The Taurus Judge is a five shot revolver designed and produced by Taurus International , chambered for. Taurus promotes the Judge as a self-defense tool against carjacking and for home protection. There have been two model number designations for this firearm, the no longer produced and the current. Both model numbers are essentially the same revolver, and any or will yield basically the same performance. It got its name "The Judge" in when Bob Morrison, Executive Vice President, learned that judges in high-crime areas of Miami, Florida , were purchasing the revolver for personal defense in their courtrooms, and after Morrison investigated further, the model designation was changed from to to more accurately reflect the revolver's versatility. The rifling is shallower than normal, giving single-projectile loads less stabilization than they would receive in other handguns while reducing the rapid dispersion of the shot from shotshells. Though Taurus deliberately designed the Judge to fire shotshells, the Judge does not qualify as a "short-barreled shotgun" under the National Firearms Act of as its rifled barrel makes it a regular handgun.
