    That's awesome, Willie :cool:

    I have long loved the Browning Hi Power and the T Series is one of my favorites.

    Yes, they tend to multiply. This appears to be your first all Belgian model. :thumbsup:

    Dorel, someone with your taste in handguns, should also look into an FN GP Competition. :cool:

    Thank you Brian , I am looking at the Browning Hi Power as a nostalgic object from my military days. The FN GP Competition is for me a collector item and is on my ever growing list:)

    That sounds like a good plan, Dorel.

    If you want a Hi Power that shoots really well, the GP is the best option. However, it's not pretty like a T Series. Best to get both.

    That's awesome- congrats! Vintage HPs (especially T-series guns) are beautiful.

    Thanks to you all for the comments. These rarely show up in my area and I was fortunate to find it. The gun is very clean inside and the action is notably smooth, even with the mag disconnect.

    Be careful Dorel, your wonderful firearms collection is going to quickly double when you adopt Brian's strategy for gun acquisitions.

    I really would not mind Willie,I appreciate Brian's knowledge, experience and his willingness to share.His valuable advise took my collection from a bunch of glocks, hk's, colt and smith's [which I also like] to a higher level of unique and excellent firearms.

    HPs are like stamps, there are so many beautiful variations you just get the collecting bug. All of mine have the magazine disconnect intact. The trigger isn't as good as a result but I just can't get round to modifying them away from the original design.

    I have one that was removed before I bought it, but it is a newer model. I also have a custom HP without the disconnect. All my vintage models are original. :cool:

    I remove the mag disconnect safety, it's easy enough to return to original condition if needed.

    I kick myself for selling off my .40 HP.

    Maybe I should pick up a 9.

    It really is a nice carrying and shooting gun. A good combo between size and power.
