Geez dahermit, how could I have forgotten the BHP. You are absolutely correct in your choice...and I'm a 1911 guy. Senility must be sneaking up on me. The BHP was J. Browning's final design and arguably, his best, but might be hard to find in great condition for $600. Good choice, and Best Regards, Rod
Cherish our flag, honor it, defend what it stands for or get the hell out. Our Freedoms are not free, they've been paid for many times over by heros in uniform. Far better men than I, died that we could be FREE.
