I have one mainly because several years ago a friend was selling some of his collection and he offered it to me for a price I couldn't turn down. I shot it some when he owned it but I haven't since it came to live here. Its a good conversation piece. People that have only seen them in movies can't wait to hold one but most are not interested in shoot it. Guess they don't know its one of the softest shooting 44 mags around. It is like holding a 2x4 but a lot of the guns I own are just here because they are different. Like someone else said. to each his own.
I like the looks of that Desert eagle, brushed chrome? looks nice and tidy!
My lgs had a used one about a year ago that was gold plated tiger striped and it was 50ae. If I would have had the spare cash I would have bought it. But I didnt have $1900 just laying around that day. Maby some day just to have one.
NO DE. If you have to have a 50cal and a lard butt of a handgun all in one then by aone of s&w 50sw. You can shoto lighter loads to hotter loads with out slide cycleing issues and have a better hunting handgun. But I would not buy ether. By a 44 or 454 revolver even a glock 10 or dw 10mm in a more manageable size and a 45/70 marlin rifle or 12ga slug gun if power is still needed.
I think they are awesome guns but I would never own one. Semi automatic hand cannons are not my cup of tea. I shot one in 50ae and 44mag and enjoyed that one magazine a piece and can say I shot one. I almost felt like I needed a tripod for those guns, lol. Definitely a iconic gun
I wouldn't buy one, too big, too expensive and not allowed on either of the range clubs I belong to. All that being said, if you gave me one I'd take it and use it for a trade in on something I really wanted. good luck
You don't have to remember the truth
