    Who has then?
    Who carry's them?
    What do you like them?

    Lets see some pictures if you have them.

    I recently acquired a very nice FN Hi-Power from a fellow member and it almost instantly became my favorite handgun.

    It just seems to fit my hand perfectly. and even better I seem to be able to shoot some nice groupings at 10 and 25 yards with it.

    I sent my down to Don William's at the action works for there "street package and a set of Novak sights. It is my intention to carry this an a frequent basis.

    This is the only Picture I have of mine for now. I will post some more after I get it back.

    My prewar FN P35. I still shoot it occasionally although it is more of a historical piece.

    Here's mine, Belgian, simple Pachmayr grips, parkerized, battle sights and been in my backpack or truck 20+ years...

    You can't beat it for simplicity and durability, plus I can manage the recoil better than the .45. Winchester Silvertips in the mag.

    FN High Power, 9mm that I no longer carry, have gone to a lighter 9mm. Superb pistol. Will never part with it, love the gun, one of the greatest pistols ever made. Spad

    I have a FN HP as well. It's one of the later with the epoxy coat finish. Very nice gun, but the trigger if horrible. It sure does point and carry nice in a Milt Sparks VM2. Some day it will go off for trigger work.

    I have mine I bought 15 years ago, only in .40, not 9mm, and has been my favorite gun since. I added the Hogue grips and haven't found a better fit yet.
