I've never had any desire for a taurus judge revolver that's become all the rage, but I could really go for one of those smith governors like you have there, as it gives the option of using .45acp in addition to the .45LC round.

Thanks Bill....

John, the Gov is fun to shoot! Good range gun just shooting with buddies. Wasn't really looking for one when I held it at my LGS last summer. Told myself, what the heck. Like you said, it shoots 3 different ammo. $525 OTD was a big plus also.

How well does the Gov shoot the 45 acp round? Is it very accurate?

Dad has a Judge, and it is a piece of junk. I can kill more snakes with my snub 38 and reload shotshells I make. The Judge will scatter a 410 load all over a 4x8 sheet of plywood at 7 yds.

Love the R8 and the j-frames. I'm a certified j-frame junkie.

Nice collection!

JD, the gov shoots decent...nothing to write home about. It's more of a fun range gun but could be used for SD if no other options. Recoil is worse with the 410 but the 45C and 45 is mild.

Thanks FUBG!!!
The R8 is far more accurate than me...I love j frames too! Just don't have enough bones to buy all I want particularly now that I'm also starting a HK collection...did get a beater police trade-in M10-10 from Buds last week.

Nice R8. Found one and wanted to trade my Colt 45acp on it and they only wanted to give me like $600 on a $1200 gun. I passed. It is on my want list.
Now the Gov is my BOB revolver in my bag! You can expand your list and add the 45 GAP, the 45 Schofield ammo to it. Since I bought mine, the price has gone up on that puppy!
Now my favorite J-Frame is my 649. Which has been replaced with my Shield 9. But still a great gun.
