I've looked at a couple of them at the local Cabelas, they're definitely big heavy guns. I'd guess they go around 5 pounds but I'll bet they're a lot of fun to shoot.

If I got one I'd have to go .50AE if for no other reason then to shake up the guys at the range.

Local indoor ranges do not allow .50 cal.

So, having a DE in .50 would give me a very expensive paperweight or doorstop.

I know, they have no practical value, but they are pretty cool nevertheless.

I think I want one in 44 mag. I love the gold ones, but they are just too expensive.
I agree that they probably don't have a lot of practical value, but it sure would be a blast to have one.

Although, I have bought a number of things that have no practical value but sure are fun!

My brother was a gunsmith at Magnum Research and I often would meet up with him at a local range and shoot their various pistols and revolvers. They always had to test fire any gun they repaired and put x amount of rounds through it. They didn't mind if I helped because they paid for my discounted range fee and cut his time in half so they came out ahead. I got to shoot free on their dime. Win / Win for everyone. I did not like the .50AE myself. It would often break my wrists and eject casing into my forehead. But it was fun pulling the trigger and going $2, $2, $2 knowing it wasn't my money! :D The .357 and .44 were fun. I really liked and want to this day a BFR in .45-70. That baby made everyone else in the range take notice!:eek:

My son has a .45-70 and it is really fun to shoot. Despite the size of the round, it isn't harsh at all, IMO.

(He really wanted to take a Moose while living in Alaska, but sadly didn't)

Just watched the video again! You would need your big boy drawers on to fire the .50 a lot. I would shoot about $20.00 worth in it looks like fun.
