    BHP has a great feel to it and it is a true classic. Owned a few, but something else was calling me more.............some regrets because those replacements are gone too.

    Don Williams is one of a handful that does the BHP justice.

    Me too. I had a BHP back in the mid 80's with adjustable sights. I was finally able to carry it on duty so I sent it to Bill at Cylinder and Slide shop for thumb safety, hammer and action job by removing the mag safety. It shot like a house on fire and fed Federal 9BP ammo easily.
    Then the changes of carrying a condition 1 pistol were scorned by admins. Sold it to a LEO that could still carry them at another agency.
    Like always, I carry bruises on my backside from kicking myself after the fact. The S&W Gen 3 5906 was not nearly as nice as the BHP, Crunch click.

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it's still on my list.

    Not the OP but I think they’re VZ Grips.

    Excellent P35.
    It will, no doubt, be a shooter.

    Don is one of the top three or four BHP smiths in my book.
    His short reset mod is really nice- not unusual for a 1911 shooter to short stroke an OEM trigger.

    And I love the proper two tone, which is; blued slide/HC frame.
    There was actually a legit reason for this back in the day. The slide rarely, if ever, rusted from contact with a sweaty hand- and they were usually wiped off after a range session.
    The frame was prone to corrosion due to direct contact with the shooters hand however.
    A couple of mine are two tone guns.

    I can tell you through experience that his customer service is above reproach.

    Fantastic piece!!
    If you aren't armed when you take a dump in your own home then your opinion on what is a practical daily carry weapon isn't interesting to me.
