I also found some .25 ACP. It looks like it should be for a toy, cute little baby bullets.

So I've been contemplating a revolver for concealed carry. I was leaning toward a s&w with a concealed hammer then I saw these today:

Has anyone shot one before?

Interesting design cause the chamber is on the lower cylinder rather than the top cylinder.

They are not small. Not as small as a j frame S&W anyways. I have held them at shot show a couple of times and they just don't look like the would be easy enough to conceal.

Warboar is right they are not small. The recoil is supposed to be much lower because of the barrel being lower in the gun and apparently it does work (talked to a guy at the range who had bought one) but it is just a little to funky for me. I would get a S&W or an LCR if it was me. Taurus revolvers are a decent choice as well.

They are a smart design but the grip is pretty stubby, and I don't know if you've seen the cut away view of the internals, but there is basically a little wizard inside there that makes everything work....

On the concealed carry pistol subject I got to looking around online last night and I discovered they have a concealed carry version of the judge with a polymer frame. My primary concern honestly is wild life while we're on the trail and I like the idea of a shot shell option. That would make it allot easier to hit a rattler in a hurry. Has anyone fired one of these with the polymer frame? How horrible is it to shoot?

Why not just open carry on the trail and not worry about polymer versus steel frame. I have fired one and the damn thing is a literal hand cannon. I personally would've felt more comfortable with a steel frame version, or even better a S&W governor.

But what does anyone's opinion on here mean to you, you're just gonna do whatever and when it doesn't work, complain! Haha. Besides, have you seen a snake yet out there? I have only seen one that was 12" long in all the trips I've been, and I would've been able to grab my single shot .410 if needed.

Basically, buy a truly concealable weapon and then buy your "snake handler" haha

I've seen a rattlesnake on trail once in the 10 years I've been hiking out here. I've never been worred about a bite or even in remote danger that would require me to draw my firearm (not that I dont carry however).

I, personally, would never own a judge, not use one for any type of defense. I guess if you are shooting birdshot you could hit a rattler easier, but I doubt you'll ever run into that situation.

Just curious, but have you ever seen videos on how the judge patterns? I've seen a few videos/reports reports where from about 20 feet, 1 of the 3 00 pellets in the .410 shell MISSES a human sized silhouette. Thats pretty bad. They also are not known for being very accurate with .45LC either due to the ridiculously long chambers.

keep in mind you can get shotshells for any number of calibers, so if you wanted to just carry a .357 you can always have it loaded with a .357 shotshell or three
