    Ugliest pistol I've ever laid eyes on

    Click on image to enlarge if you dare! I'd be afraid to shoot it in fear that I may catch something. Then again, it may have a place in an African Safari Trophy room?

    A gallon of thinner might take enough ICK off of it to trade for something I could afford to buy ammo for.

    I'm pretty sure that thing has chickenpox, and anyone who handles it is definitely developing shingles.

    Just guessing by looking at the rest of the picture, but I doubt she's ever shot it.

    The things people do.....<sheesh!>

    All the more proof that when the aliens do come, it will be to talk to the dolphins and cockroaches. Notice those two species never get anal probings?

    So, what's wrong with "a little camo"? That would make a most excellent "Barbecue Gun".

    I also believe it to be a air soft pistol. My wife showed it to me and asked if we could do that to her pistol when she gets it. (She wants a Ruger lcr). I was rather horrified.

    Titanium Gold with Tiger Stripes Got some major bling goin on.

    I have two friends that own Desert Eagles in .44 mag and .50AE(not these patterns I must say): I found to my surprise they were a pleasure to shoot with excellent accuracy.

    Yep, with all that weight and a gas-operated action, they don't kick very hard, even in the largest calibers. For a short time, I owned one in .357 Magnum (it was new and different, and I was in the mood to trade). In .357, it was a total pussycat. Big boom, hardly any recoil, and the cases landed in a 3 foot circle about 6 feet to my right. However, it was too heavy to carry as a woods-walking pistol, you couldn't shoot unjacketed lead bullets in it (due to the type of gas system), and the .357 was generally considered a good caliber for starting your children shooting in Alaska (where I lived at that time). Based on these limitations and lack of a dedicated use for it in that area, I traded it off several months later.

    I still have the holster I bought for it; made of black nylon, it looks like a small sleeping bag when strapped to your belt. It could be used strong-side, or cross-draw, and I often used it both ways on any given hike. If you left it on one side too long, you'd develop a pronounced list, kind of like an unbalanced ship.
