Bought the Public Defender as a conceal carry weapon. Seems like a very well built, solid revolver. Took it to the range where i ran some .410 #6 birdshot, .410 PDX self defense rounds, and some .45 colt ammo through it. The revolver handled all these rounds very well and it shoots surprisingly accurate despite only having a 2.5\" barrel. The recoil is not as bad as I thought it would be, but it does kick pretty good whether you\'re shooting .410 or .45 colt ammo. The only thing I am thinking about changing is the grips, I have some big hands and the stock grips are OK, just think slightly larger grips would help manage the recoil and help with the accuracy a bit. Overall I really like the Public Defender, it cycled through all the ammo I put through it without any problems and it\'s fun to shoot.

I received a Taurus 4510PD-3B M4510 Public Defender 5RD 2" barrel 410ga/45LC 2.5" chamber as a gift from my brother a few years ago. It's now my favorite self-defense handgun. I like it so much I purchased two of them at Bud's Guns. Although the ones I received are flat black finish, unlike the shiny black finish in the photo on the site, they are the same pistols. This pistol is great for home defense & auto defense. I have even carried it concealed without a problem. One thing to note while carrying concealed if using the .410 shotgun shells, one would need to be cautious of the pattern to be sure one wouldn't accidentally shoot bystanders. When using the Winchester PDX1 I found a pattern of about 12" diameter at 15 feet. The pistol also holds .45 LC, which might be a better choice when carrying concealed. It's my understanding that this particular model is no longer manufactured by Taurus, so get one, or two or more while you can. You won't regret it. The service at Bud's is the best anywhere on the web.

Perfect size gun for personal protection. I find the regular judges too big and cumbersome to maneuver quickly. I am sure the other sized judges are more "fun" or "pleasant to shoot", but this is the one I want for protection.

Finally got to the range to try out my new Judge. Love It! What a gun! Works beautifully and the finish is just as flawless. If you're looking for power with a kick, this is it! And another hassle free purchase from Bud's.
