its an SBS, not even legal to possess in CA without the proper paperwork.

Hell maybe not even then.

Man there really needs to be a sticky about the judge.

Supposedly you can go through the trouble of getting one as an AOW. I don't know if anyone has done it, but that would get you around the SBS law. A Judge with a forward vertical grip would be at least interesting to play with.

+1 I agree.

Must go NFA AOW route to get a judge. Im in the process right now. My local FFL has ordered it, trust is set up, just waiting for the arrival so I can apply for the stamp :D

Yes, you can do the AOW route with the trust, but then, the person to whom you PPT it must also go through the motions to get the trust and the NFA Tax Stamp in order to buy it.

The wiki has it: http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/The_Safe_Handgun_List#A_Special_Note_on_the_Taurus _Judge

Taurus, USA sells a revolver called the Judge.

The Penal Code at 12020 says

(c) (1) As used in this section, a "short-barreled shotgun"
means any of the following:
(A) A firearm which is designed or redesigned to fire a fixed
shotgun shell and having a barrel or barrels of less than 18
inches in length.

This definition applies to the Judge, with its three inch barrel.

12020. (a) Any person in this state who does any of the
following is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not
exceeding one year or in the state prison:
(1) Manufactures or causes to be manufactured, imports into
the state, keeps for sale, or offers or exposes for sale, or
who gives,lends, or possesses ... any short-barreled shotgun,

This is not an issue with the Roster. Until Penal Code 12020 is amended, the Taurus Judge is illegal in California.


Most people do not read stickies.
