Default Good Fortune, a Hi Power

Well my Father gave this jewel to me today. It's in 'near new' or 'pristine' condition in my estimation. It's a 71C series, which means manufactured in 1971 and 100% Belgium. If I'm wrong on that....please correct me. Like I say, I'm pretty fortunate.

Very Nice Sonic!

I feel like the 4th grader shouting "you lucky duck!" because your secret docoder ring arrived before mine.

Looks like a beautiful piece and coming from your dad makes it invaluable.

Tack

That's a sharp looking gift.

The BHP is the AR15 of the pistol world. They'll make almost anyone look like a competent shooter, chicks dig 'em, and they aren't bad to look at either. Maybe the most widely issued service pistol in the history of planet Earth...OK, honestly I'm not sure about that "fact"...but I'd imagine if it's not #1, it's damn close.

Enjoy.

You must have missed it Ben. It;s a Browning Hi Power....does look a little like a 1911...especially the first pic.
