I’ve fired this cannon a few times, and really can’t think of a practical reason for owning a Desert Eagle.

Sorry not sorry to all the fans and owners of this overbuilt blaster but I get asked my opinion on firearms daily.

“What do you think about the Desert Eagle?” one aspiring gun owner asked me on Facebook. Don’t ask questions you don’t want the answers to.

.50 action express ammo? Do you really need .50 coming out of a handgun? How small are your hands? It’s kinda like taking a sledgehammer to brass finishing nails. Just overkill to the max. Actually, the Desert Eagle chambers the largest cartridge of any magazine-fed, self-loading pistol. Yet, this offers no additional utility and if I need a second man to carry my ammo I’ll take an M60 machine gun over the Desert Eagle.
