As I am sure you know, the BHP was the outgrowth of a French request to FN for a 9mm pistol.
No, I didn't know that. Thanks for the info. Maybe the French just needed the work for their state owned gun maker. I like the 1935A, and actually shoot the thing a bit. It is a soft shooter, and inherently accurate. Still prefer my BHP though.
If you want to see the 1935A in action in a movie, check out "The Dog's of War" with Chris Walken. There is a scene where one of his group of mercs is going through a border checkpoint, and he takes a 1935A out in case he needs to use it.
Scroll down about half way.
