I found out the hard way that my Deagle .44 likes the good 270

grain ammo, and to be flawlessly clean.

But the 240 grain WWB ammo makes a hilarious fireball!

I recently bought a new Desert Eagle .50ae. Without hesitation the most fun of any of my guns...indoors/outdoors/ plinking ever...hands down.
I don't know why this icon gets all the negative flak in forums and reviews from those that don't have one. -amazingly accurate, dependable, jam free with good technique....puts gaping holes in stuff, shoots huge fireballs, oh, and loud as f@&k.
if you know how to shoot it you never get hit in the forehead with big ol' .50ae beer cans...
I'm sorry, chiappa rhinos, mosins and such just bore me now

You want something fun, maybe a little impractical...but not just a wall hanger with no readily available ammo or too finicky to shoot on at least a monthly basis...

You decision can be based on looks...

What would you choose and why?
Good question. i would try and find what the exact type of gun that was used by Clint Eastwood in all the Dirty Harry movies, 44 magnum i think. For 600 dollars you might have to go used. But then again i have all auto's and no wheel guns. Just my idea, have fun.

That was a S&W 29 in 44 mag.

Don't get me wrong, I really like my .44 Deagle. The fireball with cheap

ammo is awesome. But I still love my Mosin. I'd hate to have to choose

between the two.

I think the nostalgia factor of a WWII Mosin is what was exciting about that particular gun to me, but afterwards it was no big deal anymore....I want to try and shoot a Barrett .50 sniper rifle now...

hell for $600 i could probably get 3 or 4 or maybe even 5 working old H&R top-break revolvers, one or 2 in .22, a .32 s&w, & .38 s&w just to complete the collection......hey we are talking about being impractical, so i can substitute quantity for quality
