The powerful and reliable Taurus Judge never fails to hand down a sentence. The Public Defender delivers the same devastating repower in a new scaled-down size that can travel with you. Capable of chambering both .410 bore shotgun shells 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 caliber bullet to the target. The exclusive Taurus ergonomic shock-absorbing grip design provides a firm grip under virtually all shooting conditions. Includes red fiber-optic fixed sights and a transfer bar safety.
