Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Here is a video you will want to see, demonstrating the new "JUDGE" revolver, made by Taurus.

It's designed specifically for defense against car jackers.

It's also available with a three inch cylinder for magnum shotgun shells.

The price starts at around five hundred bucks, and you can get it now at any gun dealer.

I suspect it would be best, if you are right handed, to wear it on the left side of your body in a cross draw holster.

If you wear it in a shoulder holster, the car jacker might see it before you have the chance to draw.

But, if worn at your waist in a cross draw holster, it will be low enough to not be readily visible to the attacker, and give you precious seconds to react.


Thank you.

I think rather than play Quick Draw McGraw with some dude who already has a gun pointed at me, I'd just as soon exit the vehicle and let him have it. Literally. Of course, I'd probably have to buy a new windshield. Maybe have some repairs done to the dashboard and upholstery; that Magnum looks like it could make a mess. But rather his than mine.

Hi John:

I sent your tip to a buddy who is a cop-weapon-pro & teaches SWAT guys to shoot & here is his reply. You might take it into consideration. He uses a Glock.

"Robert,

Their quality is O.K. at best. They are severely lacking in the quality control of their product. The consistency in metallurgy, fit & finish, etc., etc., has a wide margin and they are made in Brazil, which is a country that is not known for exporting high quality firearms on a large scale. We do not allow any of their firearms to be used with our agency and I do not know of any agency that does here in Utah.

Greetings:

Years ago, I owned a stainless steel Taurus .357 magnum revolver.

It was a nice weapon, and I never had any problems with it.

But, everyone has to determine that for themselves, as each firearm is different, and each owner is also different.

At the time, I purchased it second hand from another war veteran because the price was right, and I happened to have enough money to pay for it.

Actually, for defense against car jacking, I'm wondering if a short barrel twelve gauge shotgun wouldn't be just fine?

Two possibilities come to mind, which are legal to own:

One would be a modern short barrel twelve gauge pump shotgun with folding stock and pistol grip(s).

The other possibility would be the old fashioned Greener double barrel shotgun shown in Western movies.

According to a dealer at an NRA gun show, it's misidentified by Hollywood as a coach gun, but it was intended to defend the station.

The gun used to defend coaches was a long double barrel shotgun in ten gauge, with one barrel loaded with a rifled slug, and the other barrel loaded with buckshot.

The rifled slug was used to shoot the bandit's horse, leaving the outlaw on foot, where he could be more easily arrested or shot.

(NOTE: It's been a couple of years since I was at that gun show, so my memory of what the dealer described may not be entirely accurate.)

Anyway, if you bought the Greener station gun (the one with the short side by side barrels), and removed the shoulder stock, I think it might be practical to store that inside the vehicle, maybe in a holster mounted on the door panel or under the dashboard.

On the other hand, a genuine Greener side by side double barrel shotgun, either the coach gun or the station gun, is a historical collector's item, so I doubt anyone would really want to modify it.

Anyway, these are some ideas to consider.

Your own suggestions on this subject would be welcome.

Thank you.
