    I've never shot a DE, but I would imagine one COULD shoot it one handed as long as their hand and wrist muscles were strong enough.

    I own one and yes it can be shot one hand... as long as your not wanting to hit anything more than 15 feet away in a six inch ring and don't expect a follow up shot. It is and always be a fun gun, not intented for practical use by any means.

    I've had a desert eagle 50ae for around twenty years and yes you can easily shoot them one handed. The recoil is about the same as a hot loaded 357mag revolver.

    If you want shoot it accurately its like any other handgun takes a lot of ptractice. You need a lot of arm and hand strength to keep the torque from rotating the pistol and pelting you tween the eyes with spent brass.

    My preffered grip for all handguns is two hands whether it is a 22lr pistol to the desert eagle. More accurate and controlled shots.

    The perfect self defense system is a pair of DEagles in twin shoulder holsters with extra mags taped to your ankles...:rolleyes:

    just watched that vid. that guy is a retard. if you shoot a DE without eye protection your gonna go blind from bits of burning powder and metal debris landing in your eyes. its a gas operated pistol similar in function to the ar15/ak47. the big difference is the DE has no enclosed upper reciever to block debris hitting your face.

    after a range trip with it you end up looking like you got freckles from all the burnt powder and residue.

    they are highly impractical for anything cept fun at the range.

    I've got a DE 44.

    NOT the pistol I practice "weak hand" drills with.

    Even if you can fire a DE 50AE single handed, what practical

    purpose does it serve? Sure, SOME people can do it.

    SOME people can walk a tightrope over Niagara Falls or wrestle 20 foot Alligators...
