Hey, PeterNap! Half_life thinks a Judge is a big revolver!
Shhhh. Don't tell him about Ruger Redhawks and Alaskans, nor S&W 629s.
You should be fine, HL. There are plenty of revolvers of a similar size and larger that are just fine for carry. For example, a 4" S&W .357mag six-shooter is plenty big, slightly longer than a 1911 if I recall. So are the Ruger .357s with 4" barrels.
Judges and Defenders have been around for a while now. And, its not like they are a hunting revolver. If a cop says something about your Defender, he woulda said something about anything else you were carrying, too.
