I like the Desert Eagle XIX, but then I have big hands. I have the .44 magnum, and the .357 magnum kit. I find it easier to carry in the outback hunting than a rifle. Both calibers are really tamed by the weight of the DE recoil wise. For what ever reason, my .357 magnum magazines hold ten rounds. Shooting 11 rounds of .357 magnum I find to be a real kick, and a good way to go through a lot of ammunition in short order. I do use it for a nightstand gun and feel quite secure.
