Default Another Hi Power

I just filled out paperwork for another Browning Hi Power yesterday. I was shopping on Gunbroker and found
an Austrian Police Contract Hi Power from the 1950's. It has an inventory # on the front strap and came with 2
magazines with the same inventory # as the gun and the original box. I'm looking forward to taking it home
in 9 days and taking it to the range.

Sad that you have to wait so long.......

I've always wanted a Hi Power, but I've never pulled the trigger on one (forgive the semi-pun)! Congratulations!

9 days to wait until but goes home is the short wait. I had to wait a month to do the paperwork because of Kalifornia laws of 1 handgun a month if purchased from an auction site like Gunbroker
or a new gun from a dealer. I can buy as many private party transfer guns from other people or consignment guns as I want in that 30 day period, tho.
I love Browning Hi Powers; if you get the chance to get one, don't hesitate. Especially now that they don't make them anymore, they are going to get scarce
and more expensive. This one from Austria was one of the cheapest I've gotten recently; but, I won't be that lucky, again.

Also, here in the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia I can't buy a new handgun unless it is on the approved roster of new handguns which is extortion to the manufacturers to sell
handguns if this state of insanity:https://www.oag.ca.gov/firearms/certguns
The only way to get a gun like the older Hi Powers is to find one that is older than 50 years old and is a Curio and Relic which currently is older than 1969.
Next year the limiting year will be 1970.
