There's a scene in "Snatch" where the Vinnie Jones character flashes a chrome-colored Desert Eagle .50 at a bunch of hapless con men who are only carrying replicas. It's right after he tells the bartender, "A pint of the dark stuff, landlord" and sits down to drink his stout. Anyway, ever since seeing the flick again on DVD, I've wanted to check out some info about the gun, because it's nominally bigger than the Hollywood-iconized .44 Magnum, which makes the scene even funnier, if you think about it. So I did a Google search, and most of the DE.50 crap that comes up is "skins" for shooter games. But buried on page 4 or 5 was this gem, which told me a lot of what I wanted to know, and then some. Ask The Rabbi, landlord.
