    Been wanting to try one for a while, and today I finally pulled the trigger.

    Here are some pics, hope to have a range report early next week.

    Nice Hi Power! Wonderful pistols, I love mine. Nothing else fits my hand as well as the HP.

    They're wonderful guns. I don't see a reason to have more than one, but my collection attempts to have variety.

    Congrats on the new Hi Power. I loved mine and then found a deal that I couldn't pass up on a second. Great pistols.

    After your range trip, I bet you are going to ask yourself why you waited so long. Terrific pistol, you are sure to enjoy it.

    I also admired them for a long time and recently got my first, very much like yours. Excellent "all-around" gun. Feels great in my hand and "carries lighter" than you would thing for it's full-size, steel frame.

    I just picked up my first HP the other day. It's being held hostage by the state of Florida right now. I can't wait to take it shooting next week. I hope you enjoy yours!

    My HP's are very reliable. Stick with Mec-Gar mags and you will be a happy HP owner too.

    Everyone should have one, they are a great handling and shooting gun! Here's a pic of mine next to my Walther P88.
