I've shot my dads and it maybe goofy looking but I like it. It handles very well. Reasonably accurate for what it is (2" 5 shot group @ 50yds.) My dad wanted one to keep around for keeping it loaded with birdshot for snakes and LC's for amardillos. He's killed more hogs with it than anything else.

After some thinking on the subject a Circuit Judge would be a very good option for home defense because the cylinders can be kept loaded without the worry of magazine springs wearing out or becoming weak.
So it's a silly solution to a non-existent problem.

If you want to have one of these things because it's fun, fine. They do have a certain steampunk charm. But SD is a serious subject and should be taken seriously. These things do nothing that a pump shotgun, lever action rifle or M1 Carbine can't do much better.

I would have said no, but I shot one last weekend. So I would now say NO.

Neat concept in theory. My uncle had a 45/.410 designer that wad all kinds of fun to shoot, but not very practical.
The number one cause of death in the 20th century. 290,000,000 citizens were first disarmed and then murdered by their own governments. This number does not include those killed in war.

pretty sure you could get a nicer better made pump gun for the size and cost of the rossi. IMO
E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.

Why does it have to be practical for anything? If you like it and you want it, buy it. What's the worst thing that will happen? You'll find out you don't like it? Then sell it or trade it, or just stick it in the back of the safe and have a laugh on yourself from time to time. I could see using one for squirrel or rabbit hunting.

I just got a big lecture on another forum about how over and under shotguns were better than side by sides. Big deal. I like side by sides. Get what you like.
