    Nope, if I wanted an overpowered pistol, I would get a revolver in .454, .460 mag, or .500 mag.

    NOPE!

    I have no use for a handgun that powerful because I have a Mini Draco AK PISTOL!

    If you're gonna buy desert eagle, you have to buy it in .50. I love owning one even though it's expensive to shoot.

    31.75ish and it's already crossed off. 50AE is a handful, and not cheap, but FUN! :D

    And definately an attn getter at the range.

    Bucket list?

    No, it's over there next to my454s, 460s and my 500. About four feet away.

    What the hell is wrong with you people?

    If you want something get it.

    They don't have anywhere near the novelty of the Desert Eagle.

    The 50AE is the only caliber a DE should be chambered in.

    ....just my opinion, of course.

    Here's my brushed chrome model.

    I already have one and it's great!! Living in California I had to buy a 44 magnum but then I bought a 50 AE barrel.

    The gun is very accurate and much more powerful than the 44 mag. It is expensive to shoot but not as much as a 500 S&W Magnum. The 500 is noticeably more powerful than the 50 AE.

    It's a blast to shoot and has a eyebrow singeing muzzle blast.

    I remember singed eyes, so I'll give it a pass.

    I would considered it a classic hand cannon :) I do not have one (well I have the baby version) but maybe someday :)

    I have one in .357 mag.

    Quite reliable and very accurate.

    Hey bac, just a case of all work and no play.
    I'll have to look at changing that :)

    Looks as though you have acquired a few more acquisition's since I last logged on :supergrin:
