    My 1st gun, .45 Jericho (Baby Desert Eagle)

    since i didnt get any response in general semi-auto/photo section reply, and this is prolly the only gun i'll be buying anytime soon i felt it was worth a repost of my pics as a thread, if its a problem or something sorry, and feel free to delete this post, or the other

    .45 ACP Baby Desert Eagle , havent even broken her in yet, only think i've seen 1 or two people mentioning baby eagles when i searched the forums

    edit: added 5th pic

    Good looking pistol you got there. How does it shoot for you? I don't think there's many people that own that brand of gun. I have never seen one myself even at the gun shows. Looks like it will get the job done and thats all that counts. Good luck with it.

    Baldy: They're pretty popular in my area! At least recently we haven't been able to keep them stocked, except for the chrome ones. I've shot a few of them myself, they are good little guns. Only thing I don't like is the teeny tiny little slide.

    baldy: i havent shot it yet, lol, or any gun, im still a rookie ...i'm going to the range for the first time thursday though

    a newb with a .45? yea i know, people will say i should have gotten a 22 or 9mm to start, or at least tried out some other guns but i think i'll be fine, eventually, lol. my main reason was that i wanted a higher caliber for home defense (i know shot placement is even more important)

    yea i see they arent very popular on the net by avid gun owners but the full sized (50ae etc) versions are featured in movies and talked about in rap music a lot .. i havent heard anything negative on the babies through my searching the net,only good things. Accept for the small/tight magazines but i may just end up buying a different magazine for it elsewhere as a few said they did ... though i haven't had any problems so far as i havent even got a chance to shoot it, lol but it was hard to load the magazine (lots of resistance from spring)

    but yea.. i've only seen goods thing about them and i just love the style / have always wanted a full size desert eagle but they are so huge .. and now seeing that not so many people have them is another bonus (not that they are rare just i like when not everybody has the same thing as me)

    The mags will get eaaier over time. U should load them now, and leave them loaded until U go shooting on Thur. It will help break in the spring to make them easier the next time.

    Well you said your Dad has shot guns a lot, and has been in the service. Just listen to what he tells you and you'll do just fine. Your bound to be excited as I know I would be. I learn a lot from my Dad and Uncle. Relax and have a good time. Good luck.

    yea, my dad was in the military but he forgets some of the smaller things as it was 40+ years ago (he was a MP i think - never any actual combat) and he hasn't fired much since, but I suppose it's like riding a bike ...

    oh and yes, i'm very excited, wish i coulda chose a day before Thursday but had work 4 days straight then had stuff to do tues/wed , but i'll live thorugh it , lol

    Actually, the Jericho is a high-quality clone of the CZ 75. IMI isn't known to produce bad products. You made an excellent choice. Here's a good article on your pistol:

    As for the mags, the spring probably needs to take a set. Keep them loaded when not in use.

    yep i am keeping them loaded, and i saw the site you linked before i made the purchase (google search led me to it) ... oh and theres even more history to it on wikipedia.com

    yea i heard IMI was a good company and that it was used for their military/police in israel, i dunno

    oh yea, wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jericho_941

    I think that the Baby Eagle ('Jericho') is an excellent pistol and very smart-looking. However, I must admit that I prefer the CZ pistols because of the placement and direction of the safety lever; they seem more ergonomic.

    I want one of these so badly. Isn't the .45 a semi-compact? How small is it exactly?

    Nice pistol. Ive got a full sized IMI 9MM that I bought in 1996 and it shoots so sweet. Out of all my handguns my wife is the most attached to this one. the trigger pull and balance is unmatched. And for the price get two of them.

    Reviving this thread since I just now saw it.

    Nice gun! I've heard only good things about the Baby Eagle. I'll have one at the end of the month- can't wait! Congrats on your purchase, even though it has been some time since then.

    Yeah I love the IMI's. My logic is this, either the Israeli's make/buy quality arms, or they get pushed back into the sea by their neighbors. Since this hasn't happened after multiple wars, I figure they have something worth buying.

    I have a .40, and that little baby eagle will put the slug right where I tell it too.

    one, you are better off starting with a 45 than a .40 cal smith & wesson which is what i started with,plenty of muzzle flip and recoil. although having started w/the .40 after that the other guns seemed easy.
    concerning the baby eagles, i like the guns although their compact isn't that small.
    p.s.,
    i didn't realize how long ago this thread started till just now!

    Thanks, yea i hear 40cal has a snappier recoil, but so far all i've ever shot is my 45 baby eagle

    I did get a Kel-Tec PF-9 recently but i've been very busy, not to mention broke, and haven't gotten to the range yet. Here's a side by side pic, along with my knife.


    I'm moving to Arizona in September and will finally be able to carry (open carry for couple years, until I can get concealed permit) instead of just having them at home/range like I do now. Oh, and I'll be sure to post a range report whenever I get to break in my PF-9.
