I have always liked the Hi-Power too. No other gun fits my hand as well. Nothing magic about it but it is relatively accurate, extremely reliable and for some reason, just easy for me to hit odd targets with.
Living out in the boonies does have some advantages. I can just go out to my back yard to shoot anytime I want. On the other hand, no high speed internet unless I was willing to pay the exorbitant satellite fees.
Priorities dog :)
