Taurus “Cancels” Raging Judge

From a gunsamerica.com email blast: “Please note that we have taken down the Taurus 28 gauge revolver story. They removed the gun from the booth after a day and have decided not to make it.” So the question now becomes did Taurus ever intend to put the 28-gauge Raging Judge into production or was it a hoax designed to spoil the introduction of the Smith & Wesson Judge?
