[Excerpts] A former Windsor police officer who was fired following an investigation into an incident in which police say he held a .50-caliber pistol to a woman's head and pulled the trigger has been reinstated by the state labor board... Windsor Town Manager Peter Souza said Tuesday that the board voted 2-1 in favor of Adams...


A call from his girlfriend's phone had been made to his wife's phone and Windsor Officer Dennis Adams was out to take back control of his world with terror. He called his girlfriend and told her to meet him or he'd distribute a sex tape he had made of them. She went, and at some point he came up behind her she says, grabbed her, and put the mini-canon to her head. We don't know what he said to her or how long it lasted. Don't know what kind of grab or hold that was - but she says he pulled th trigger.

Adams was fired after it was INVESTIGATED, but no reason is given for his reinstatement. I grabbed some bits and pieces about the gun:

...Due to its large size, the weapon is not practical for concealed carry or most self defense situations... Muzzle Flash - This has been a discussion topic for years.... the fireball is just immense... lights the whole room... The Desert Eagle is unusual in that it uses a gas-operated mechanism normally found in rifles... the rotating bolt and locking mechanism bear a strong resemblance to that of the M16 series of rifles... it allows the use of far more powerful cartridges... For a more detailed look at the Desert Eagle variants as well other .50 caliber and other large semiauto pistols, revolvers, single-shot pistols, etc., see Duncan Long's book, Hand Cannons...
