Put a couple years under your belt of shooting all cal. from .44, .357, .38, .45, and .50 and not just once either. Remember when buying a DESERT EAGLE and you've never fired one there's more expenditures than you know.
1. firearm alone costs a pretty penny (dont forget ammo)
2. taking it to the gun smith for repairs everytime you drop it on your first couple times taking it to the range
3. medical charges for the first couple times you strain/ break your wrist
There definitely are better choices than the deagle, but its like an old mustang. If you know what your doing and respect and take care of your weapon you'll have nothing to worry about.
Deagles are nice and get a lot of notice at the range, but make sure its what you want. Look around at other larger caliber weapons and always FIRE BEFORE PURCHASING! happy shopping
