I like its all steel construction, its grip frame dimensions, its accuracy, and its reliability. Its also one good looking gun. Owning and shooting one will spoil a person.

    J.M. Browning designed it that way, it was changed some 30 years after his death.

    I got rid of my BHP because of the barrel length - 4.75". And because it didn't have a Commander style hammer.

    What I have been looking for is a FM Detective. A New Twist On The High Power



    The Argus 94C is a possibility but it would need to get re-finished from the "get-go".

    It's been years but a friend had one and let me shoot it, now it's over 20 years ago and I still remember what a great shooting pistol it was.

    Bought one new in 1965 for $78 (employee discount). Still have it, never had any problems with it. The sights are poor but at most defensive ranges it's fine. Very reliable! I would put modern sights on it if I was going to carry it but have now retired it to the gun safe. I feel the BHP's are one of the classic pistols, very very well made.

    OK, I have resisted, but here is a bad pic of mine:


    I picked it up new in '94 and sent it off to Novak's a few months later for a reliability/carry package (night sights that are long dead, trigger job, throat & polish with basic tuning and a barrel re-crown, hand matting and blueing the slide) and it has been a favorite ever since.

    I have a really nice set of Spegal grips for it, but use the utilitarian rubber ones for carry as the wood on the left grip started to darken. Looking into some VZ's like I use on the 1911's I carry, but other priorities have kept the Hogue's in place.

    I have started to carry it a LOT more after I had a Garrity Incognito IWB holster made for it. The Garrity not only has a shield for the body side of the pistol, but also covers the weak side safety. In other holsters I would occasionally find the safety getting knocked off by passing through tight doorways or the steering wheel when getting out of the car. This has Never happened again since using the Garrity.

    In the Garrity Incognito:


    Mark does great work and delivers faster than most custom makers. I have bought several holsters from him after as happy as I was with this one.

    Since we have revived this post, I will add the two I just bought. A friend of mine bought a new one in the mid 60s and showed it to me some time ago. It still looks like new today and he paid $110.00 new. So I haven't been able to get that one out of my thoughts. So I did something about it. I will have to use the sellers photos until I actually take possesion which will be next week. But here goes.

    Whoo! Both those look great, got2hav1! That first one is well photographed and the blue finish make me salivate. Please post photos of your own when they arrive.
