Anybody ever shot a Judge with a 3 inch barrel? How is the "kick" with a .410 in it?

I got one. It's pretty stiff, but not unmanageable by and means. Definitely not like firing a .50 cal.

Minimal. About like shooting a 38special. Quite fun and make great snake guns

I have the public defender, and it has a two finger handle. It would be better if it had a three finger handle.

Really, while recoil is not that bad it is much stiffer than any 38 I have ever shot except for a real small one. The Ribber grips do help though.

The first owner of he one I have said his wife who he bought it for shot it one time and said NO the recoil was too much for her

My wife can shoot one easily with one hand.

The kick is not that bad. I bought one for shooting banana spiders and rattlesnakes, I haven't ran any 45 Colt through it yet.

I guess it's ones perception. I don't think my 460XVR pushing a 275gr @ 2100fps has a lot of recoil

Should have added this. He is a liver transplant recipient and thus bruises easily. In his mid 50's and I doubt that he has ever shot a pistol. He wants it for protection due to recent news articles.

True, a lot depends on the shooter and the gun. My 629 44mag is not bad but the 45-70 contender does rock a little

With .410 #6 shot, the one I have hits everything in front of the shooter. Very good for those who have little or no experience with a pistol.
