Hey Steven,
It's great to see that you've set this up. I've drifted away from the HP for a while but just had one of those soul searching moments and am going back to one.
I recently ran into a guy at the local gunshow that had one of the guns I built a few years ago. It's been through the wringer since but I plan on getting her back and restoring her to her previous greatness. I will try and post updates and pics as this develops.

For those of you who don't know me from other forums, here's an intro.
I go by the nickname Doc not because I'm a doctor but because I was a US Navy FMF Corpsman assigned to the Marines. I'm now a full time civilian as of one year ago. I did my last dance with the Marines during the initial assault on Baghdad. If you see the picture in my profile, I'm sitting in one of the "Non-existant" terrorist training camps in Iraq. The AK is a friend that I adopted after a series of events left me with only a M-9 pistol.
I now reside in San Antonio and am a family guy on a family guy budget. None the less, I love to shoot and have a special affininty for the Browning HP. She is my lady love of handguns.
There you have it.

"...drifted AWAY from the Hi Power???!!! APOSTATE! Hahahahaha! Just kidding.

Thanks for the kind words, but Joshua did the work and set the site up. I don't have enough sense to do this sort of thing.

Hopefully we can have a site here that has topics of interest, shared information, and adult-level discussions w/o trolling, rudeness, or such.

If your HP that's "been through the wringer" is actually mechanically sound, a matte blue or black parkerizing usually covers any blemishes...if you want the gun to be dark in color.

Good luck and please keep us updated.
