    A BHP is right at the top of my "Guns to Get" list. Stephen Camp's website really has a lot of great info on it. I don't think I'd have any qualms about carrying one.

    Carry the Hi-Power? I carried mine as a duty weapon and never, ever doubted either its accuracy or its reliability.

    I love my HP and carry it regularly. I have owned it for almost 20 years now and knock on wood, have never had any major problems with it. It shoots straight and it is a trusted friend. I have other newer guns that I carry at times, but I find myself reaching for the Browning quite often.

    Love my HP. Carry it frequently. Use it in local competition regularly and a pleasure to carry and ultra dependable. Would be the last handgun I would sell. They are just magic.

    Not sure what you meant by this, Chris. Can you amplify?

    I've never shot the BHP, but saw and handled one at the Harrisburg Gun Show today. It was smaller then I expected, and lighter. That's without a mag, of course. The grip was slightly fatter than I expected, but not uncomfortably so. In fact, it felt quite comfortable, and "right" to my hand.

    I love my .40 HP MKIII but I won't carry it cocked and locked. The safety on mine goes off safe WAY too easily for me.

    Ahhh - well it's down to only single safety between me and a problem - the 1911 grip safety makes me much more comfortable con 1, that's basically it.

    My BHP safety is actually very positive and secure but - even so - I confess I am more at ease these days with DA/SA - this last three years.

    smousefan,

    Take your BHP to a qualified gunsmith, have him silghtly deepen or enlarge the dimple, in the frame, where the thumb safety plunger seats. you might even have him replace the spring behind the plunger to help solve this problem.

    I carry my BHP in a Tucker HF1, OWB, covered by a XXlarge print tshirt currently. I am hoping to pick up one of Mr. Tuckers Heritage IWB holsters in the future.

    Beware of that website :)

    A few months ago I spent a couple nights going through all the hi-power articles on Stephen Camp's site. IF I had the $$ I would've bought one the next day..Great reading.

    My primary carry is a BHP 9mm In a IWB Bianchi holster. I love everything about this gun.
    My world is the only one that counts

    I haven't posted much on the hipowersandhandguns.com site but have read a bunch of stuff on their site and it is a great place.

    As for my HP and its safety, I probably won't have anyone mess with it. It will most likely become my bedside gun (currently a s&w 36). It is also one I own for the simple pleasure of shooting. I have to admit, I think it feels just a bit better in my hand than my Kimber Pro Carry, but I do SHOOT the Kimber better.

    I love my BHP I bought in '66. It has been 100% reliable and more trustworthy than my ex-wife. I would never part with it.

    I have a HiPower, but it isn't a Browning. The FN I purchased has the SFS safety system. For me, this is a great addition to an already perfectly designed platform.
    The SFS takes all the condition 1 "worry" out of the equation.
