I’ve handled a couple, not for me, the grip feels so big it’s like grabbing onto a fence post.

Well what (if any) other guns do you own? Anything in the Eagle family is pretty obscure, it is not a first, second, or fifth gun. Magazines and parts are hard to come by.

Take a look at CZs, especially the CZ75. The Baby Eagles are based on them, anyway.

I have desert eagle 50AE and no problem shooting it. I love the gun and the looks I get at the range. I can only handle 10-15 shoots out of it at a time. I love letting other people shoot it too .. Love it.

one of favorite range stories that happened in Houston, Texas years ago.

I was shooting at an outdoor range in West Houston one Saturday, and a guy pulls up in a some very expensive Italian Sports car like a Ferrari or Maserati.
Naturally, all of us clunker drivers were impressed and stopped to watch a very large Mexican Gentleman get out of his car with his range bag. He unveiled
a beautiful gold plated Desert Eagle. The gun was as big as he was....not sure of the caliber...44Magnum from way it sounded. Anyway, the guy loads up
a couple of mags and was strutting around like a Peacock during mating season. We all waited in anticipation to see how Mr. Macho could shoot, and he knew
we were watching. He took forever to get his target down range and then proceeded to empty two full mags into the berm.....and not once did he come close
to the target. Needless to say we were all rolling on the ground laughing at this clown as his grip, and gun control was hidious and the results of his shooting session
were just as bad. He brought his target back to the bench and in his shame quickly realized that not one round had contacted the target....packed up his stuff and
jumped back in his $100,000 sports car and peeled out while flipping all of us off in his retreat.

...moral of the story? You can buy a Desert Eagle, but it won't turn you into Arnold the Terminator.

I own a Desert Eagle. I have very large hands and it fits my grip just fine. I bought the .44 magnum XIX and a .357 magnum kit plus the .357 magnum 10" barrel. I take the .357 magnum with the 10" barrel up into the Sierra Nevada mountains hunting Coyote. I find it easier to carry than a rifle, or carbine. The .44 magnum version I find a comforting night stand handgun. I like the DE.

That sounds like the first paragraph out of a Harlequin Romance Novel :yup:
