MrFreefonix: ive met many soldiers who have shot these and ive never heard of these
jamming as our british troops used these for a while i had to teach one RAF
soldier how to grip a handgun corectly as he was taught to hold it like a
cup and saucer and couldn't hit anything with it because of his grip
TacticalTuckFard: i didn't know the magazine disconnect would cause the mags to not drop
free. you taught me something today good sir.
jmmurdy: nice....those are just fun guns not sure if i would carry but there fun to
have and shoot
phishst1cks: ive all most came close to buying a BHP several times, i like them.. nice
looking one you have there
coltcomphbar: How much would you say that model hi power is worth?
ammohead73: Great looking gun and good shootin bro!
Tactical Priority: that is such a beautiful gun.
TheRustysRagsMan: Nice gun!
sandman481000: 500 yards wtf
dafrogtoad: Beautiful pistol..thanks for sharing.
VeracityNation: Browning was a great designer! Thanks for sharing!
kg9pz: Another nice pistol, another nice vid, and another nice HAT! I just look at
this pistol on Friday, $800 average price for a nice one! I had one back in
03', paid $550 for it, brand new, wish I had kept it now. Like I always
say, "it's on the list"!
molybednum90: It is not a magazine safety it is not a safety at all, it is a "Magazine
Disconnect" and was a feature requested by the French and not part of the
original design. You can improve your accuracy by keeping your head up
straight and bringing the gun up in front of your face. The view from the
muzzle end you are doing what is called the "turtle."
BHPfan26: @23mrcowboys thanks man.
jsrscbr: Nice Hi-Power! I really like those sights.
BHPfan26: @TacticalTuckFard They make some that have a mouse trap looking thing on
the back of the magazine that will allow them to drop free. But they are
factory mags and pricey. That's whats nice about the extended 20 rounders
you can slap them out with your index finger.
thehandyotto: i own a browning and swear by them . great gun ! keep the in the ten ring !
BHPfan26: @bmw1997ish Believe it or not my SIG P226. Out of my nines, I shoot it the
angryjackalx: You need to take a 500 meter shot with it.
jermz999: Very Nice, Gotta Love the Hi Power.
woodswalker67: Can't take them all every time.Decisions, decisions, decisions
BHPfan26: That would be a tough one! The farthest I could do at my current shooting
area is about 100. Even that range would be tough for me.
MyHollowpoint: Very nice. Love that sight, don't see those anymore.
woodswalker67: Nice my friend
BHPfan26: @MyHollowpoint Yeah I saw on article on the Hi-Power history in GUNS
magazine circa '93 or '94. They used a vintage FN HP with those sights, so
I had to get one like that.
BHPfan26: @woodswalker67 Thanks man, I don't take it out near enough.
BHPfan26: @jmmurdy They are thin enough to carry comfortably. But the main problem is
the grip. You have to watch it with printing.
BHPfan26: @stlrayedwards Thanks Ray. Those Springfield hats are the only ones I have
, might as well represent.
BHPfan26: @woodswalker67 A lot of the time, I end up buying a new gun. So they get
taken and a video is made. While the oldies end up sitting in the safe.
BHPfan26: @coltcomphbar I think I paid around $600 for it (plus shipping & FFL fees)
Not sure if that helps you.
kg9pz: @BHPfan26 I have them saved in my favs, just haven't checked them on guns,
yet. I'll take a look, though, thanks!
molybednum90: Your reply makes a good point. As for the head position tucking your head
down is not the correct position and I say that from becoming a
professional firearms instructor in 1979, S.W.A.T.
Sniper/Instructor/Weapons of Mass Destruction Instructor, and a few more.
As for doing a video firearms and fishing have one thing in common, a lot
of myths. Over the years I've told people the truth and get "I do it this
way and it works for me" so why bother? Your reply is lucid for that my
Ray Edwards: It is a beaut! Love the bluing and just looks cool. Love the hat as well!
BHPfan26: @johniac7078 Thanks, everybody digs blued guns. Shame most makers don't do
BHPfan26: @phishst1cks If you can get past the trigger. They are great. Though some
do come from the factory with the a good trigger, but I haven't came across
1joshjosh1: freaking sexy pistol dude!! Keep her nice.
BHPfan26: @thehandyotto Yeah they are great. Thanks for watching.
jermz999: @BHPfan26 Its been great, At first I wanted to change the sights, but I
changed my mind after a few range trips. Hopefully my next Hi Power will be
BHPfan26: Yeah I know disconnect is the proper term. While wikipedia isn't the best
place for info, go to Safety (firearms) guess what's listed there? It may
have been a French requirement. But they ended up not even adopting it. I
used to wonder if I shouldn't tuck my head slightly when shooting, but seen
several shooters far better than me do it (cory07ink is one of them). So it
works them too. Also why don't post some shooting videos of your own before
you critique everyone else?
BHPfan26: @MakingMasterClass Thanks. I have another also, a Mark III. Had a third but
I traded it for the Colt 38 Super. The trigger is their only short coming,
but that can be remedied.
MakingMasterClass: Great looking gun man. I really want to get one eventually. Thanks for the
BHPfan26: @jsrscbr Thanks man.
bmw1997ish: Out of all these beautiful guns you have which is your "go to gun"?
BHPfan26: @kg9pz That was a good price, you should have kept it. Have you checked out
CDNN? They had some, I think it was the Mark III for $700, the blued
versions I'm not sure on the price.
BHPfan26: @jermz999 Thanks man, how's your HP been running?
Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
