Yeah dude, I read and collected about 200 of them, from the first one well up into the split off of Able Team & Phoenix Force ( all of which I have stashed in storage under years of dust). I still love David McCarter as one of the best fiction characters in the whole series. I still find myself buying one at the airport before a long plane ride.

Aaron "The Bear", Bolan's Armorer, was the reason I started studying modern firearms and how they worked in the first place. Wanted to be the modern day equivalent... LOL

Good times - from a much more careful world of school and a part time job...

I like it! Mine is the .44 Mag version and I carry it with the 10 round extended magazines. First thing you need to carry it is a good holster. I get mine from Ted Blocker, I have a couple of IWB and a couple of Shoulder Holsters, (1 horizontal& 1 vertical) I prefer the IWB with a good belt! I had mine Magna-Ported years back, shoots double&triple taps accurately now. BTW the brass in the face just needs an adjustment, no gun is really designed to shoot hot brass into the shooters face

Y'all are talking some beastly handguns here! Those D Eagles are huge. I have several (wheelgun) 44 Mags and they are heavy... for conceal carry anyway, and you guys want to haul those monsters around? That's OK, to each his own.

You'd be suprised how fast you'll get used to it with a great holster, besides I get 11 rounds of .44 mag, still lighter than 2 revolvers!

Best of luck Jeep - I hope you love it...

I read every Mack Bolan book from the first one until about 1997 or so.. As well as all the Able Team and Phoenix Force books.

You're the first person I've ever come across to reference Mack on the web!

I think the proper name for that is a "Chippendales" holster.

If you have room in your crotch for that huge gun and holster you couldn't possibly have room for very much of anything else. Please don't take offense because I meant it only to be funny and just couldn't resist because you made it so easy.
