//SPCL: Weapon Of The Day- Desert Eagle .44

I recon if I'm going to do it right, might as well throw some guns into the ever-increasing mix of segments I'm coming up with. Today I introduce you to Gun of the day, which I have to say I'm not really that much familiar with (Since I'm all about the Kung Fu) but with the help of our Gun Specialist "Gunrunnerhell" on tumblr, we'll be able to pull it off. 

Desert Eagle 44 (Another example of the somewhat uncommon dual-tone stainless steel versions offered by Desert Eagle. Notice the “S” in the serial number. This is an indicator that it’s an original dual-tone stainless steel Desert Eagle and not a regular version that was refinished to look like one.)


Using a .44 magnum casing, and a gas powered rotating bolt mechanism, this thing has the recoil of a semi-automatic rifle (since those specs are usually used in those).This makes D.E. the gun from hell, something Dirty Harry would've easily sported since it's that powerful and has an eight bullet magazine.

 

Dirty Harry...or maybe someone just as awesome?
The history of the Desert Eagle is pretty confusing so strap on (No Kinky). It was developed by a bunch of Americans then Given to Israelis to manufacture then given back to another bunch of Americans who I assume got tired and hence gave it back to the Same Israelis again to manufacture. Got it? It's okay, just dial back and read it again. 
So Magnum Research Is the diabolical company behind this baby and since then have even marketted a smaller version that looks somewhat like a cross between this and  Glock. 
But enough of my proffesional vernacular- let's see what our weapons consultant has to say about this:

Thanks Gunrunner.

Why would I recommend such a thing? Well, I personally wouldn't get one of those (I'm all about the Kung Fu) unless I just wanted to give tough guys something to really think about. However, if you're a large figured man living in Central America or Central Africa then.....fuck it, everyone should get one and invite girls to see it.

Peace.
