    Default Whoaaaaaa! This is new....

    Well..., We need to check out this Magnum Research stuff. Anyone ever shoot a DE50? How about one of the big bore revolvers?

    I agree. This is pretty exciting with the kahr acquisition. I still remember my first ever experience with Desert Eagle, I believe it was an NRA show in Seattle. I was looking over the then brand new 357, 44 hadn't been released yet.
    The rep was just a great guy and he broke that gun down completely to show me what it looked like inside. I was very much impressed with his efforts as well as the quality of the insides of that gun.
    What a marketing victory to release that huge 357 and then release a 44, followed by a kit to convert the 357. Some smart marketers there for sure. Shes a big ole gun, thats for sure.
    Almost too large for ankle carry but I'd like to give a 50AE a try, I surely would.

    I've shot the DE in 44mag. Wasn't really my cup of tea...the slide felt so long I thought it was gonna hit me in the face with every shot. Still kind of an interesting gun, and the Matrix would be completely different without them.....Snatch as well.

    Soft shooting for a 44 though, am I right? I thought it felt more like a really hot 45. That is kind of cool, given the cartridge. It was also accurate. If I were hunting with a 44, that would be my choice. I am an auto-loader guy at heart...

    I also sold my Ruger Blackhawk 44. It was an old 3 screw. I have been kicking myself ever since. I really liked that gun. I did not have issues with recoil in that gun. Now a Ruger Redhawk was a different story, sold that one right away. I hated it. I have shot one of MRI's big bore revolvers. It was in 45/70. Like the Ruger Blackhawk, I loved it. I guess those single action revolvers fit my hand well. The DE's are new to me and I really do not have much experience with them other then handling them. They are HUGE!

    I have 3 Blackhawks, rarely shoot them anymore but wouldn't part with them for the world, lot of history with them in my old hunting days. Wish I had a 3 screw. I feel your pain on that one.
    I was never partial to the Redhawk, just not my style I guess.
    I have an Uberti 45 Colt with the Birdshead handle, that one really does it for me, just love the look and feel. I just melt for color case hardening too. Love that look.
    Saw a 1911 that was completely case hardened at a gun show, in the imortal words of Dietrich, it made my britches stick out in front.

    After watching the Hickock45 Knock-Down power? video, I can see why the 44mag is good but seems like it would be heavy to carry. The 10mm did very well. I was very disappointed in the 9mm.

    Since just comparing guns I can never own, how does the STI 2011 compare with the DE?

    Yep! got to try a 50DE at indoor range, it was a loaner, not mine. Very accurate, which was a very big surprise to me. To big for CCW,
    Really would like to do some work with a 1911 10mm.
