just watched that vid. that guy is a retard. if you shoot a DE without eye protection your gonna go blind from bits of burning powder and metal debris landing in your eyes. its a gas operated pistol similar in function to the ar15/ak47. the big difference is the DE has no enclosed upper reciever to block debris hitting your face.

after a range trip with it you end up looking like you got freckles from all the burnt powder and residue.

they are highly impractical for anything cept fun at the range.

I've got a DE 44.

NOT the pistol I practice "weak hand" drills with.

Even if you can fire a DE 50AE single handed, what practical

purpose does it serve? Sure, SOME people can do it.

SOME people can walk a tightrope over Niagara Falls or wrestle 20 foot Alligators...
