    Save up for an actual Browning Hi Power or settle for a Regent BR9? The Hi power is the only pistol I crave. Limited funds may determine my choice.

    Very much agree with you. The main reason I am a Taurus fan is because I didn't want to carry my Browning.
    Ten years ago I took my Browning to a two-day course at Front Sight. Got a lotta raised eyebrows.....from instructors!
    Decided then that I needed to get an everyday gun, so I got a Glock 17.
    Then I got my CCW and wanted a smaller carry weapon; so I got a SCCY CPX-1.
    Then I wanted a second carry gun in case the first was lost, stolen, recalled, or taken into evidence. I wanted a different make than the SCCY so that a recall didn't take them both out; so I got my first Taurus PT-111 G2.
    Very impressed with that gun, and Taurus in general (except for their 738 TCP).
    I'm a practical kinda guy. I buy function over glitter. I drive a Toyota Corolla, even though I could afford a so-called "better" car.
    Yes, a Mercedes Benz is a better car than Toyota,.....but it's not FIVE TIMES better! Yet it costs five times as much as a Toyota
    I like Toyota, and I like Taurus!

    (But I'm glad I bought my Browning back in '81 before it got expensive)

    I have two Belgian Browning High Powers left; one T series and one from 1988. While many collectors will vastly prefer the T-series, I do not see any difference in built quality or shootability in them. My son had a Hungarian FEG copy that was equally well made and that sell at a fraction of the cost. While they shoot well, they take a back seat in my safe because for fun at the gun range, I prefer the Swiss SIG P210s, Custom Colt 1911, or revolvers for their superior accuracy.

    I bought a beautiful C series Browning from Kruizer a while back...99.9% condition, I'd say. It was such a beautiful gun, that I bought another one that has a bit more wear on it so I'm more likely to shoot it. It might be my best shooting handgun.
