Precisely. If size is what you crave - you got options man! I like the Desert Eagle myself, but its all user preference. I do beleive the Desert Eagle's largest size is .50 caliber as well according to this site: http://users2.ev1.net/~lertsman/pistols.html

Don't know of anything bigger than .50 ... maybe some of them on that site but I don't know the conversion of mm to caliber to whatever else.

EDIT: Nix that, found a conversion formula. The .50 caliber = 12.7mm

By all means, link me if you can.

I fail to see the difference between .50 caliber and .500 caliber. They are mathmatically the exact same thing. Obviously that doesn't make the two guns equal because they aren't likely to use the same ammo ... so explain why the Smith and Wesson is better please. BTW, I'm not a big revolver fan.

Magnum a type of gun with bullets which are fired with more power than is usual for a gun of that size
Otherwise, .50 = .50

More powder would probably have that affect, yes. I like the longer barrel too. Make a semi-automatic out of that Smith&Wesson and I'm more likely to get one. As I said, revolvers are not really my things. Might rip my arm off ...

The magnum is just that it contains a high grain in the bullet. That means more powder which means heavier and more kick. I personally don't see the point in having a .50 for a pistol. A 9mm will do the same job as a .45 or .40. The difference being the 9mm has a high velocity round and more control over your second shot.

But since we're talking about .45s here, then it's tough not to mention the HK USP series of handguns. I realize it's been brought up but I'd like mention it again because I like HK

BTW, the MK23 is a USP just up to SpecOp specifications. It's more accurate and durable than the stadard USP .45ACP and has a threaded barrel so a silencer can be attached.

A magnum is a bullet with a bigger case, meaning more powder and a higher velocity.
