i regret trading my 357 desert eagle for the 50AE. it was a very very fast shooting gun with almost no muzzle flip.
JonM said all the important stuff. My DE44 is a range-fun/hunting
caliber match for a .44 Marlin carbine.
Bear in mind if you reduce recoil, you're going to also reduce power
at the target, and it seems overly expensive to buy a cannon, and
reduce it to a lighter gun...
Wouldn't a Beretta 96, or 92, be more sensible at the outset?
Lower power ammo won't work well in a DE44 or DE50. Been there, done that,
