    New Browning Hi-Power

    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.

    Good for you! By all means, take it seriously! It's OK to be old fashioned. Especially since they haven't really come up with anything better for shooting 9mm. The Hi-Power is my favorite 9mm pistol over everything else.


    Show photos if you can.

    Hi-Power Photos

    Yes photos, I am still unpacking computer equipment including my camera. If you can stand a phone photo I will try to post some pictures I took with my phone. I have been shooting a Charles Daly Hi-Power for nearly 2 years. So when I bought the new Browning, with wood grips that are too thick for my hands, I swapped the thinner rubber grips between the two pistols. So I will try to post a cell phone photo of both pistols. The Browning has a spur hammer and the Charles Daly has a round commander hammer.

    Grip Swap

    This may show the two Hi-Powers better. By the way I have 3,000 rounds through the Charles Daly pistol and consider it to be an outstanding clone of the Hi-Power pistol. I wish the Uncle Mike grips that came on the Charles Daly were available. They are not so at some point I plan to buy a set of black Micarta grips for the new Browning. A fellow shooter has Micarta grips on his Hi-Power and they are even thinner that the Uncle Mike's rubber grips.

    Congrats!

    I would love to own a second Hi Power in .40 to go with my .40 "Practical". I came late to the BAP, but I've come to realize what a fine handgun it is after years of carrying/shooting something else.

    Part of the problem is, you never see one for sale around here. I only know three people that have owned/carried one daily in the past twenty-five years, and only about five people that own one, not counting the forums. I probably know 100 Glock owners/shooters.

    Love BHP's and congrats on joining the HP fan club! They are a great natural pointing pistol and their grip is fantastic. Aslo like the manual thumb safety as I am a 1911 guy. Practice drawing, swiping down on the safety and engaging your target till it is ingrained in your head.

    Where is the pic?

    New Hi-Power

    Man oh Man,

    Who knew there were that many BHP guys all over the place. Thanks for speaking up. I am very pumped to shoot the new pistol next Thursday. It is forecast to be an 80 degree day. A great day to break in the Hi-Power. More photos coming soon and a range report.

    Here is a pic of mine before I installed a C&S sear, tactical safety, removed the mag safety and slapped a set of Spiegels on it. Holster is an HBE COM III. Fits my hand like a glove and conceals as easily as my 1911. Congrats again!

    Don't worry about getting sued over the mag safety. Have a reputable gunsmith do the work and your trigger will improve and mags will drop as they should if you have to do a speed reload.




    HBE COM III. Your HP would love this for a home!
