I finally got myself a new hand gun. I'm thrilled to have it. I'm going Saturday to shoot it. What do you guys think?

I have always wanted one. The price tag has kept me from getting one.

I'll take it!! LOL Thought I was looking in the classifieds for a second. I hear the barrels are interchangable 357 mag. 44 mag and 50 AE. I've shot the 50 AE and fell in love. Good snatch and hope that it provides you years of enjoyment!

They are interchangeable, those are about 4-500 a piece.

I know a guy with an all stainless one. I like yours better. The gold and stainless ones are too flashy. I haven't test fired one before but he said you definitely want to wear ear plugs.Lol

Haha. I remember taking $20 from a guy with one of those one day at the gun range back in the early 90's. I was shooting my SA Super Blackhawk and he had his DE. We got to talking and I ended up betting him I could put 6 on target faster than he could. Beat him by a solid second. That being said, I still want one.

It is not a fast shooting gun...I've not seen one video of it being shot fast. That guy was just cocky.

You are correct. After watching him shoot, he didn't know how to control the recoil either.

Personally, I like cocky guys on the gun range. I can usually goad them into a bet I know I can win.

Wanna hear something that made me sick? Someone broke into my pickup a while back and stole my Baby Eagle. It was one of the original Jerico models. 9mm. Beautiful. Thing was they didn't bust out a window or nothing and truck was locked. Police said whover did it used one of those flat tools used to open car doors. Truck was dirty and you could see where they used the tool. Left prints that the police ran but nothing came up. Officer said there was gang stealing guns. In order to become a member they had to steel a pistol and turn it into the gang leader. Gun is probably in Chicago by now. Yes, I know. Should have known better than leave it in the truck. Normally I don't but I got home late from the deer lease that night and was pooped and forgot. Live and learn. Got a nice 10 that weekend though with my bow.

Man, the sad part really is, your insurance probably didn't cover it. I'm sorry that happened.

Yes, the video I was watching of the guy shooting 230 yards, took almost a full second after firing for the bullet to hit. It's a big 240 grain bullet , in a slow gun.

I have the same gun, first generation though(the safety is slightly different). Bought it new in 87 I think. Ive shot 1000's of rounds through it. Don't shoot wad cutters, they will clog the gas ports. Only jacket bullets.
