    Meh, all the way up until the point where he shows you he can use the damn thing. I've seen a few fellows at ranges who are shaming people using considerably smaller-caliber handguns, and even if the follow-ups are a tad slower it's not like that first hit isn't going to count.

    Generally speaking though, I'd be concerned about folks armed with this in battle, only because that means they've got a lot of financial support.

    I've never seen a DE shooter who was good at anything but extreme slowfire with the thing. I guess there may be some shooters somewhere who can use the thing in realistic combat shooting, but I've never seen one (and I competed for over a decade in practical shotoing, work in the firearms industry, and live in what is probably the US capitol of the "gun culture"). Of course, some people say space aliens have visited the Earth, but I've never seen them, either. Maybe I'm just not lucky.

    Have you ever put the DE on a shot timer versus a realistic defense caliber - 9mm, ,40, .45, etc.? Even the best .50AE shooter will be much better with a more reasonable choice, and "combat shooting" has always been defined as a combination of accuracy, power and speed. DVC, right?

    Not disagreeing at all; my point was more that if you really wanted to, you could train yourself to be pretty good with the DE. I'm a 9mm person myself, which will be an inherently faster gun to shoot, but sometimes a follow-up just isn't needed.

    I dunno, I question the reliability of the DE in combat. I have one in the .357. One of my least favorite handguns.

    The handgun I'd choose wasn't presented as an option. I'd choose either the H&K Mk 23 or the USP Tactical, both in .45acp, of course.

    My first choice woud be a H&K USP in any caliber.

    My last choice would be a DE.
