"The "Taurus Judge ® " is so named because of the number of judges who carry it into the courtroom for their protection. Capable of chambering both .410 2-1/2" shotshell and .45 Colt Ammunition, this amazing combo gun is ideal for short distances - where most altercations occur, or longer distances with the .45 Colt ammo. We have finely tuned the rifling to spread the shot pattern at close quarters or to guide the .45 cal. bullet to the target. Fully customized with fixed rear sights, fiber optic front sights and Taurus Ribber Grips®, the "Taurus Judge" is one decision-maker that lays down the law. "

... I think if you miss with 2 shots, you probably wouldn't make it with 3 or more (eg: you're probably getting less accurate from adrenaline and recoil, and the critter is going to be moving rapidly by then).
Its really true. I was with a friend in the city (in the U.S.) and there was a poisonous snake in his driveway which he wanted killed. I shot it with my .380 and the first shot hit, but didn't kill, just badly wounded. The next 6 shots, from 10 feet away, left a bunch of marks on the driveway but totally missed the snake. (I have mixed feelings now about shooting poisonous snakes, especially since the ones in Georgia and the one species here aren't exactly deadly poisonous, but it is an example of how adrenaline really ruins ones aim...)
