    Oh also, what would be the best way if I wanted to change the colors on the sites from white to something else? Was thinking Jig paint or something?
    And, for more added safety, because I purchased this weapon not only for range use, but for home defense, is there a common way to mark a loaded magazine to easily identify and separate it from an empty one? Or is that a bad idea?

    Clean and lube your gun before you shoot it. Shooting it straight out of a box is not a good idea though lots have done it, I know I did, always learning as time goes by.

    As for loaded mag vs empty I think you should be able to tell the weight differences in your gun. Rule number one is IT'S ALWAYS LOADED whether you think it is or not.

    Yea, I almost went to shoot it out of the box, thankfully the range was full as it was sunday and great weather.
    I am going to order a cleaning kit today I think or purchase one in the city.
    And yea, I have to be honest the first time I shot I was so nervous I was shaking a little bit. Safety is always #1 for me, and always will be.

    Good because the rails might be dry. You don't want metal to metal wear. I use a dab of grease on all metal to metal contacts and that includes the hammer where it hits the firing pin. I use machine oil on the moving parts like the trigger and the hammer pivot points. Also a little oil on the middle of the recoil spring rod with the slide locked open. The action will spread it.

    that's all there is to it and in no time you'll be a pro.

    Yea, it seemed as thought they were a little dry, i practice field stripping it a couple of times but thats it. Wont until I clean and oil/grease it.
    I have to say although this gun is a tad on the heavy side, i am loving it more and more, cant wait to fire it.
    Its too bad I live in the city, I am planting a garden this year and our area is covered with rabbits! Pellet rifle it is.

    Oil? Swabs? cleaning spray?
    Any suggestions please? I will probably order from amazon, are any of these just above acceptable? Amazon.com: gun cleaning kit

    TIA
    I know some will not like one but, Get some Glock Grease for it. They make really good lube that last a really long time. Just be sure to do a full take down and a complete cleaning and lube before you go shoot. The DE is a great gun and the only one of its kind that works worth a spit for it Cal. The same model in a different cal should be great to with less wear and tear over time considering there is not as much pressue and force with a 9mm as there is with the .44. Take care of it and i'm sure it will be a great gun for you. Be sure you clean it EVERY time you shoot. This gun is picky like that.

    Roger that, thanks for information, I guess I will still need grease. I ordered this and it arrived today. Remington anti - fog protective glasses, Luger snap caps, and a Hoppes Pistol cleaning kit with storage box.

    These arrived to day - Amazon.com: Peltor Tri-Flange Ear Plugs, Green, 3-Pack: Home Improvement

    Loving them so far. I head the whole headsets, and these have a wire between them which makes them easy to keep together and easy to see. Very comfortable although with this style to have to lift your ear to get them to fit, but a great fit due to this.

    Finally took this gun out today.
    Put 200+ rounds through it without a single issue. Targets were dead on for a factory install, and was able to keep my accuracy at both 7 and 15 yards. Minimum recoil and a very smooth action. The trigger also VERY smooth. I would recommend this gun to any beginner or experienced shooter as I took out an experienced shooter and he also loved it. He let me shoot his .40 smith and wesson and well as his .357 but we both agreed we loved my .9mm more. Of course its comparing apples to oranges but we both said my gun is fun to shoot!

    Good on ya mate. All that prep paid off. Congrats. This Sat I will get my Sig Sauer P250c 40sw. Can't wait to try this baby.

    EDIT: I canceled the Sigma 40 for the Sig. The waiting list is too long, badly.

    Thanks man. Let me know what you think of the sig. I really had a hard time aiming with the .40 he had past 15 yards.

    This is very true, although I have to say, after shooting a wide range of guns, i feel like this Desert Eagle 9mm (baby eagle) it has the recoil and accuracy of a .22, but the firepower of a glock without the sight and recoil issues.
    I would recommend this gun to anyone, although I think my next gun will definitely be either a .45 or a .357 if not a compact CCW

    I would also like to add, there was two men firing both a glock 17 and a glockC at the range today, and although I didnt fire either, i must say i am happy with my choice. The glocks seemed to be much louder, much more kick, and from what i could tell the action was a lot rougher, as well as a not so smooth trigger.

    It'll smoothed out after shooting for a while. The Desert Eagle has been around for years and they got popular.

    Yea, after just 200 rounds my baby eagle has gotten very smooth, much easier to field strip and safety check. The accuracy got better and better as the clips went on, as I would assume is the same as the glock. I am just glad I didnt purchase the glock over this gun, i know thats an oxymoron to most of you

    So the Glock has become the standard to compare guns to?
