While meandering through the sporting goods, I laid eyes on this neat little contraption, the Rossi Circuit Judge. I was initially surprised; I didn't think we'd see a revolver-style shotgun anytime soon, due to the restrictions of revolving cylinder shotguns as "destructive devices". Further reading reveals that the .410/.45LC version is being marketed as a rifle. I wonder if they had to get a sporting purposes exemption for the 28ga. . .
Anyway, I've seen some interest in this style of shotgun in the past, so I thought I'd throw it out there. The gun I saw looked to have a removable choke, so it might not pattern too bad with shot. Might be a decent hunting gun, with a quick anti-snake option.
I have no interest in owning one at this time, but I'd still like to see how it does on the open market. Does anyone have one? If so, how do you like it?

Be interesting to see how they're received, as time goes by. I think the .410/.45Colt guns are a silly gimmick -- but who knows, these may catch on, just like those short shotgun/pistol thingies of dubious value have.
The 44 mag looks nice. I'm not sold on the revolver shotguns though.
This rifle is odd... ...I guess they might look cool to some people (under the age of 12 mostly) but again they're not going to be a good as a shotgun or as a rifle and as somebody pointed out there will be the chamber blast right in front of your face. Revolvers are a pain in the butt to clean too...
...to sum up: I'm not a fan.
