You will love the Browning Hi Power!
I am a rabid Colt 1911 Fan(boy) and had gone 17 years without shooting a BHP until............
Found this sweetheart on Gunbroker for $500 and was reunited with the brilliance of John Moses Browning's P35!
A quick search on the interwebz and you can find a quality Mec-Gar 15-Round Magazine for ~$22 or a nickel plated one for ~$25. That gives you 16 rounds of 9mm protection in the same package size as the 13rd mag and in a steel gun that is incredibly easy to stay on target. I reduced my Mozambique drill times 20% and upped my hit ratio near 35%! And that's compared to my 8+1 round 3" Defender with 47% less ammo.
Yea, I'm a big fan of the P35 (Browning Hi Power) and it has become my winter EDC. Fits all my 1911 holsters (except the custom 3" for the defender) and shoots far past my skill level!
I liked it so much that when a chance to purchase a nickel BHP popped up I jumped on it! It cost a tad more than the blued BHP but worth every penny.
Do yourself a favor and before you buy your next handgun, shoot a BHP in 9mm. I'll let the gun do the sales pitch!
