I just got a well used nickel plated Kareen HP from Cole's, it's a real pleasure to own a hi power once again. If should buy you all a beer and a cigar :)

Darned if I don't know how to post pictures anymore...but it's ugly anyway!

Congrats! HP's definitely grow on you. Just seen one of the latest FN HPs from Aim. Yup, ugly, that's the word I used too! :D

Shoots pretty good though.

The first time I handled one a light bulb came on, and I was hooked. My first was a NIB FEG that I just loved, but I had to part with it and many others. This is my first firearm in sometime, and it feels like meeting up with an old friend :)

they are not addictive, they simply produce offspring while in the safes!:D
Got a couple of these, blue and brush metal finish, great shooters!

HI had intended to leave it in well used and ugly condition, but the thought of cleaning it up is beginning to grow on me :)

How did you manage to get a nickel plated one?

I just took a look at cole's one day and there it was, the price was good and had all that character. I'm sure the history is interesting, maybe it was a PD gun?

Carried a HP as side arm in NZ army, matched with my scoped FN-SLR what a great pair :fal:
