... there are at least two semi-automatics that have gone into full production. One is the beefy gas piston operated Desert Eagle pistol, which is currently manufactured by Magnum Research here in the United States.

The other one is the Coonan, a recoil-operated semi-auto pistol based on the M1911 so many American shooters know and love. Built here in the U.S., it was my understanding that this pistol (using a design that predates the Desert Eagle) went out of production in the mid 1990s. But lo and behold, at SHOT Show a couple of years ago, I learned that Dan Coonan, the original designer, had since teamed up with Dave Neville and Gordy Davis to form Coonan, Inc.

Desert Eagles in .357 can be found for less money than the larger calibers; I know of one for sale in Kingman for $675.

Coonans always seem to bring big money. I know I'd like to have one but have never found one in my price range.

Well that oughta be easy for a genuine son of a bitch.
