    Money and no clue, good start to the end.

    Conceptually it's not a terrible idea but who the heck was the guy/gal who wrote the Fox story? I won't even get into the misspellings but the comparisons and claims are...I'm sorry, this is a bad joke.

    Carried by so many Judges into the courtroom it's called the Taurus Judge...c'mon. That shoots Colt .45...actually .45 Long Colt and yes, there's a difference. And it's FULL of crap like that.

    A bunch of stuff that, if you don't know how to use it will get you nowhere, give you a false sense of security and, in very short order be removed from your rapidly cooling corpse.

    And thank goodness it comes with a bunch of AA batteries in a one-handed dispenser. :rolleyes:

    I went back to look who the author was..."Ballet dancer turned defense specialist"...'nuff said.

    Given the flashlight uses AAA batteries, have you figured out what device the batteries are for while the other hand is busy? You know... inquiring minds and all that...

    That caliber is ".45 Colt". There is NO 'Long' in it's name. But I would choose a more widely available caliber. My local Wally's doesn't generally have .45 Colt or .410 shells. Plenty of .38 Special, .357 Magnum or 9mm Luger though. That ammo loadout won't last long.
    Where's the holster? I don't plan to carry that plastic case and have to open it to access the weapon when needed.
