IT'S OVER !  the planet will self destruct anytime now.

Well maybe not, but like the day the Duke died it sure was bummer.  When certain item or people reach the end EOL or end of life it is a sad day, the 1935 Browning Hi-Power 9MM will no longer in production.  to me this pistol is nothing short of a blue steel beauty a balance of capacity balance and optimal barrel length weight per recoil fit finish and simplicity in it's day a lethal piece of art, well it made 85 years many originals still exist in 85 more I will bet there will still be Hi-Powers in existence while all these soap on a rope plastisch will be in pieces on parts inc  IMHO.

Here is the article  1935 Brownng Hi-Power end of an era.

What’s even worse is when the Canadian government had a whole bunch of the Browning Hi Power handguns which could have been sold to legal firearms owners, yet the government of Canada destroyed all they had. This was in the news, a few years back. What a shame.

Too bad people think that destroying firearms will destroy the hatred in the human heart.  wrong thinking IMHO.

It's sad, but every time I head into my local Cabela's, the used gun rack has 5 or 6 Hi-Powers, and they're bringing stupid money. My brother has three of them, and so I get to shoot them regularly. They're wonderful, elegant guns - but in an age when you can get two or three Glock 19s or SIG P320s (which, on a base level, are arguable better fighting pistols) for the same price as a Hi-Power, I can see why Browning threw in the towel.

yea it's a bygone era but if ya got em' smoke em'  IMHO

people may not see it now but as the old cars made of steel today people drool over them the simplicity strength and they lasted, IMO I doubt very seriously that any of the plastisch pistolen will last until the next century  I have seen plenty of Springfield's brown besses and too many to name built in the late 1800 still slinging lead today while first generation glocks I have seen some interesting posts about.   I am not that hot about aluminum frames either.
