That's one fugli gun, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to shoot it just to see how the muzzle flip is affected. I bet it's more like the 'push' of a .45 than the 'flip' of a .357 snub.

Have you heard anything about how it's affected by having the sights (if you're using them) so far above the muzzle?

RPD, or Bren. Sexy sexy guns, and both are very unique.

I vote for the 44 magnum.
Other good options might be:
A: S&W Governor 410 revovler
B: Master Piece Arms 45acp/460 Rowland rifle
C: An Ak-47 (if you dont already own one)

I saw one of those Rhinos with a laser sight.

Just a pistol-grip-style deal.

Don't know how accurate it is, though.

I have to admit I used a tax return last year to

get a .44 Deagle, more for hedonistic delight than

practical purposes. It's a lot of fun at the range.

I imagine any pistol you can use as an anti-tank gun is.

If I can ever get it to shoot dependably, I may use it for

a sidearm while hunting with my .44 Marlin.

The desert eagle made me a better shooter. If your grip is the slightest weak or wrong it will jam or ping your face with hot brass. With a proper grip it functions flawless. It really takes advantage of the slightest error in form.

Well....for impratical look for a Savage Stryker, haven't made them for years but ranged from 22lr all the way to 308 in a handgun. I've seen a few of the larger calibres used in long range competitions and not a bad hunting pistol either. Bolt action handgun....whodathought? This is the 501 in 22lr. No iron sights, scope only. Left hand bolt, right hand ejection. Also very, very accurate.

A. Buy TWO Ruger Mk IIIs,and practice your two gun mojo.
B. Buy a rifle squad's worth of M-N's, and start your own militia
C. Buy a nice 12 g side by side, a tweed jacket, and a pipe, practice looking down your nose at those upstarts with pump guns or over/unders.
