RV Security

Many of us carry some type of weapon as an added safety measure. I'm considering trading my 9mm for a Taurus "Judge" Model 4510 TKR - 3SSMAG Taurus International Manufacturing Inc= as my all purpose 'vermin' (two-legged and four-legged) weapon. The ability to use 410 3" mags and 45 long colt in the same gun provides close-up and distant capability. Looking for feedback from anyone who has experience with this particular handgun. Thanks in advance.

The Judge is a great revolver. Perfect for protection during home invasions or RV invasions. It is a 5 shot revolver. Perfect for 2 "410's" and 2 45's to finish what the "perp" started.

9's will make holes in the perp/varmint but will not always stop them. 45's & 410"s (buckshot) will put them down even if not a solid hit. If you do not carry on your person as a concealed weapon then probably would be a good choice for close in work. Have owned/carried a number of 9's over the years (military included) but personal choice for all around use including concealed carry is the 45 Colt double action

I like the Judge, do not own one, but like it a lot. My primary close in weapon is my reliable old .357 with hollow points. I like it because target practice can be done with .38's. My backup weapon is an old school 12 gauge pump. If they come aknock'n, I'll be arock"n.

Hi CJ:

I have "The Judge" in the 2.5 in version. It is a very good close combat revolver.

There are two new buckshot loads that are really good. One is the Federal 00 buck shot load other is Winchester PDX1, it has 3 discs and 12 brass pellets loaded in one shot shell. Back that up with (3) 45 Long Colt 225 grain cartridges. Buffolo Bore makes some hot 45 LC ammo. I would pass on the cowboy loads for self defense.

Regards... Jim P.

I have a 9mm Baby Desert Eagle and a Colt Defender, .45 compact 1911. For travel I like the 45. Lots of knockdown power.

I would have to agree with the judge as a personal defense weapon. I have the 3in. with the 6in. barrel. It patterns 18in. at 20 ft. with both #6 and #000 buck. The nice part is that you wouldn't have to be very accurate in total darkness, your bound to hit something. Another plus is I dont have to worry about bullets flying out the walls and hitting something or someone else.

I have one of those Mossberg pump 12 gauge shotguns. One of the short ones that you can not take to Canada. It is loaded with slugs and buckshot and I figure it will stop a bear or a water buffalo if necessary. Just ''jack one in'' CLANK CLANK ,,,,,,, point in some general direction, hold tight and squeeze one off..... repeat as necessary. Remember this ....... If a situation requires you to reach for your weapon NEVER JUST POINT IT......... If you have to point it...USE IT... and if you aint gonna use it ..... DONT POINT IT........
This valuable information will cost you ten cents if you use it and you must pay me the next time you see me.... on the other hand, if it dont work for you.... I NEVER KNEW YOU .......

Lets not forget our wounded warriors that have sacrificed so much and asked so little of us. Give them a special THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THIS NATION when you see one.......... I give them a ''hug'' or a ''handshake'' and my best Navy salute and many thanks for their service.....

It is better to have a weapon and not need it, than to need it and not have one! Hopefully I will never need one, but camping in the National forest in AZ you dont know who is out there and what they are doing (drug smugglers, illegals, ect..). Even these prison escapees were caught in a campground that we had been at not long ago.

Never been in place where I have had to use weapon in all my years of RV travel. Been in New York City, Miami and other large cities and have never felt the need to use weapon or have one. In past life had times when weapon was out but only used it once. Also see no need to advertise around the campfire that you do or do not have weapon in RV.
