Thanks. One of these days I'm going to send it off for the Hard Hat Treatment. Got too many other projects to do first though.

personally ive never liked the hi-power. the gip feels like im holding a square hunk of wood. totally not comfy to me. top it off with a mag safety and its not a gun i care for. they are good looking and stylish. ive fired them they shoot well enough but i like the cz75 better

I also have 2 both 9mm, they are inexpensive and reliable, I have several thousand rounds down range without a problem.
I believe they are a bit large for CC.
So, I recently purchased a Tarus .40 if I'm shooting what I hit I want down, I feel the .40 has a bit more stopping power. The Tarus is a bit lighter, and I carry more rounds (double stack)

Thanks and thanks. The nice thing is I was able to land each the BHP Practical and CZ for bargain rates. I don't have more than $500 into either one...probably have more than $500 in ammo through each though. They're both sleek, super accurate, and built to last.

I don't know how I missed this post but then saw the date and realized it was posted on my BD.

I was obviously predisposed with some other gun-related activity.

I think a Browning Hi Power section is a great idea and have decided to start a crusade to make that happen!

As you all know, I’m an avid apostle of John Moses Browning owning several Hi Powers and 1911s.







The Hi Powers are an often overlooked treasure in today's poly gun world. I think the gun and it's followers justify their own section here on the FTF.

If you agree, post your support here and let's see if the old canebrake is right!

I'd support a Hi-Power forum. Mine was my first handgun and I'll be buried with it. (I'd upload a photo bit there's a 29kb limit to size and at that file size you wouldn't be able to see it
