My favorite classic arm. A graceful, reliable, potent arm. It was John Browning's improvement over the chunky, clunky, 1911.

I have to disagree, as great a gun as the high power is i personally shoot better with the 1911 if its a good 1911, all 1911's and highpowers by comparison the 1911's were better guns

The BHP is called "The King of the Nines" for a reason.

This is a quote from a friend and member that I had the pleasure to shoot with recently;

It's a Zen thing where machine adapts to man. Personally, there was no adjusting to it. It fit my hand perfectly, pointed naturally, and put holes where I wanted them to be. Imagine your dog is happy to see you and stuffs his nose into your palm while you're lying on the couch. That's how the BHP greets you. When I say that I'm a "Non-Gun-Guy", Cane will tell you that I did not know what I was picking up. I've qualified and carried in the military, hunted in my youth, but I've always viewed firearms as tools. As much as I like the one I carry every day, I never realized the artistry possible until I shot the High Power. It's exponentially more than just a firearm.
Here's my Browning Hi-Powers in 9mm:





Get one.........or two.

I agree that its about what fits your hand better but ive shot colt, remington, kinber 1911's and several high powers every time the 1911's did better
