While I've made no secret of the fact that I'm not a fan of the 9mm, the best balanced automatic I've ever shot was the Browning Hi Power. I've owned four of them in my life: two 9mm, one Inglis (a Canadian copy of the Hi Power built during WWII), and a later model Hi Power in .40 caliber. Except for the last one, I've eventually sold or traded them away for two reasons: (1) they were 9mm; and (2) the triggers felt sloppy when compared to that of a 1911. Although a purist might object to the .40 Hi Power, I liked the caliber and the trigger was a lot better than on other models I'd owned -- I bought it used, so someone may have had a trigger job done on it, or the new guns just have lighter triggers than the old ones. I was sorry that circumstances made it necessary to sell that one. It was one of the first, if not the first, of the high capacity 9's. It felt good enough in my hand that even though I don't care for the caliber overmuch, I kept going back to 'em. So why do I rarely see this gun mentioned on this forum? Where are all you Browning fans? I'd pass up a table full of modern 9mm's to get to a 50 year old Browning.
