Just like its big brother, the Public Defender Polymer delivers amazing versatility and devastating firepower for self-protection. This scaled-down model of everyone's favorite combo gun, the Taurus Judge, still gives you the ability to fire your choice of ammunition in a size that fits in most pockets. In addition, the lighter, polymer body frame has new updates for improved handling and accuracy. The internal transfer bar mechanism prevents the hammer from striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled fully to the rear, an important safety feature. The exclusive Taurus ergonomic shock absorbing grip design provides a firm grip under virtually all shooting conditions. An extended ejector rod allows for positive extraction of fired cases.
