    So I went to the range today and went though like 200 rounds of 9mm and some other assorted stuff. When I get done I was browsing the used case and saw a gold desert eagle. Pictures don't do the thing justice. Its like a cartoon gun. I'm talking wiley coyete fucking huge.

    I'm sure its fun to fire but did it really have to be so big?

    When i was 15 at the crime lab for an intership, they let me inventory the gun closet (i wish i could do that now again). They had a annodized sligtly purple DE, with gold accents. At the time, i was like WOW.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    Not in the same way that a DE is. The slide is like a big U in that the slide ends in two seperate pieces at the front. It doesnt go all the way to the front of the gun.

    I have a DE and I thought that was an odd comment to make about guns.

    Arent Brettas similar?

    the bolt rotates, thats why the slide can go back, the extractor also throws shells straight at your right cheek
