    A buddy from work emailed me this announcement from Taurus today. I had wanted a Judge but this is just so much nastier. It's essentially a 6-shot 3" .410 Judge that also shoots 2-1/2" .410 shotshells, along with .45 Colt and .454 Casull. I'm in love... :D

    Incredible! I've been wanting a judge as well, but this is great! Could take it bunny hunting, use it for home defense, or load the 454s in there for a trek through grizzly country. It's been a while since a gun has made me this excited!

    That looks very nice - too bad I will most likely not see it in MA.

    I don't know about a release date. :confused:

    I found a 7-shot Judge in 3" .410 on the site as well. So many toys, so little funds... :eek:

    I look for a .460 S&W version next year that will shoot .460 S&W, .454 Casull, .45 Colt, 2.5" and 3" .410 shells. I could be wrong but it would be the next logical evolution. Without a compensator however, the .460 S&W round could be nasty on recoil. I would bet a gun like that would have an 8" barrel. One can only wish it gets developed! :D

    A .460 S&W version would be nothing short of awesome. I really hope they do introduce one and have it with the 10" barrel, akin to the Raging Bull 500 Magnum when it was first released. :D

    does anybody have any idea of when these will come available to the public and how much they will run? im a huge judge fan and i see myself buying one or two of the new models. i love the 7 shooter and the 454 and the composite deal they have. i might sell my old judges to make room for these. composite or 7 shooter for CC and then the massive 454 6 incher to take into bear country. i might have pissed myself some

    if they do the 460 ill eat a noogit of my own poop. that would just be outright insanity.

    Well I have some info... its just not specific. A Taurus exec told me this will become avalible to the public "late this summer". Based on the numbers I am hearing, expect to see an MSRP around 950.00.

    well the numbers I heard could be completely wrong, someone was tring to predict cost based on some info they have. I thought that number was a bit crazy too but I figure I will just wait till this summer and see... and remember most dealers sell below MSRP.
