Browning Hi Power

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

Nice. Unfortunately I'm a lefty so choices are somewhat limited. Current fave is SIG P320X compact.

Yep. Bought them the same day they arrived at the gun shop almost 30 years ago. All tucked away NIB. With my luck, all worth less than what I paid for them :D
Hello Billy, The one HP I really want - is the one with tangent sights (rifle type) & a cut on the back strap for a stock. If you look on GunBroker.com - I think you will be pleasantly surprised at what NIB Browning (FN) HPs are bringing. I only have a FEG HP, & a TISAS stainless HP - both HP clones.

Btw, I came across an outstanding rare minty & unusual FEG HP CLONE on www.Gunbroker.com for a good price - item # 839749179 . I like FEG HPs
myself, & find them affordable - & just as accurate & reliable. This one is pretty as a Browning.

By the serial number it's a 1991 mk3 gun. Still a Browning tho. Shoots nice and looks so much better than my Sigs or the Glocks or really any of the Plastic Phantics.
Oops. that gun is now registered by Google.

PSA- blur out serial numbers on gun pictures, Google is actively searching these out and recording them.

Yes, and it's not just Google. Blur them, tape over them, something ...

I like the DA/SA semi autos

I grew up with revolver and its a comfortable to no transition move.

I have nothing against strikers but they should have a safety.
