have to shoot it in the bed room though, I am sure it would cause permanent hearing loss to everyone in the house.

I'm with Bruce on the Judge, I would sure like to have one.

I've never really had the need for it here where I live because it's such a small, close knit community where every one kind of knows what's going on and watches out for each other. Alls I have is left hand/right hand and a block head.

maybe im old school but a 12 pump or anything of the sort is sure to deter anyone from taking the tv. i mess with some guys i work with and tell them if they ever try to break into the house they wont die but with a broadhead stuck in there bottom it will make for a painfull trip to the hospital...:ph34r:
