Our old buddy Hickok45 is back and look what he brought out to the range, his trusty old Browning Hi-Power 9mm pistol. I realize there are alot of great 9mm handguns out there on the market, but this pistol stands apart from the crowd. Maybe it’s because I’m older, but at one time, the Hi-Power was one of the best 9mm pistols in the world. In my opinion…I think it still is.
When it was introduced early in the 20th century, the Browning Hi Power 9mm pistol was a revelation. It offered the perfect balance of handling, size and firepower, with an impressive 13-round magazine capacity. Over the years, the Hi Power has aged gracefully and continues to have a loyal following among those “in the know.” Whether you are a novice or a seasoned shooter, you will appreciate the fine craftsmanship and function of these classic pistols, the sure heft of the machined steel frame and slide, and their natural pointability.
Even with the double-column magazine, the grip is narrow to neatly accommodate nearly every hand size, and the single-action trigger provides a smooth, consistent pull. As reliable, accurate and easy to shoot as ever. Sure, there are many, many other full-size 9mm pistols on the market that are made to meet many different requirements. But in the end, every true firearm enthusiast should have a Hi Power in their collection. Having and shooting the best just means something. Like I said in the title ….you just can’t beat a classic!
The Folks at Browning had this to say:
The Browning Hi Power is one of the most revered pistols of all time. This ground-breaking firearm was originally designed by John M. Browning and perfected in the years following his death by Fabrique Nationale’s prolific designer, Dieudonne Saive. The Hi Power has proven itself around the world in the hands of law enforcement, military, special operations forces and law abiding citizens.
