I don't care if it's S&W making it...

It's still a dumb idea.

a .410 revolver is dumb.  It was tried before with the MIL Thunder Five, and it was a market failure.  So, Taurus copies it a few years ago with the idiotic Judge.  They put some serious (and misleading) marketing behind it and prove PT Barnum right.

S&W sees a lot of dollars going to a dubious concept, so they pull a 'Me Too'.  They tweak it to run with .45ACP as well as .410 and .45Colt.  But what they end up with is still just a copy of a copy of a market failure.

And the naming of these things... The Judge and The Governor?  Seriously?

  2. Total agreement. Funky toy? Fine, I can get on board with weird. Example: the Rossi Ranch Hand. Bad at everything handgun and rifle, but a fun toy. Marketing it as anything that is worthwhile for serious defensive stuff is disingenuous.

    1. Trust me, I understand wanting a gun because it's goofy. You want to hit hand thrown targets with a revolver- I can see that. Get one of these.

      Want a revolver for self defense? Get a .45ACP or .45Colt revolver. It will be smaller, lighter, and easier to handle and conceal.

    1. AMEN! Repeal the NFA so I can buy a suppressor for $50 at the local gunstore.
