    Hi All -

    Just picked up a MK111 made in 1989 and unfired. Has a forged frame, original box with all paperwork and is the std. matte finish model. My question is would you put this gun into service or keep in orginal condition in the safe?
    Appreciate the opinions of the members - although I'm very familiar with many handguns my BHP knowledge is limited - I do have several choices for range & carry duty so this gun is not a necessity for use.

    Thanks for your responses in advance.

    I'd probably fire it, unles you already have another HP.

    What good is a gun you can't shoot. I have four older BHP, two of them are 'T' series guns. I have shot them all.:supergrin:

    You have to shoot it. It is a MKIII so it really doesn't have any collector value at this time.
