Here is my Para 1911 GI Expert. I'll eventually pick up a Colt. Also since other children of Browning are allowed my 2 Hi-Powers. My favorite handgun.

I've seena Hi-Standards before but don't know anyone who owns one who can comment on their "shittiness". Para is okay in my book however. And the Hi-Powers...... fuck, man you have some nice pistols. I'm dying to get my hands on an older one.

Trust me, they suck. No one even makes beavertails that will fit it because of the way those fucking idiots designed the gun. Also, it's made in the Philippines and the finish scratches at the slightest touch

Para's track record has been bit iffy. Mine has been good. I wanted a Springfield Mil-Spec. But none were around at the time. Hi-Power prices especially the old ones have gone up.

I know, it's insane. Anyone who will charge, or pay, over 5 or 600 bucks for a 9mm is a nut. I don't care how old it is. Sadly I don't control the market so I have to wait for a deal and th emoney to come around.

And S&W, if you hate the Hi-Standard why don't you sell or trade it?

My uncle is buying it in January for $50 less than what I payed for it. I'm going to use the money to start saving for a CZ75
