I have a .40 S&W Practical also. It is a great pistol, for a .40S&W.
Sits so great in your hands, accurate, reliable. . .
oversized hammer eats a whole in my fist everytime I fire it.
I gotta get that thing replaced one of these days!
Aside from the oversized hammer, I have no complaints on my BHP. I have been looking to get a .357 Sig barrel for it forever also. I do believe a trip to Kurt Wickman is in order for the barrel, hammer and perhaps a set of bar/dot night sights.
