    Smile Y'all convinced me -

    to not buy the Walther or Sig .22. So I went to my local range to feel sorry for myself. And to try to scare some targets. I did scare the targets a bit, but more importantly, I found in their display case a nice pistol. A used Browning Hi-Power in S&W .40 at a reasonable price. ,(400.00). Consigned by a widow liquidating her "in the great range in the sky", husbands firearm collection.
    Like new in box. No scratches, dings dents or any evidence that it had ever been fired. It's a Browning pistol, assembled in Portugal, semi gloss black finish, 3 dot fixed sights. Magazine disconnect is gone and a very good trigger job had been done.
    2 Browning mags, instruction booklet, and the parts removed from the magazine disconnect.
    Jeez guys, THANK YOU for making me wait! This site Rocks!
    I got a sweet BHP .40 instead of a .22 plinker. Yee Hahhh!

    Now you have a real gun!! JKing, but the .40 is a very capable round, now practice, practice and then practice some more, her late husband would be proud.
