I have a 6 1/2" stainless steel "The Judge" that I picked up for use on snakes when riding my atv in the mountains. It fits my holsters for the Mark II which was a real surprise and is deadly on snakes. Accuracy with the 45 colt is also good. Usually I carry three .410 shot shells and two 45 colt rounds loaded in "The Judge" while riding. The ribbed grips soak up recoil very well. "The Judge is very popular in this area among a varied cross-section of shooters.
