1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ^Hate to be the gun nazi but that's not The Judge, but still .410/.45LC

    It's the one I posted earlier, the Thunder 5.

    Indeed. The thunder 5 has actaully been around a lot longer than The Judge but never gained a big following. I've seen them at gun shows for years

    Seems like a really, really sawed-off shotgun.

    I'd guess handgun laws apply as opposed to longarms laws?

    Yep. Legal as long as you can own a handgun

    ^For whatever reasons, shotshell-firing handguns like the Judge have been illegal in California for quite a while--long before our current spate of obnoxious gun laws.

    As a general matter, I would routinely kill any venomous snake in proximity to my digs (although this is a non-issue for me where I live). I suppose they shouldn't be killed in the wild where they control rodents and such, although my gut instinct is to do so anyway.

    Suprised I missed this thread at its inception, but I think I was away at the SHOT Show at the time.

    It is legal for normal people in the free states, yes.

    Now, if it had a shoulder stock, it would not be. Or a vertical foregrip.

    Probably rip the shit out of someone, huh?

    The print ad for it had two side-by side silhouettes. On the left was one with 6 shots tightly grouped in the centreofmass. On the right was one that was basically in half. The tagline was ".45 or .410? You be the Judge". It very nearly almost overtook my distaste for wheelguns.

    It would work wonders with snakeshot.

    I believe that the snakes are unfinished business that you might have from your past. The meaning could be as simple as something you forgot to do that you always wanted to do but for some reason you didn't.

    Yeah I remember this one. Pretty sweet. You gotta love the ability to squeeze off 5 rounds of buckshot in 3 seconds from a handgun (even though the ad used bird load)

    .410 buck has 3 balls per shell, right?

    I honestly used to wonder WTF was the purpose of .410 buckshot. It was like the answer to a question no one asked. That is, until someone made a .410 revolver.
