So I was thinking of getting one, but want some opinions on the gun. If you have one, do you think they are reliable, etc? what selection of .50 ammo is commonly available.

My friend had one. Shot it so much he broke it... Twice. Reloaded his own .50 AE also. You had to see this dude to beleive it. HUGE. Used to put 600 rds in it before it would break. Manufacturer couldn't beleive he put that many rds through it. Finally got tired of sending it off to get fixed. Basically it's built around the .44 frame which works just fine unless you're a masochist as he was. Sadly he died in a car accident 2 months ago. RIP. I was the last person he talked to. But thats another story.

It's a piece of crap. I don't own one and never have but the indoor pistol range I go to I've observed about ten of them. They are big and loud. That seems to be their attraction. I wasn't impressed with the skill or expertise of any of the shooters who brought them in. About half of them brought in women to impress. I've heard they aren't accurate but the shooters I saw were so lousy I couldn't tell accuracy. I'd say most of the users had problems with jams and malfunctions. It's an oddity, not a serious weapon.

Ive had a DE .50 for a few years. About 1000 rounds through it. I like it. I shoot 4" groups at 100yd, iron sights, from a bench. It takes some getting used to, and not as fun as the Ferret50, but it is fun nonetheless.
