I've been carrying my recently acquired Hi-Power Mk III. It's actually my second Hi-Power, as I had an FM Detective years ago that I carried a few times. The Detective suffered from the lack of a positive thumb safety which killed it as a carry weapon, but the Mk III came out of the box with a nice crisp safety that's a good as ones I've experienced on 1911s.

I intend to shoot it in IDPA this spring, so the magazine disconnect will stay in the gun. I can live with the trigger and non-drop free magazines (I use Mec-Gar 15 and 20 rounders in place of the factory mouse trap magazines). With a little practice, I found it's fairly easy to rip the magazine out with the support hand while bringing it down to retrieve a fresh magazine. Only time will tell how well my technique works under stress, though.

Congrats Two Guns, welcome back to the light!

And for everyone, I hear IDPA recently OK'd removing the mag disconnect.

I used to carry a Hi Power in a VM-II. Excellent carry gun.

The Hi Power is my favorite pistol, second to a Glock 19.

I pretty much am down to carrying a Glock 19 exclusively. I loved the Hi Power, but I shoot the Glock better and the Glock just carries more comfortably for me due to the lighter weight.

I was at a gun show yesterday, specifically looking for Hi-Powers. I saw one. I saw approximately 1000 Glocks.
