I guess because I shoot about 15K rounds each year for USPSA and I never have grabbed the Hi Power for a trip to the range. I will shoot it one day when I get a chance. I just figure if I am making time for the range then I should be honing my skills for competition. Once I am done practicing I am tired and ready to go home so I don't make time for shooting other guns.

I think the BHP is one of the best feeling most beautiful and classic pistol designs ever produced. I have given thought to shooting this one but just never brought myself to doing so.
I bought my first HP yesterday. It was made in Dec. of '02. It's used and when I got it home and really examined it I believe that it's never been fired. There are absolutely no marks of any kind, even on the barrel. It's standard and the blueing is flawless. One of the most beautiful guns I've ever owned or seen. I say this because now I don't want to fire it. It's so perfect that I think I'll simply put it in the safe and then search for an older, really used, HP. Is that crazy? I don't thinkg so.

Some fancy guns there. The brothers I have are just a couple of working stiffs.

Two Browning's and an FN. The FN gets carried almost everytime I'm out of the house.

Great pics folks. HPs are certainly tops in the "looks" department for sure.

I think they're one of the most beautiful pistols ever made.

I like the looks of that thumb safety. It looks like it's big enough to catch it without any trouble. Does the detent lock it in or out of safe securely? I had something similar, but the action was sort of mushy so I took it off.
