Some like having a shotgun for HD, while some say having a handgun is a better choice because it's more easier to get at, manipulate, and you have a free hand for flashlights, opening doors, etc. I tend to agree with the handgun option, but it seems I can have the best of both worlds by getting a S&W Governor/Taurus Judge.

From what I've read so far, the jury is still out in some quarters on whether the .410 gauge is really an effective SD/HD round. But I'm figuring if 3 .410 PDX-1 or .000 buck rounds don't get the job done, then the 3 .45Colt/.45ACP will.

What are our thoughts on these guns?

Sorry guys, I didn't see the thread below that basically discusses what asking about. :confused:

Consider it as a 45 caliber handgun that can also shoot 410 shotgun slugs and treat it as such. Don't place a lot of confidence in 410 buckshot being as effective as from a 410 shotgun. FWIW a 410 shotgun is one of the most under rated HDW a homeowner could have.
