    Browning High Power as a Primary CCW

    Being a 1911 person, I miss the grip safety and the positive "click" of the thumb safety. I have one being done with a custon thumb saftey and I am hoping that I like it. Any of you guys/girls carry a BHP?

    I do, and I love it. Mine is a Charles Daly BHP clone, and it has a large safety with a very positive "click" at each extreme in the range of motion. They can have very good triggers, and since you are used to cocked-and-locked, you'll love carrying it. I think it's one of the best platforms for the 9mm round. I'm carrying mine in a Bianchi OWB holster that really makes it easy to hide under a light jacket/big shirt.

    Got any pics of your rig?

    I have a BHP and while it is not my EDC I do love it. Have another on the way to my FFL right now.

    <------Was my EDC until last week.

    I put it back in the safe so that the wife and I could carry the same platform. I love the Hi Power in the .40 S&W caliber and I'm hoping the wife will decide to go with a .40 Hi Power after she's been shooting and carrying a while.

    Right now I carry a Glock 19/26 combo.

    Love the HP, though for some reason the grip frame is difficult to conceal on my body type (6'0", average build, 190-200lbs). Maybe I just need to find the right holster.

    Yeah! Now that's a beautiful pistol.

    To me, the BHP is the top of the line for semi auto pistols. IMO, it's one of the finest pistols ever made.

    Reading this thread and thinking about how much I love my BHP has made me wonder. Why has no one made a compact BHP? Everyone and their mother has taken the 1911 and chopped/cut/tweaked it to oblivion, why not the BHP?

    The "Detective Model" had a shorter slide, but I don't think I've ever seen a shorter frame on a BHP.

    The Cylinder&Slide safety is a little more "positive" than the factory safeties. I carried one for a while, and probably will again.

    Browning Hi-Power 9m/m

    Yes, I own a '95 model BHP, made in Belgium assembled in Portugal;
    with the adjustable rear sight, and factory wooden grips. Its not my
    EDC either; but over all, I like this gun. However, it doesn't fit my
    hands as well as my Smith & Wesson 39-2 or my West German
    SIG-SAUER P228.

    Lately my carry has been about evenly split between either a 1911 or BHP. Only time that will change is when I'm in places that have predators bigger/more deadly than humans present. A Glock 10mm will get the 'Bear Country' detail.

    I'm one of the heretics who actually prefers the Hi Power in .40 S&W over the 9mm parabellum original flavor. The .40 shoots just as fast and well for me in up close drills (I checked with my timer) as the 9mm.
