    Out of my mind, brb never.
    Would about the only practicle thing to use a DE for, be hunting? I mean like say Grizzly Bear hunting with a small scope, or somthing along those lines? Im just curious because a retard would carry it for tacticle reasons, but I could see its use in single shot accuracy, such as bear hunting.

    Desert Eagle has no use.

    Yea thats the general consensus, its just sad that a handgun with so much firepower, has such little applications in the real world. Ala not Counter-Strike.

    people hunt hogs w/ them, but only b/c they feel stupid for buying them and they want to reassure themselves that they're not retarded.

    If I was going into bear country I would be carrying a revolver in .44mag, .454 Casull, or .500 S&W as backup, not an unreliable heavy ass Desert Eagle. It's best use is in Hollywood where it shows up good on the screen and causes all the CS kiddies to be like OMG HE'S GOT A DEAGLE BEST GUN EVER!!!!1!!!1!

    .454 is a crazy ass round. I fired it in some revolver at the firing range, and it about blew my arm off. I would say it would stop a bear dead in its tracks. Damn.

    I'd much rather have a .500 S&W to hunt with, rather than a DE. The DE has no purpose at all. I :love: my baby eagle though.

    a friend of mine has a dad that hunts boar with a .44 magnum revolver.

    Id rather have a .44 mag or other rounds above in a revolver then the desert eagle. But yes, you can hunt with anything your accurate with.

    The old joke still applies. File off your front sight before you carry a pistol in bear country...

    It hurts less when the bear sticks the pistol up your ass.

    Mines a 9mm w/o the rail, but it's still the favorite thing i've got in my bag right now. I'm looking at getting one of the steel framed compacts now :o
