Oh, man! I really want one... Can't afford one, but want one. I never cared much for them in the pics i've seen, but there's some great photography on here that finally does them justice.

It's a shame I don't own one, considering my family history...

But I never got attached to mine. I think the main reason was the feel and me being accustomed to the 1911 pistol. And certainly the 45 ACP. I honestly must admit, I have never really have been a 9mm fan. With all the great ammunition available today it is only a personal preference at this point and good for smaller CCWs. In the past with the older ammunition it was a result of performance issues I was have been aware of. Carried a 9mm on the street for years but still not impressed. As far as the Browning High it was just never my preference although, I respect and admire a high quality firearm which no doubt it is! Wish they could have made it in 40 or 45 later.

They did. Here is my Belgian Hi Power Practical in .40 S&W. I love the gun but have to admit that I HATE the grips. I need to find a replacement but haven't gotten around to it yet...
