I've been doing a lot of thinking over the past few weeks about my next gun. For a long time I've wanted a .454 Casull. I shot a Taurus .454 Casull revolver years ago and it was a lot of fun. I don't particularly care for the grips on revolvers, though, as they just feel very awkward in my hand. I also don't like how much gas comes out between the cylinder and barrel and think that an automatic would be "safer" from that perspective. So, I've been thinking about a Desert Eagle in .50AE. I've never shot one and know little about them so I'm hoping the folks here can enlighten me. I'm used to Glocks and how simple and reliable they are. Are Desert Eagles reliable? Do they break often or require excessive care/maintenance to keep them operating well? Are Desert Eagles easy to clean? Under normal circumstances (barring today's crazy environment), how much do extra magazines run? How much does .50AE ammo run and how easy is it to find? Are there many manufacturers making it?
