ive got a DE 50 also. took my concealed carry test with it shot a perfect score back in texas. wonderful fun gun to take to ranges. mainly i kept it in my truck as a truck gun. carried a sig p220 most of the time. they are suprisingly accurate, if you can get past the recoil and muzzle blast, i am capable of hitting bowling pin sized targets at up to 100yards with it. not every shot hits but i can get semi consistant hits. the only real problem with them is the recoil springs and extractor springs are kinda cheap and wear out pretty fast. the safety is poorly located and under heavy use even with loctite tend to fall off. at least mine does but i have also run nearly 10k rounds through it over the years between the .44magnum conversion and the .50AE barrel.
even though there are bigger pistol rounds rounds now in functioning weapons it still attracts a lot of attention at the range. nothing draws it like a big bore semi-automatic.
