Just think somebody breaks into your house and they run into you looking like this:
Just make sure he isn't firing blanks, and this will probally work wonders.
BTW according to the website these guns really do exsist in mexico but are made on special order only. Also come in a double shot bra model.
Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
Ding, ding, ding... if he isn't going to learn at least the basics of safety tell him to forget it. I imagine that many firearms accidents occur with guns that were bought, put away and forgotten.
Besides, if your state requires any kind of test or class, taking a class with a "Deagle 44" would be expensive and tiring, if not painful by the end.
If he really wants to do this tell him to try out a Bersa Thunder 9mm, a Taurus PT111 9mm... or either of those in .380.

In terms of "biggest and shiniest", this is the best I can do. It is a S&W model 629 in .44 magnum with 5 inch barrel. The ammo is 240 grain Winchester Ranger hollowpoints, which use the same bullet design as the old "Black Talons".
No one likes to look at the DOUBLE barrels of a 12ga coach gun looking back at 'em...

Remember a gun isn't worth its weight if the bullet misses! Better to use a brick or a hammer than to have a gun and not be trained in how to use it. A brick or hammer has far less chance of causing injury to an innocent person than a bullet that misses its target.
"Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
SUPERSOAKER. He can tell BG it's loaded with urine so they'd better PI$$ off! Sorry, I don't mean to be crude....but this sort of thing PI$$E$ me off. Do your buddy a favor, do NOT let him get his ccw! He'll get killed or kill somebody innocent. Do US a favor, don't support the 2nd Amendment in this manner. It is going to lead to a tragedy. Get folks like your friend to join NRA/GOA/SAF/CCRKBA and get some good publications like America's First Freedom (NRA) or Gun Week (SAF). That's a serious form of help. This course of action is like pulling the pin on a live hand grenade and handing that grenade to a little kid waiting in line to participate in an "egg toss."

If he wants a gun that will intimidate so that he doesn't have to use it then he is sadly mistaken and will certainly pause when called to act.
He needs training more than he needs a shiny gun.
He needs a lot of training and attitude adjustment, he isn't beyond salvation I'm guessing but does need to learn some basics.
Nobody notices what is pointed at them with any great clarity, it is either a gun or not a gun. It is a binary concept.
If he insists on getting a gun in the interim, and it is his right to do so, then advise him to get something with a light/laser attached so he doesn't inadvertently make the breakfast news for shooting one of his kids getting a glass of water in the night.
