I would still go back to the judge if I was you...yes the .500 will do what it is supposed to to a grizzly if you CAN hit him where it needs to go. The judge gives you so many more options and is easier to shoot. You can shoot .410 slugs, buckshot, bird shot, etc.

Still in my humble opinion a better option and easier shooting gun....and a lot less weight to carry all day!

Have fun with the .500...not fun to shoot in my opinion. better than shooting a .45-70 in a handgun but not by much!

But that is what is great about this country ..generally you have a lot of options to do what you want....to each their own.

Traded the Cassell for a .500 S&W revolver. Yeah its a little heavy but outta really piss of the grizzlys when I head up to the lodge in alaska end of july.

P.S. Had to dump the flask also, just not enough room under the vest.......oh well

Why would you want to trade a gun that you could probably shooot fine for agun that is very tough to shoot and also tough to find ammo for it so I am pretty sure you probably won't be practicing as much with it? That switch confuses me....greatly...and yes I do know what I am talking about...I make a living ( at least part time) teaching people how to shoot guns. I have also shot a lot of different guns including the .460 S&W...nice gun but not good for self defense and not that easy or fun to shoot.

That new 3" judge fits under my jacket next to my bourbon flask just fine

As a person that has a CCW permit in Colorado, and a gun advocate, I am amazed at the ammunition people give our detractors. Dull

Piscator, For the Judge, I would suggest the 000 buckshot. I have shot it out of the Judge along with slugs and birdshot. No doubt about it the 000 buck would be the way to go...very deadly within 30 ft or so...even further....also a lot tougher to miss than a slug. Bird shot is just gonna piss something off more.

After shooting the Judge, I will seriously consider it if I ever get out West. good defense gun and a chance to use it as a survival gun as well if you bring a handfull of shot shells to take out some sprucegrouse or whatever.

It really is a nice shooting gun that is pretty manageable for most.

One sighting of a mountain lion does not constitute a population. Also I used "west" as a general term. The black bears don't bother me much, but we have quite a few here as well.

"Move out west were you actually have animals that can and will kill ya..."-Dave G....

What kinda animals would that be Dave? Grey wolves? I got em out my back door. Found more tracks and scat 2 days ago! Pumas (Mtn. Lions, whatever name you call em)? Yep, we got em around here too. Bears? Yes we do, though not the grizzlies. But, you don't have grizz in your part of Colo. either do you? The blackies been crapping on the golf course next to my house and knocking over bird feeders last few years.

Not sure how I feel about concealed carry yet. Im leaning against currently because I don't like the idea of people carrying guns who are out getting boozed up. Remember the case on the news this past winter about off-duty cop and girlfriend who were killed outside a bar in SE WI by a 20-something year old guy?? That aside, I'm currently trying to minimize and eliminate all the little trinkets that my fly vest carries that I'll never need. I'd like to own and carry a gun though while fishing, and as soon as I make room in the vest I'll consider it. Then once enough frustration sets in, I can just shoot the damn fish and go home happy.

Dave, We have animals in Wisconsin that can and will kill us...they're called gangsters and they live in densely populated urban areas. Interesting species to hunt too.

The mind boggles at Wisconsin winters being called warm and sunny. Oh, I get it, you're talking about June, July and August rather than all those other months we have to wear parkas and snowmobile suits. Tounge Out

I lived out west for 34 years. Salida, Beuna vista, Leadville Co. Arkansas river river out my back door(s). Winters are to long and cold so moved back to sunny warm semi-freindly wisco..........
