    Well I sold off one of my revolvers with the intention of buying a Kahr CW9 as a companion piece for my CW45. However, I succumbed to the sultry lines of a steel and wood grande dame. You know, there just something to that name "Hi Power"; I've long thought it a great moniker for a pistol:).
    Here' mine (an early MKIII):

    Thank you all for your comments:)
    I've put about two hundred rounds through it with nary a hiccup. Love the ergonomics, it's a comfortable gun to shoot and it points very well. I'm really happy with it.
    regards,
    Greg

    If everyone had a hi-power in their life, we'd all be happier and I think there would probably be more barbeques, even in winter. I don't want to go into lengthy details, but this is based on very sophisticated hard science.

    I think ya done good!

    As good as a Hi Power feels in my hand, if they made one in every caliber, they're all I would own. If not for my general disdain for 9mm I would have bought one 30 years ago for LE. I could not pass one up at a gun show without picking it up and fondling it.

    Excellent choice. There's something about a gun with character that really makes it stand out, you don't find that with many new ones.

    I've been shooting pistols for some 45 years and the BHP has always been one of my favorite ones. You have a real beauty there...I wish you the best of luck with it. :)
