    Hi Power 9mm

    I've owned quite a few pistols in the past. But I honestly can say than none have fared well against the Browning Hi Power. To me it feels ergonomically correct, adequate accuracy, and functions flawlessly. I will admit that #2 was the Taurus 92. My Hi Power was stolen and sold on the street. There is a clone out there I'm interested in because I can not afford the $1200 price tag for a new one from Browning.

    Any other Hi Power addicts here?

    Unless Browning started making them again they probably aren't going to get any easier to find. The Turkish and Romanian clones are pretty nice. I own one Belgian Hi-Power and I do like it, but actually prefer the CZ75 and it's clones.

    I have an FEG HiPower clone. It's a darn good pistol. Ergonomic, accurate, reliable, decent capacity, handsome... here's how hard I have to think about how it could be improved. The thumb safety action is a bit mushy - it doesn't snap into position the way a 1911's does. That's about it. If I ever see one in .40 I'll grab it.

    I have a Browning Hi Power that I bought back in 1981.
    I was the second gun I ever bought, after my Dan Wesson Model 15 .357 magnum.
    Those two guns are like prized possessions of personal history to me.
    Don't shoot them much anymore; just pull them out to show friends, and clean and oil them twice a year.
    But every once in a while I'll get an itch, and take them to the range for a workout.
    Great guns!

    Anyone who carries a pistol for every day use which costs over $2000 is................., well, I would question their reasoning power. IF they have to use the gun, regardless of the situation, the gun is going to be confiscated and possibly never returned. One of the reasons I carry a moderate to inexpensive gun. And there are enough of them out there which go "bang" every time you pull the trigger, so reliability is not a consideration. Personal choice? Yeah, but why take the chance of losing a gun of that price? Makes on shoot better? No more so that a set of Talyor Made clubs would make me a better golfer than the Northwesterns I have now.

    I have an FM Hi Power made in Argentina. I traded away a Glock 21 that was too large for my hands. One of my favorite pistols.

    My Browning Hi-Power .40 S&W says made in Belgium, but assembled in Portugal. I was lucky enough to find it about the same time Browning was set to announce ending their production of Hi-Power pistols.
