    I have glimpsed this pistol in several movies. The slide is triangular in cross-section, rounded off at the vertices, with the barrel at the top and the lower section of the slide much wider than the upper section. Anyone know what this could be?

    Desert Eagle.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Dessert Eagle, possibly?

    I liked the first one... The rest of them, not so much.


    If I could afford to feed it, I would love a Desert Eagle. I could probably feed one in .357 well enough. Plus it uses the same ammo as my wheelgun.

    Nothing is better than weapons that use the same ammo!

    Thanks for the replies. After reviewing online images, the Desert Eagle is definitely the one I have seen. Probably Hollywood writers think it's scary looking.

    I too liked the first Matrix movie much better than the sequelae, primarily for the cool CGI rather than plot. I am a lifelong fan of written science fiction, not so much movies, because most of the movie versions are so lame. The Matrix is a perfect example. With efficient nuclear energy available (probably fusion power in a future Matrix universe), the premise of keeping humans as electrical power sources---plus devoting infinite amounts of computing power to keeping them conscious in a virtual world---is beyond absurd.

    Stop thinking. It ruins things. Just like in the Matrix.

    Scary looking? If you ever come across one, ask to fondle it.
    It's just more than scary looking. Next to the .44 Magnum, this is probably THE badass pistol. It is also just as impractical to conceal carry.

    Well, that's just it; is you were to tap someone on the shoulder with it, you'd instantly powder their collarbone. Or, pistol-whip someone and watch their head explode like a rotten melon; a full on Desert Eagle, with the .50AE barrel weighs as much as a M1 Abrams. That's the only reason people can shoot them- the weight keeps the recoil 'manageable'.

    ...It would be so much fun to shoot one of those things...

    I have been on that site many times with no problems, maybe just a transient error?
