Hi-Power score

SCORE!

...I paid more than I wanted to, but never more than what I feel something is worth. My high bid was $951; I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this one!

A little nicer condition than the other one found in France....

Very nice find -- I think that the popularity of the HP is on the increase. One of my shooting buddies picked one up at the Tulsa show.

I thought for sure they would get it out for delivery since they got it before midnight; looks like tomorrow. :(

Well fuck me...check this shit out. V(

Apparently yesterday they claim to have tried to deliver it and nobody was there to receive it (that notice didn't show up in tracking until today). My FFL is a major retailer (Scheel's All Sports); there is always someone there! So of course, nobody at Scheel's knows a thing about it. I talked to the lady in charge of receiving and she has seen no notice or package. The post office won't tell me anything because the package is addressed to Scheel's so I cannot pick it up or even find out if they even have it anymore. Scheel's knows nothing about it because they are just the receiver. V(

Did you ever get it? Did I miss the post with all the gun porn and commentary on quality / feel of the fine purchase?

I did get it and its just beautiful. I've been meaning to put up pictures with a range report; I'll surely do that eventually. I consider this in my top ten gun finds.

That's interesting seeing as how in the past I've heard you say that you don't like guns with manual safeties.

I don't typically recommend (and in fact, discourage) carry guns with manual safeties because most people will not train adequately to make the safety sweep instinctual. I will carry 1911s and BHPs occasionally but I never stop training. For anyone willing to dedicate to their training I have no reservations recommending 1911s/BHPs for carry.

That said, this one wasn't intended as a carry purchase anyway. This one is incredibly beautiful and was purchased out of pure lust. 8)

Well I suppose I can understand the appeal of the Beverly Hills Cop gun (Though I believe that HP is a different variation):

Ohio9, I believe that is either an FEG P9R or a Norinco NP18.

All I can find is that it's a Browning HP manufactured by FN

If memory serves, the picture you have referenced is from the movie poster for the third film in the series.

The easiest way to tell that the pistol is not a Browning is the round piece behind the slide serations. This indicates a Walther-style safety-decocker on the left rear of the slide as found on both the P9R and the NP18. The squared trigger guard and right side of the slide stop both indicate that it is one of the DA/SA clones from FEG or Norinco as well. Personally I am leaning towards Norinco, since it has more "melted" lines like a lot of their guns, while FEG kept their lines fairly crisp.

You're right that image is from a poster for the third film. However, Murphy used the same Browning HP for all three movies. Perhaps he used a different gun for the promo posters
