picked up my second Hi power today

I was killing time in my LGS and saw a 1994 hi power practical in excellent condition looking lonely in the case. It looked so lonesome without any other hi powers around not talk with so I bought it so it could keep my 1984 hi power company. It will become my EDC gun very soon.

Would post pics, but we know what they look like. Besides, I can't seem to ever get the lighting right for gun photos.

This is a practical frame with a spare slide converted from nickel to HC.

Sometimes it is easier to get the composition right when the gun is not two tone.

I still recall all the details of my second hi power which happened to be first mk ll. A second hi power was a real turning point for me. I began my quest to use every available fixed rear sight on the market. Time to slow down.

I was SUPPOSED to pick up my second BHP today but they didn't have it in the system in time so I'll have to get it next week. Congrats and your BHP getting a safe-mate, and enjoy!

Congrats and thank God you rescued her from the loneliness. Just be careful - they tend to multiply when left alone in the safe. As far as pictures go, I have found that the best ones I've taken were outside during the day. The natural light sans flash seems to produce the clearest, sharpest, and most non-reflective pictures.
Best Regards,

Mr burgs:

I must confess there will be some deceptive math in my answer. My favorite sight as of today is the one I only have one of because it is not for sale on the market. If you do not believe this math then go with the other math. The sight I have purchased and installed the most of is the quincy Illinois classic. I must add there are two sights I know of I have yet to try but I am workin on that too.
