And I've let a few go my very first handgun was a Browning H.P. that I had a friend buy for me and hold for a year till I was old enough I pay'd $250.00 for that one brand new. and abought 10 years late I bought a Browning Renaissance H.P. that i never shot I pay'd $1000.00 for that one. But I'm into WWI and WWII so now I'll have to find a German marked H.P.to go with my other WWII gun's.
One of my very favorite carry guns is my FN Herstall HP. It is tolerant of all ball and HP ammo I have tried, reliable and a real eye opener for friends who have never shot the original "hi-cap" 9, that are used to shooting the various wonder nine glocks, xd's, etcetera that are, today, all too common.
Mine rides very comfortably in a G&G shoulder rig, with two extra "mousetrap" mags. I have never felt the need to address the "no mag - no shoot" issue which is really a non-issue with me.
cxm, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Inglis Hi Powers. I finally acquired my uncle's (purchased new waaaay back when) Inglis. It was unfired as he just collected and did not shoot. I then located an as new matching year original shoulder stock. It appears that it never saw service. I love shooting them and see others' reactions to the "nine". Just plain fun. Good luck in your venture.
