Not meaning to be an ass about this, seriously, but I'm glad it's your gun and not mine!  The Boss says that I have a Father Flanagan complex about firearms, i.e., it's not a bad gun, it's just misunderstood, and this one sounds like it would try my Christian forbearance!  Which is really too bad, because I've always kinda wanted a Hi-Power, just because.  If I ever had to carry a 9mm,  that's the one I'd want.

Best of luck with it, and if you decide to get rid of it, post it here first.  (I think I can figure out a way to make it work, eventually.  I may be wrong, but I'm not uncertain!)

He's said that he won't dump his problems on friends here.

What do you typically carry, out of curiosity?

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    I usually carry a Kimber Pro Carry, .45 ACP.  Sometimes a full-size steel frame 1911.  Occasionally a Ruger Security Six, and when I'm hunting it's normally a Ruger Vaquero in .45 Colt.

    I carry my Sig P228, Glock 19, and S&W 686+ 2.5 inch barrel. I might be selling the 686 soon, though.

    Thank you, but my forearms were not under discussion, were they?  I certainly hope not, they aren't that impressive. :D

    After final review, the pistol is still 12" high, and is now a candidate for disposal.
