Why do I need a BHP?
 
A friend asked me to sell this for him.

Well, I can't get it out of my hand, so I may as well own it.

IMO, the BHP feels better in the hand then almost any other pistol. It is a classic and would be a great addition to your collection. What is he trying to get out of it?

The BHP is a personal favorite of mine. It's one of the most well designed 9mm pistols ever to grace my hands. It's one I had to sell when times were tougher, and I'll always have a soft spot for the one that I sold.

I agree.

I bought him a NIB Glock 17 and he was happy.

Although I am not a fan of the 9mm, if the zombies come, this is my go-to pistol.

You ask: "Why does one need a BHP?"

Because it's the pistol that Jesus would have owned, should he have been interested in firearms.......

niiiiiice BHP keep it, it's a classic and nice shooting gun too

You only need a BHP if you all ready have a S&W 952, a SIG P210, a Glock 17, a CZ75, a SIG 226, a HK USP, a S&W1911 pro 9, a UZI, then maybe just to try something different you could get a BHP. I had one in in 40 S&W and did not keep it for long. It was a two tone job with rubber grips. I think I'd like to get a old classic blue with wood grips in 9mm.

I have lots of handguns and the Hi-Power is one of my very favorites.

Why? Mine have been super reliable, accurate, feel good in the hand, no stupid grip safety to worry about, good ammo capacity, and they have a lot of personality to them that most modern guns totally lack. Oh yeah, they also look great.

I have got one from my dad and it was his from a long time. I would not sell it for two reasons it was my dads favorite gun and it is a very reliable gun as well. The classics never go out of style.

The stupid grip safety was made to keep "stupid" from having a 1911!!!

Well I know you are not talking 'bout me 'cause I've got a few 1911's as well, that's how I know their shortcomings.

You can go to youtube and watch Mr. Hickok45 -TRY- and shoot a table full of 45's without getting malfunctions. Sad to say it doesn't happen.

You need one because it's a John Browning masterpiece.

That's one of the funniest things I've ever read on a forum. I read it out loud and my wife laughed too. Bravo to you sir.

Actually, the only one ofBrowning's innovations that made it to the final P35 design was the clocked breech. Pretty much the rest of the final pistol, including the staggered high capacity magazine was all Dieudonné Saive.

Browning died in 1926 and the HiPower was completed in 1935.

And I'm not knocking the BHP, I had two of them.

I asked him to put on Yost Retro sights, or the best equivalent and a matching front sight.

I will post pics when it gets back.

Looking forward to the pics :cool:

I like the HP,but I carry a Sig 226 9mm and if not that my second chioce of 9mm is a Glock. Much more robust and reliable than the old Browning design. Once the top of the 9mm food chain,but now at or near the bottom of todays 9mm,s the Highpower is a good safe queen.

rv4driver 02-28-2012 19:34

BHP, safe queen? OMG, now you've done it!
