Re: Winchester Ranger 127gr. +P+ JHP

Hello. I have little doubt that the warmer loads, be they +P or +P+ will cause more wear per shot than ammunition loaded to lower pressure levels. That said, I've shot several thousand rounds of both +P and +P+ through my (cast frame ) Mk III Hi Powers with no problems. I use an 18.5-lb recoil sprin...

First Shots: FNX9 Pistol

Hello. I recently tried out two different FNX9 9mm pistols. FNX is the successor to Fabrique National's FNP-handgun series. This polymer-framed, double-action semiautomatic sports frame-mounted, ambidextrous thumb safety levers, which double as decockers, and the pistol does permit Condition One ("c...

Trying a New SIG-Sauer P220...

Hello. I recently purchased a NIB SIG-Sauer P220 .45 ACP pistol. This one sports an accessory rail (something I could live without), and has the milled slide rather than the folded version with a pinned-in breech block. It also has the external extractor. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y171/hipowe...

FEG Hi Power Information Site...

Hello. I am frequently asked about FEG-manufactured Hi Power "clones". My experience with these pistols is limited. I have seen a couple that were sold under the Mauser name, but they were actually manufactured by FEG, just as Browning Hi Powers are manufactured by FN. These pistols sported a polish...

Re: Shooting the CZ Kadet .22 LR...

Hello. I took my Pre-B CZ-75 w/Kadet upper back out to the range today, but also brought the pistol's original 9mm slide assembly and magazine. After shooting the compartatively inexpensive .22's for a while, I fired a 20-shot group (two magazines-full) at 15 yards. I then replaced the Kadet and .22...

Shooting My Star Model B Custom...

Hello. The first handgun I purchased as an adult was an Star Model B in the early '70's. If memory serves, the tariff was about $75.00 or so. I foolishly let that one get away but toward the end of the following decade I was able to buy another Model B from the last production run announced by the m...

Re: Shooting the CZ Kadet .22 LR...

Hello. Since the original post was written a while back, I've continued to use the Kadet conversion on a fairly regular basis with today being the latest session. The pistol is in about the same form as when I did the original post. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y171/hipowersandhandguns/Hipowersa...

Hi Power Range Session...

Hello. Like the majority here, I try to get to the range on a frequent basis. Some shooters are dedicated to a set regimen using a specific handgun or perhaps two while other folks shoot a wider variety of handguns. In years past, I primarily shot a 9mm Hi Power but when I became a police officer wo...

Shooting the 40-Caliber Hi Power...

Hello. I recently was able to shoot a borrowed 40-caliber Hi Power Standard Model that came with adjustable sights. The pistol was stock. Its owner had made no changes to it in any form or fashion. http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y171/hipowersandhandguns/Hipowersandhandguns2/BHP40StdSport001.jpg Th...

Re: New gun shop draws fire

Hello. As far as I am concerned, this is just another example of the HOA "Half-Penny Hitler" mentality and why I consider HOA's beneath contempt. Before their apologists say, "Well, don't buy a house in one if you feel that way," let me say that I never will again, but I didn't even know that there ...

Re: Met Up with an Old Friend...

Hello. No, sir. In that instance, the pistol was a Colt Commander .45 ACP. (I am not sure which of us was the most surprised!)

Re: Met Up with an Old Friend...

Hello. It weighs 32 oz. empty or very close depending on grips. How much it weighs fully-loaded would depend upon the particular load. Fourteen 124-gr. factory Remington 9mm cartridges weigh right at 6 oz. so that would bring the loaded (13 +1) weight to about 38 oz. An empty 1911-pattern pistol wei...
