Last night, taurususa.com was down for most of the evening. It’s back up now. And get this: the home page sports a big glossy picture of the Raging Judge [screen cap above]. AND it’s still in their “What’s new for 2011″ brochure. BUT it depicts the Raging Judge as a .410 shotshell/.45 Colt/.454 Casull caliber weapon. It’s that last bit that makes it a ragin’ Cajun . . .
If you thought the Taurus Judge line couldn’t get any better, you have to see this. The new Raging Judge Magnum shoots the .454 Casull round in addition to delivering the same popular combo revolver of the original Judge models, and packs a giant 6-round cylinder. Besides added capacity, the Raging Judge features the famous red “Raging Bull” backstrap for added cushioning and will be available in both 3-inch and 6-inch barrels.
So the gun wasn’t a head fake, but the 28-gauge caliber was. Curiouser and curiouser . . .
