That's a valid point about the Taurus Judge models. Their QC is iffy sometimes. I owned a NIB model Protector Ti .357 snub in 2004. It worked okay but the overall fit & quality were lacking.
I did hear + reports about some big Judge revolvers.
The Ruger AK snubs in .454 or .44magnum are robust & hold up too. They also had Crimsontrace laser-aiming grips(red dot).
To tote a full size auto pistol & a subcompact 2nd pistol of the same format makes sense. You can use the extended or full size magazines in either pistol & you can conceal the compact sidearm.
Every 2nd matters.
