    LOL you can carry it jeans n' t-shirt and that's quite an accomplishment. But, I'll guess it has the same problem as any long barreled handgun. When you sit down the muzzle gets pushed up. To avoid this, long-barreled afficianados use high-ride holsters. I noticed that your holster has a strong forward cant and maybe that's your way of avoiding the high-ride ... high ride on a gun that heavy might not work out too well.

    How does it work out?

    Awesome. But probably not practical as a carry weapon. That thing would get heavy and uncomfortable.

    But if he is happy with it then more power to him.

    Thanks Lance, It actually works out very well. At 3 O'clock you can sit down and the holster doesn't push up. It really doesn't even touch the chair, with me anyways. It has a good amount of cant, for that reason and for easy draws with long barreled firearms.

    Thanks mkh, With a proper gun belt. It really is comfortable. I wore a .50 all weekend at the NRA convention. He wore his .50 sunday of the convention.

    It looks like an extreme forward cant similar to the Ayoob Rear Guard by Mitch Rosen.

    I have an ARG for my 5" 1911 and I'm about the same height as the guy in your pics. It's amazing what you can conceal with the proper gear.

    I think that is a BIG piece of iron to conceal! I am tired just thinking about concealing that thing all day.

    Excellent job of cover on that beast though!

    Make sure you have a good, stiff, gun belt for that beastlike powerhouse.

    I couldnt imagine using a Desert Eagle as a carry piece. But if you can pull it off, more power to ya.

    Scary? Heck, he looks OK to me. If you ever move to Texas, come on over and bring the hogleg and some Beer & Nachos....

    Thanks for the posting. Heck, with a good holster, gun belt and Perry suspenders, I can carry my heaviest 1911, reloads, etc. no worries.
    Doing the same with a DE is not a big stretch in my opinion.

    That's a heck of a sidearm...a little overkill, but I guess that is what you'd want to do if you were presented with a gunfight.
