Taurus Judge 410GA
Taurus Judge 410GA The Taurus Judge® is so named because of the number of judges who carry it into the courtroom for their protection. Capable of chambering both .410 shotshell and .45 Colt Ammunition, this amazing combo gun is ideal for short distances – where most altercations occur, or longer distances with the .45 Colt ammo.
Taurus has finely tuned the rifling to spread the shot pattern at close quarters or to guide the .45 cal. bullet to the target. The Judge is fully customized with fixed rear sights, fiber optic front sights and Taurus Ribber Grips®.

The current product line includes steel-frame pistols, polymer-frame pistols, revolvers, and law enforcement weapons (submachine guns and rifles), the latter intended for the domestic Brazilian market. The company manufactures and sells its firearms for generally less than other manufacturers due to low labor costs, as well as having the facilities available to build virtually every part themselves.
One writer said in 2010 that the “[q]uality of Taurus handguns in the modern era is second to none”. In 2015, Taurus settled a lawsuit for $39 million and recalled nearly one million handguns produced between 1997 and 2013 due to “safety defects”.
