Does a Governor Outrank a Judge? At first glance, the Smith & Wesson Governor appears to look just like a Taurus Judge. However, there are many notable differences. With its non- glare black PVD finish, the Governor is outfitted with a scandium alloy frame that weighs in at a mere 29.6 ounces. For a handgun also capable of firing shotgun shells, that's extremely lightweight. Another key component of Smith & Wesson's new "Z- Frame" revolver is the precense of a 6- shot cylinder, versus the more commonly seen 5- shot varieties.
In addition to the Governor's cylinder holding an extra round, it has been cut to accomodate moon clips. A "moon clip" is a ring-shaped piece of metal designed to hold multiple cartridges together as a unit, for simultaneous insertion or extraction from the cylinder. So instead of only chambering .410 gauge or .45 Colt's, the Smith & Wesson Governor is also capable of firing .45ACP catridges as well. To complete the package, the Governor is equipped with a snag- free rear-notch sight and a Tritium front night sight.
On an instinctive level, the Smith & Wesson Governor makes perfect sense. The short 2.5" barrel is designed for close-range defensive tasks, not target shooting. In close range deadly encounters, it is far easier to hit an attacker with a quick blast from a shotgun shell than to launch a single projectile at a moving target. And if the intruder has managed to make it past your first 3- shots of .410 buckshot, you still have the option of chasing those with an additional 3- rounds of .45 caliber hollow points. On top of that, moon clips work like speedloaders, so fully loaded spares don’t take up much room in a pocket or purse. This makes the Smith & Wesson Governor one of the most versatile self- defense handguns ever created.
