    I used to carry my BHP several years ago. I now carry an XD45. I prefer the .45 to the 9mm. But when it comes to shooting, I love the BHP. With the exception of my .22, I can shoot a tighter group with the BHP than any of my other pistols. I plan on keeping it til I die.

    Great looking pistol FIRE310, what grips are on your BHP and where did you buy them?

    thanks . They are cocobolo grips, I will have to see if the makers name is on them, When I got the gun it came with 3 sets of grips: the original ones, these and a hogue wrap around. They still have a price tag of $50 on the inside of the panel, I'll look this weekend and see if I can find out.

    Heres the kicker , you will all be pissed when I tell you what I paid for this gun. I traded $200 worth of stuff for it , came with all original stuff, 3 factory hi-cap mags and the grips... This was my lifetime score

    Its in such great shape that I'm having a hard time deciding wether to just keep it in the safe as an "investment" or carry it...

    Carry the pistol. It is heavy so you will need a good belt and holster.

    I have bought, sold, traded so many I can not keep count. Everyone should have at least one. I picked up my silver chrome 9 about 15 years ago, and it shall not go anywhere except my son when I am gone. Many have tried to talk me out of it, but, this one stays.

    Haven't read the entire thread so this may have been covered: Any of you seen the newest version of the adjustable sight BHPs? Very nice, they "buried" the rear sight into the slide and were then able to use a lower front sight. Browning's website has a picture. I've seen exactly one of them in person, and really liked it.

    If I could afford to buy another handgun, it would definitely be the Hi-power. One of the best handguns ever built.

    Until about two years ago, I never looked twice at the Hi Power since I, literally had no use for the 9mm caliber. You see I am a die hard 45acp fan and prefer most guns that it can be shot from, specifically the 1911.

    I was at a friends house who is the 9mm guy everyone wants to know. It seems that he has just about every gun made today in that caliber. I decided to give it a try.......well the rest is history. I have officially fallen for the Hi Power and now have three of them. I also bought two different CZ75's in 9mm, and as good as they are, to me the Hi Power suits me better. Both CZ's have been sold to those buddies of mine that like the Double Action/Single Action combo guns. I really like the single action and thumb safety and the lines of the gun are similar to my beloved 1911.

    Here are my three Hi Powers.
    An older one, either Mark 1 or Mark 2 made in 1977.


    and two Mark 3's, one blue and one hard chromed. I have changed the sights from the adjustable's to Trijicon Tritium Fixed Night Sights.
    The only thing needed for evil to exist is for good men to stand by and do nothing!!!

    A lot of my old buds used to. But most carry a Glock of some sort, or a S&W J frame now a days.
