    I just laid away a Magnum Desert Eagle in 44 magnum. One turned up near here in Titanium Gold. What do you think about concealed carry? I was thinking a wheelbarrow and a tarp.....doc:rolleyes:

    I was going with riding a remote control horse to hide the Eagle.

    Nice, .44 mag is a beast! A buddy has one .357 mag, shooting it is a riot. Get her paid off!

    Went to a gun show today and bought some guns. I got a extremely affordable J P Sauer .44 magnum revolver, a Bersa .380 (for my sister), a Thompson center contender .223, and a Desert Eagle .44 magnum. Monday is going to be a good day at the range.

    I like all of those choices except the Bersa. I used to own one and it was the biggest piece of garbage i ever owned. It wouldnt even feed an entire magazine without a failure to feed or fire. Sent it back for work twice and still the same problems. I ended up trading it and some extra cash for a Ruger SR9c.

    it can happen. nobody can make a perfect product everytime. that's why they have warranties.

    No kidding. Had it worked better, i would probably still be using it as my EDC. It wasnt a bad platform, just one that wasn't wanting to function reliably.

    I CC my DE44 in a small satchel.

    It's comforting, when I have abandonment

    issues. Weighs a ton, tho.

    You'll love the fireball from WWB ammo...

    I remember an old movie "Hickey and Boggs" I think where the antihero carried in a folded newspaper. I have a Ruger single six in 22lr which may be my favorite gun, but the first one I bought was a Colt Anaconda in 44 mag, I always shoot it one handed like Matt Dillon.

    Love the lycanthropic nickname.....doc

    Love my DE in 50AE. I had a cross chest rig that I bought a long time ago for it but didn't really like it. There was an upholstery shop where I used to work and I brought the holster and some nylon webbing to them and they made me up a nice thigh/tactical holster. Works pretty good but certainly not concealed. I'd think for concealed carry, a shoulder holster would work.
