    Got a good deal today at the Fort Worth Gun Show on a Browning Hi-Power, a pistol I've always wanted. Belgian manufactured in 1969, near mint condition with some holster wear. The barrel is perfect. Put thirteen rounds through her and she handles like a dream!

    Most excellent, Lon. Most excellent indeed. That does not look over 40 years old. Someone(s) took great care if it. :D

    Great find! It's my favourite 9mm, too bad they aren't imported to Argentina any more. :(

    Cool find! Now we'll be expecting a range report when you really wring her out.

    Nice Browning Lon,I look forward to shooting it next time I'm there.I'll even bring ya some 9mm ammo I still have.

    I went to the show today,all I got was some targets.Nobody there was selling any bullets,and there's usually 2-3 vendors selling rifle bullets for reloading.

    I got there early and it was fine, but two hours later it was PACKED and you couldn't move.
