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.
