The Smith & Wesson MODEL GOVERNOR…Presented By Our Old Buddy Hickok45

Ever since I published an article about the Taurus Judge, your responce was phenominal and I really appreciated that. But there have been those of you who mentioned the Smith & Wesson Model Governor, so I thought I’d put this out there for all of you who’ve asked about that. One thing I do want to mention, I don’t get any “payola”, or “kick-backs” from any of the companies I spotlight here at Great American Outdoors, I do what I do simply to entertain you, my readers.

Now, there is a big difference between the Judge and the Governor and that is, while the Judge can fire a 410 & a .45 Long Colt, the Governor takes it up a notch and fires a .410, a .45 Long Colt AND a .45 ACP.

Smith & Wesson has this to say abot the Model Governor:

Versatile. Lightweight. The Smith & Wesson Governor revolver puts six rounds of customizable response under your control. Load with .410 2 1/2″ shotshells, .45 ACP or .45 Colt – alone or in combination with the included moon clips* – and hit your target in every situation. Plus, it’s from the leading expert in revolver manufacturing over the past 159 years. Now that’s confidence.

*Each Governor® is packaged with (2) 6 round and (3) 2 round moon clips for use with .45 ACP.

A moon clip is a ring-shaped or star-shaped piece of metal designed to hold multiple cartridges together as a unit for simultaneous insertion and extraction from a revolver cylinder.

I’ll place the specs beneath the video for you.
