I never realized how easy it is the shoot the desert eagle .50 cal. This thing has literally no recoil, to me it feels less than a .357 mag. Anyone else have an experience where you were all ready for a lot of recoil then you shoot and it was like wow that was nothing! I mean once I shot it, I was doing one hand shots, off hand shots. It just seemed to me to be a big 3 pound toy. More prepared than most. Less prepared than many.
