Desert Eagle .50 AE world record: 5 shots in 0.8 seconds

Jerry Miculek battered himself firing a short-barreled .500 Smith & Wesson Magnum recently, and decided that that was “all the fun he wanted” at the time.


He must have had a minor change of heart towards firing the half-inch monsters, because now he’s taken out (and taken on) a Desert Eagle in the bruising .50AE on view request.

The recoil of the .50 AE is the huge pistol was a lot less fierce than the .500 S &W Magnum was in the much smaller and lighter revolver, but still not anything I have any desire to try.
