My son-in-law has a Desert Eagle, but I have probably shot it more than he has. Both of us have large hands. I say that because this pistol weighs 4.75 pounds and has a very large grip, that must be firmly held in order for the pistol to operate. Although it sounds intimidating, the 50 AE's recoil is not as had as you might think. I thought it was similar to a heavy bullet .480 Ruger. It will do 3" groups at 50 yards if you do your part. I have not shot it at 100 yds.. Hornady XTP ammo is very accurate. It is a well made gun and great fun to shoot. It would be a terrific bear or boar gun. In my opinion, pistols produced since 2009 are more accurate, due closer tolerances. Try to rent, or borrow one, before you buy, which is a good idea with any $2,000 pistol.
