Need Advice on Browning Hi Powers
For no reason other than the fact that I want one, I have decided to buy a Hi Power, but I need some advice on them. I'm a little surprised that my wife said okay considering the fact that I'm also ordering a Seecamp this week, so I need to act quick before she changes her mind!
From what I've read it sounds like they have made some modifications to the .40s, but the 9mms are pretty much the same as they've been for 80 years.
Is there anything specific that I need to know or look at? Am I better off with a new one or an older one in "like new" condition? Should I consider a .40 or just stick with the 9mm (I don't plan to carry it that much, so I'm not too worried about the extra stopping power of the 40)?
Any advice (preferably from folks who have them) would be appreciated.
