    Looking at input on which is the better shooter.... Currently a 1911 shooter with acouple Glocks... Looking to get into a 9mm pistol and need suggestions on which to get first ;-)

    And you'll get opposing opinions like mine that find the Browning a better shooter.

    May depend partially on what your definition of "better" is.

    I appreciate smooth shooting firearms... I prefer my Springfield Pro to my TRP but i still enjoy my TRP... If that helps with defining "better".

    Ive been drooling over a Novaks BHP for a while and eventually whatever BHP i buy will get sent to Wayne & Co.
     
  6. A Belgium Browning HP is a fine but somewhat outdated pistol. The Beretta shoots well but is quite large. For a general use, concealed carry self-defense, I believe a G19 is a better option.

    Take a stock Beretta and a stock Browning to the range and see which ones are more mechanically accurate, has better trigger pulls, etc. Then examine to see which one has better fit & finish. Get the matte finish Browning to compare instead of the polished blued version.

    The Beretta wins hands down, and that's why I have four of them as opposed to one Hi-Power.

    I started out with a 1911 so I don't find the HP "outdated at all. I fail to see how it even could be considered so. I find it fits my hand better. As far as accuracy, I feel they are so close that I couldn't make a blanket statement about either being "more accurate"

    Without wanting to open the whole DA/SA thing, I fail to understand why "learning" the transition from DA first shot to SA is "acceptable" But "learning" to use a thumb safety is "unacceptable".

    Try both if you can and see which one feels better and "learn" it's system

  9. I'd take the HP anytime over the 92, especially if you plan on carrying it. The 92 is too big and blocky, IMO.

    Yes, no one carries a beretta 92...

    Much too big...

    I seriously doubt there's a useful answer to the original question, beyond "Pick the one that works the best for you."

    First thing is the gun will be more accurate than you. Or to put it a different way go to youtube and watch hickcock shoot targets at 100 yards with multiple pistols.

    Second, try a glock, it is considerable different from your 1911. You may love, or not....

    Because there is no mirror polished blued Berettas available from the factory. The matte finish on the Browning is more utilitarian like the Beretta finish.

    One question to decide.

    Single or Double? (Action)

    I much prefer single myself and I would have no doubt that I would choose the Hi power.

    Don't forget the Cz-75 though!

    Sadly enough, I retired it last month and got a Android phone. I wanted internet access, and I got sick of typing back to tons of text messages my wife kept sending...
