Live must go on after our gun law is under attack since last sunday when a lady killed her son, her man and another man in a nearby hospital. Wrote about this here, too.

There is a match next saturday at Hof, only for shooting clubs, army and officials, will start with a team of police. So I did some training today with my P7 and meet another officer from custom office at the range. He had a FN High Power for shooting, I asked if I could do some rounds. Very interesting when I remember during the war you had 6 (British), 7 (US) or 8 (most German) rounds, and then you carry a pistol with 13 rounds in magazine, total if you want 13+1. A powerfull handgun which gave you some more rounds than the enemy had. No wonder the pistol was very popular.

Greetings Uwe

Go on GunBrokers. They have a selection of the WWII pistols. 20 Years ago, 66 countries still considered the Hi Power as their main carry gun. This is the correction to the M1911 Colt Pistol.
1911 guys are constantly having to change the 1911. Browning knew this in the 1920's and fixed by 1935. The fix is called "Hi Power"
