    As you can see from my avitar I have one just like it, and it is a fantastic weapon. 1000's of rounds thru mine, never a FTF, FTE. An excelent shooter, and a natural pointer too. Congrats, and years from now you will be telling this to someone who just bought their first.

    Happy B-Day!

    Where did you finally find the .40?
    I remember earlier posts when you were looking for the Hi-Power.

    Very nice!

    I have it's Brother, also in forty. The P35 is the sweetest shootin' forty I've ever handled, and the Hi Power is the finest fightin' handgun ever created.

    Happy Birthday and many many more Hi Powers to ya'.

    Birthday Browning

    Happy Birthday! I will now quote someone from the Hi-Power forum. Now that you have two, "You need a pair and a spare". I like that, shoot safe.

    Birthday Brownings are the Greatest!

    When I turned 21 my dad let me pick any handgun of his I wanted. I picked the Browning Hi-Power in 9mm. I would never chalk it up to be a carry gun for me, but it is by far my favorite range gun.

    Congrats!

    I actually do carry the 9mm and plant to carry this one too. Probably not in the middle of the summer but fall/winter for sure.
