    Desert Eagle .44 mag. --Built by Israel Military. Yes, I know there will be a lot of opinions and there should be. I'm just repeating what some articles have said. At 5 lbs. this is not my carry gun by the way, but my favorite to shoot. When firing at a range, after the first shot someone usually yells "who's got the hand cannon?" I have a lot, I mean a lot of firearms. I only occasionally just fire a few. My carry gun is the Ruger Elsie Pea. Photo below (?).

    While the desert eagle has a very high cool factor. The Freedom Arms 454 is my winner for baddest handgun

    The biggest baddest handgun, is that which you can hit your designated target consistently.

    We all have our favorites. My comments were quotes from TV and Movie reports. Such as the Schwarznegger, etc. type movies. The handgun used and displayed the most in those venues. I look forward to your favorites. I look them all up if I have not owned them or do not know about them. Thanks

    Magnum Research BFR in .45-70 would be my idea of biggest and baddest. Don't think I have any reason to justify every owning one but it's definitely a cool thumper.

    Another vote here for a 45-70 handgun. I dont know that it's the baddest, or the meanest, or whatever...but I do know that it gets real quiet when I drag out my 12" hunter barreled 45-70 Contender and and ask..."Who wants to shoot my pistol?" :D

    Geez!! Look at the cylinder on that thing!

    That'd be one scary kaboom if it ever happened. :(

    .600 Nitro Express... doesn't that weigh something like 13lbs? It's so friggin' big the weight tames a lot of the recoil (so says some articles I have read on it). At least the other handgun "big bores" are more manageable in terms of physical size.

    I got the 45/70 bfr 101/2 and the 500 sw mag 83/8 and they both make me wish I was younger and heavier. Hand cast bullets in either are a kick to shoot and I have the cost down to about 30 cents each since they both came with a couple hundred rounds of brass. I took the bfr out today and with light loads of 28 grains of imr 4198 and 405 grains of wheel weighs melted to a round nose no gas check bullet. I hit the 200 yd gong at rattlesnake range on the first shot. I should have quit then but just had to prove it to be a fluke. Lots of fun when it dont hurt the wrist.
