As I am sure you know, the BHP was the outgrowth of a French request to FN for a 9mm pistol. They turned down the earlier GR and ignored the GP in favor of the 1935A. FN even cranked out a prototype in the caliber for a last shot at the French market, but they apparently had their minds made up.
I like it, the grip has that comfortable, almost sensuous feel that the Sig Sauer P225 is known for.
But the French National caliber is a negative. And the odd safety gives a manual of arms strange to those of us trained on Browning and other pistols with conveniently located thumb safeties.
