So for a pistol-ignorant person like me, the "feel" was very important; it feels comfortable & fairly safe (grip & trigger safeties). I'm still not 100% down with the fact that i couldn't find an all black one, but i didn't look very long, and the green/black color doesn't seem to affect how the target looks after 13 rounds. At least try one. My paws aren't massive, but they aren't stubby either.

That baby eagle is just a CZ, I would rather get a genuine CZ....

I have a Desert Eagle 50 cal and feel hurt by your comments as they just add pain to a poor impluse buy. All the same it is fun to shoot every now and then!

Check out the S&W M&P 45, I have the full size model but heard the compact verson is as sweet.

I wouldn't get too hurt over the Desert Eagle 50 purchase. I can't even begin to count the number of times I bought things on impulse. I have a safe loaded with 44 Magnums that were impulse purchases. Some of them haven't even been fired. You already have a DE 50, so enjoy it...

I'll support the XD45 idea. I bought one a few years ago and I absolutely love it. So much so that I bought the sub compact version in a 9mm(I personally hate 40's). It's a very easy to shoot gun and reliable as a rock. Check it out.

I'm not sure why everyone is poo-pooing the Baby Eagle. It's very different from the Dessert Eagle, comes in a polymer frame, full size, semi-compact, & compact models, and the fit & finish seems to be right there. I agree with the OP that it feels WAY comfortable in my hand, and I'm not sure why a slide-mounted safety is bad??? And around here it retails for about $550, I might be able to do a little better.

I wonder how the price compares now, nearly three years since the last response to this thread? Maybe you could research this for us...?

Desert Eagle! - General Handgun Discussion

I picked up this "Baby" Desert Eagle about 3 years ago and it's been an excellent performer. An all steel frame and slide .45 ACP for $500.00. This is an excellent concealed carry weapon, and is very rugged and dependable. This gun is nothing like the larger, gas operated .50 A.E. behemoth. This pistol has been the choice of the Israeli military for years. It comes with nice 3-Dot sights, and the gun can be field stripped much easier than a 1911, and almost as easily as a Glock. I'm thinking about picking up another one in 9 MM as well.

lonyaeger, not much research to do, it's currently sitting in the dealer's case down the street for $550. Polymer frame, 40 S&W, full-size.
