    I always knew I was going to be getting this pistol (as I'm my father's only child). But I didn't think dad would give it to me early. Needless to say, I'm thrilled to take possession of this fine JMB designed weapon!

    From my Google-Fu, I was able to determine that the pistol was born in 1984, when I was 5 years old. It is a Belgian. It was purchased by dad from a GSP trooper back then. My dad was fond of the Hi-Power due to some interaction with Australian officers armed with them during Vietnam (dad was a US Army Captain/veteran of Vietnam). Dad was/is a fan of the higher mag capacity and lower recoil of the Hi-Power as compared to the M1911.

    So, here she is in all her Double Stack Elitist glory!

    I love the feel of the High Powers.

    Congrats on the acquisition.

    Very nice. I recently received a mint 70 series Colt 1911 in the very same manner. I'm sure yours, like mine, will never be for sale. :righton:
