    How do we know he used a "Judge"? It does not mention it in the article.

    If you have separate info on that, do you know if he was firing slugs or shot? I think the Judge would make a great defensive weapon with shot and just wonder story if this backs that up.

    The only indication I have of what he used was from info in the original article on the incident. Newspaper described the gun as a .45 Colt caliber which the owner called "Judge". Sorry, no info as to what loads were used. Given the chance, I will ask some folks that may know.

    I re-read the article again, and it said nothing about the weapon the home owner used except for the caliber. Unless there is another article that I hav not seen, the only "Judge" mentioned is the one that the men went before.

    Let's hope that if it was the Judge, it was loaded with .45 LC. From what I read at theboxotruth.com buckshot penetration is inadequate when launched from that short barrel.

    The article I linked to is not the original article about the incident. The original article referenced the firearm as The Judge.

    Reference to the firearm is located in the following article, page 4, line 19:

    Someone I now familiar with the case told me that it was a 3" barrel Taurus Judge loaded with Federal 000 buckshot, 2.5" (4 pellets). I can't substantiate this as fact, but I believe it based on the source.
