I totally punched the bear in the face, but I've decided to elevate myself and start using tools... :D

I've seen both the Baby Eagle and the full Desert Eagle up for sale at Turner's Outdoorsman in CA, but I think both were in .45. Frankly, I wasn't impressed by either. The baby is just another midsize .45, while the daddy seems too bulky and heavy for anything practical.
I have noticed that in the history of firearms, the designs that are proven by the test of time as most successful are invariably the full-size ergonomic military models chambered for a mid- to high-power cartridge. The outlier babies and jumbos may be remembered fondly by enthusiasts but are nothing more than oddities and evolutionary dead ends.

Nope, the Desert Eagle doesn't come in .45
The Desert Eagle comes in .357 magnum, .44 Magnum, .41 Magnum and .50 AE.
The one Turners sell is usually the .44 Magnum. We can't buy a .50 AE DE here.
Although, we can get a .44 magnum, and buy a .50 upper along with magazines.
That is legal, just cant buy a .50 AE DE outright.
Have fun on your quest. They're accurate pistols. Clunky, heavy, not ergonomical at all but still fun to shoot.
