Old photo, but here's mine. Just your basic hi-power in a factory blue'd steel. Aftermarket wood grips.

Only thing done to it is a trigger job. Gun is rock solid and accurate for basically an out of the box gun. Very comfortable gun too.



Original mag is a 14 rd and I also have 2 10 rd mags. No feeding or jamming issues.

I've read it's really solid. I'd like to fire one myself before making the commitment.

They are really solid. Its another John Browning design. Its suppose to be an improved 1911. Browning took what he learned from that and put it into the hi-power.

And its an old school all steel gun, so it doesnt feel like a toy like all the new stuff.

One of my "list" guns is an Five-Seven and I could not BELIEVE how CHEAP the fucking thing feels! It feels like a $1200 toy gun...it's stupid.

I get the same feeling from my brother's USP Compact.

The grip is comfortable but I can't get over how cheap the plastic frame makes it feel. Its hard to believe it was a $900-1000 dollar gun #becauseHK

Appears there's a smaller number of .40 S&W models out there. Anyone have opinions on the difference between the .40 and 9mm?

I can't really search on firearms at work. They block a ton of that shit.

You'll be happy with either. .40 will bring a better resale value. But im pretty sure it reduces mag capacity.

Seriously though, 9 is a better round, hands down. Research it.

Here's just a couple:

If its good enough for Marines Special Ops (in many cases), it's sure as fuck good enough for me.
