USP .45 Tactical. I had that exact same situation once. 1,000 burnin a hole in my pocket, wanted a new pistol. I went with the USP Tactical and I don't regret it one bit. Now I just have to go through the ATF paperwork hell to get a supressor, because I've got the money set aside :twisted:
well the problem is i have very small hands. USP is just to damn big, and i live in CA, so anything Hi-cap isn't allowed, haha. The only thing i didn't like was the BHP got VERY hot and started doing things that hot things do.
Thos FM Hi Powers made in argentina are really good. They are made to spec but have a colt 1911 slide profile instread and they are about half the price of a Browning or FN hi power. They also have that polycoat type finish you see on CZ guns.
FM is the Argentine version of FN in Belgium. Basically means the same thing in Spanish instead of French. They were a FN contractor for years but now make an interesting copy that is both accurate, reliable, and fully compatable to the more expensive FN Herstal Hi Powers. Only diff is the finish and slide profile is more like a 1911 oddly enough. They also make a nice 22lr conversion kit for the Hi power.
It will be the first Hi Power I will buy...but right away I will strip teh polycoat and blue it. I just love blued guns.
