Anyone have personal experience with the Public Defender?
There is a lot of stuff on the web out there, positive and negative, and a great deal of it appears to be speculation. A lot of folks don't like the weapon based on it being a Taurus, some folks think the 410 bore is not an adequate self defense round, some people think they're are better tools for the job, and it looks like a lot of the negative criticism comes from folks with zero actual experience with the weapon.
I know MTripp was thinking of picking one up a while ago. I'm curious if he or anyone else either owns or has at least operated this weapon, and what their overall impression is of it.
My main question is, would you trust your life to the Public Defender, or does it live up to the negative hype?
Additionally, has anyone had any experience with the 410 self defense rounds that Federal and Winchester have started making?
