    not a S&W
    The gun looks as if someone took a pliers to the extractor rod .The tooling is strip out? Maybe to tighten up the cylinder. Lot of play it rubs on the frame. I also have had misfires with 410 shotshells.

    410 LITE STRIKE MISFIRE
    The Roman Legions would have dubbed this weapon Dubious Maximus! S&W has to use a 6 round moon clip or 2 round clip to operate with 45 ACP. That raises the 45 ACP Breech Bolt Face and primer to a height of 0.086"...; above the cylinder charge hole entry surface. 410 rounds load directly into the cylinder and have heights of: more

    Misfiring
    First of all let me say that this gun is great for personal protection in the house. I have always like shotguns for protection in the home, now it comes in a small package for everywhere. I have experienced some issues ...with the gun misfiring. At first I thought it was the type of ammo but after switch to a different manufacture , I still had the same issue. The firing pin does not hit the primer hard enough, it just puts a little dent in it and the next round it works fine........not sure what the issue is. more

    Governor
    Purchased the Governor at Cabela's in Louisville last year. Initially felt awkward but shoots exceptionally well. Less recoil than a government model 1911 and a lot more accurate. Would not recommend for concealed carry.... A Kimber .380 Micro a much better weapon. A must for home defense or a walk in the woods. Worth every cent! more

    The most useful handgun I have owned. Perfect.
    Talk about doing it all. I have owned a lot of handguns in my life and this is the most versatile piece I have every had the pleasure of using. Even though a snub nose it is extremely accurate with 45 Colt as well as 45 ...ACP. Two inch groups at self defense range is the norm.And the shotgun shell or multi projectile shotgun shells make hitting the target a snap. I purchased the Crimson Trace sight model and it is the only way to go. The laser dot is fast and easy to shoot in daylight or low light. The revolver fits in a fanny pack for carry. It will run a trap line. Bag a grouse or protect the homestead. more

    3 Types of Fire Power
    Love this weapon! The .410 shot shells makes a great snake gun on my Texas ranch. The .45 Colt and the .45 ACP (with moon clips) gives the additional self defense capability that could stop any bad guy. Finding a sturdy ...and reliable leather holster was a little difficult, but be resourceful and search the internet. more

    Crisp Trigger
    I have had the Governor for over a year now. It's a fun gun to shoot. I have tried around 10 different .410 rounds, I have found I like the 000 buck the best. It has a tight pattern at 7 yards. Which most home defense wi...ll be with in. Also long colts are nice, might be a good choice if you choose to carry. more

    Best in close weapon around
    At the range there were 4 others, all they could say was"what are you shooting"!!!! for close in need you have enought stopping power for any situation. I love the fact that I can alternate ammunition in the cy...linder. I did NOT like the metal moon clips that came with the weapon, pain in the butt to get the brass out. I did buy some rubber moonclips and that took care of any issue I had. Great home weapon, I will also use for concealed carry. more

    Point and Shoot
    A great weapon for personal and home defense. Because of my physical limitations (disabled veteran), I cross carry, concealed. I use a .410 gauge shell packed with three plated defense discs followed by 12 plated BBs. I ...also use 45 Long Colt Hollow Points (both availabe at Cabelas). The first round is the .410 followed by two 45 LCs. The cylinder holds six rounds so you can mix whatever your choice. I have never had any round to seize in the cylinder after firing. Push the extractor and the expended rounds fall out easily, ever time. A handheld shotgun, what else could you ask for. Be safe! more

    Great all around handgun
    I PURCHASED THIS REVOLVER AFTER i HAD ALREADY OWNED A TAURUS JUDGE. THIS GUN IS A BETTER QUALITY, AND ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO SHOOT ALL 3 CALIBERS (45ACP, 45LC AND 410), BOT JUST TWO. A LITTLE MORE MONEY, BUT WORTH IT!

    Like
    Night sight great, acp a welcome addition to the 45/410 platform of competitors, with no real weight difference for the 6 round vs 5 round. Grip not as good at obsorbing recoil as the judge though.Short barrel showed con...sistent loss of 200fps from advertised velocity for several 45 colt and acp rounds.Finish is great, more
