Hungarian FEG copy, with all Browning guts. Refinished in black Gunkote, with light custom work done (trigger, stippling, dehorn, etc)
More than likely going to end up as a coming home present for a buddy in Iraq, which somewhat saddens me. It is an absolutely fantastic pistol, and probably wouldn't be leaving my hands otherwise. He will be happy with it though, and that matters more in the long run.

Oh my, I need to update this picture. I've added a new practical and a Novak Special Ops Package built on a new FN HP since this as taken.
I had some serious BHPs at one point. Got rid of them because of two issues with regard to training continuity.

Hi-Powers are easily amongst the most beautiful pistols in existence. It's a shame that shooting them isn't as nice (to me at least).

Love them, love them, love them....
God those weapons look so old school. dont own one, and don't think I will ever. Just not my style, not scary looking enough for my pallet. But then again I am not knocking your choices guys just giving my .02cents worth. I will admit though that some of those look purrty and probably would be good pistol for the wifey.

Check out Rangegod's quote/tagline.....
"The old man said, “1911's & S&W's”, but the young man wanted to travel a different road. Finally, after many hard miles the now aged, worn and tired man came to understand; 1911's & S&W's were all he ever needed."

BHP is the high capacity heaven for the shooters with small hands and short fingers.
It is one the most elegantly shaped, joy to watch and handle pistols. It is the pistol along with the 1911 comes in the mind of the people when the word '' Pistol '' has spoken out.
Did I mention I love the BHP? :).

A pleasure to shoot, for women as well as men, and beautiful too.

Browning High Powers are appreciated by the same folks who appreciate Rolex watches. I don't own a Rolex, but I got me a High Power!
Don't have a pic, but I have the 9MM Silver Chrome model with ubiquitous gold "pimp" trigger. Its box stock including the Pachmyr grips and its easily my most accurate 9MM pistol. Looks great, shoots great.
