I purchased a Circuit Judge in 410/45 last fall. I didn't get a chance to shoot it until a trip back home to Ohio in December. Most folks will tell you all of the negatives of the Judge line. I can tell you that my dad and I had more fun shooting this rifle than most anything else that we've shot in the last few years. Completely impractical but will put a smile on your face if you take it for what it is. We enjoyed some "cowboy load" 45 ammo in particular. I wouldn't choose it as my only long gun, but I am definitely happy that I made some room for it. Let us know what you decided.
Del Gue: Ain't that Hatchet Jack's rifle?
Jeremiah Johnson: Yep.
Del Gue: How did you get it?
Jeremiah Johnson: Found him froze to a tree.
