Judging from the few bigger calibers (for me) I've shot, I wouldn't think that at night, you'd even have to hit someone with a De50. They'd go deaf & blind just from it being fired.

It needs some live bear testing, lots of it, polar bears, black bears, grizzly bears, panda bears, in various sizes and from various angles.
Panda bears lmao. Even the bamboo eaters catch a round to the skull eh? Haha

I have no desire to own a desert eagle but I do want a gun that is just as outrageous, an S&W x frame. The x frame is very accurate. It's literally a blast to shoot. A home intruder would do some quick back pedaling if he/she faced an x frame. The odds are good that if the grass grows next spring I will buy an x frame.

fyi, the thrill of my de50 lasted 1 year. i sold it to my OIC (lt. mills) in one of my seal team task units. he later went on to devgru(st6,) and used it for putting holes in cigar boats running drugs. worked well.

They left room for growth. The Y and Z frames have not yet been produced.

I think an X frame in .22 LR would be neat. Lets see how many little torpedo holes we can fit in that cylinder...
