So after a year looking for a slimmer lighter CCW, you know Kahr or SIG, I am the proud owner a NIB BHP STD Hi-Power. It is slimmer, not lighter, a really great looking dark blue finish. I have been fighting a terrible backache when carrying IWB and have found the problem to be CRESTOR. I have stopped taking the medicine and the backache is gone. So to celebrate I bought the Browning instead of a smaller lighter single stack pistol. I know I am old fashioned, but I think the BHP is a premier self defense pistol. Next week to the range for several hundred rounds of break in shooting. I have been carrying an XD9sc and a Charles Daly Hi-Power, what was a surprise to me in comparing the two pistols was the grip of the Hi-Power and the XD9sc with a Pierce extension are the same length! Both great pistols, but I love shooting the Hi-Power.
