    Being nearly impossible for me to hold (much less shoot) one handed, it's even easier for me to pass on.

    More fun to see historic movies that display firearms.

    And they don't even provide a box of ammo so you can shoot it. Because if you shoot it, it will not devalue it. Because it's not really a ''collectable '' per se.

    And if that train of thought is correct then it is drastically overpriced (IMHO), but not as bad as all (emphasis on, all LoL) the Ducks Unlimited so-called ''collectable'' guns & gun stuff I guess...

    Take your pick: too much historical clutter going on in such a small space, and of course too much money!

    That and it's the wrong gun! I mean a Desert Eagle as a representative firearm for depicting U.S. history???

    You would be better served with something from Colt, S&W, or Ruger, done on a much more smaller scale, or done on a series of guns instead of trying to cram it all onto one gun.

    I was expecting a rifle. It was the only thing that came to mind when the thought ran through my mind that it would have to be something big to even put history on.

    I generally - almost to the point of being a rule - won't even slow down for pictorially commemorative firearms.

    Now, THAT perverse presentation and with particularly (for me) onerous depictions would have to be, well, I can't even come up with a number stupid cheap enough for me to look at it.

    Then too, it comes from one of the states almost actively exporting their own catastrophic points of view on the Nation. Here, the irony of the presentation is bad enough before getting to my unwillingness to fiscally support those states' economies.

    Todd.

    I have finally seen a pistol that is uglier than a Webley.

    I'm good with history with my US military rifle.

    But yeah, that's pretty hideous. On a choice between that and a beat up milsurp, I'd take the milsurp every time.

    $10k? Pass. I don't even like the Desert Eagle.
