I shoot a Smith and Walther 999 I got as a police trade in and a Kahr CM in 40. They are a joy to load for with power pistol.. The Kahr does it's best with the Lee 145 and .400", the S&W .401 and the Lee 175 standard groove. The Kahr fits in my palm and is as easy to shoot as a 9.

Yes, agreed - BUT--
Except that the internal small parts count and disassembly past pulling the slide and barrel for the
CZ-75 is way, way worse than the BHP. BHP is ultra simple, the CZ-75 is ultra complex. I did a trigger job
for a friend on a CZ 75, what a PITA design internally! I like the gun, I like the ergonomics, I shoot it well, and
have a .22 cal version, too. But I am no fan of the internals. Seems like using 5 parts when two would
do. The BHP is even simpler than the 1911 internally. JMB had to avoid violating his own patents which
were owned by Colt at that time, so had to do it entirely differently, and boy did he.

a shame the BHP is nearly gone. I have a Hungarian FEG that I will be milling the slide for a set
of Novak sights here soon. Should really fix it up. Then a rust blue refinish and new grips and it
will be pretty much reborn. FEG quality is pretty decent from what I can tell.

I did a complete tear down on my CZ 75B once. Won’t ever do that again. It does have a heap of little parts and tiny springs.
From now on that action gets sprays with cleaner, dried, and recoiled every so often.
That said it fits my hand better than any other handgun and I wouldn’t be without it.

Brad, have you shot a BHP? IMO, they are equal and outstanding grip designs.
I understand that there is the Omega version of the CZ which I handled at LGS, and trigger is similar in single action, reportedly much simpler inside, but never had one apart to see. Simpler would be in the right direction.
Cannot overstate how simple the BHP is internally.

If I could fine a BHP at the right price I would buy one. Well, if my “accountant” approved....

Never fired one but have never heard anything but positive.

Works for me. I have three. :)

Israeli surplus MKIII is rough but has good safety, ambi, and nice dovetailed sights.
The FEG will have Novak sights soonish, originals are poor, as was typical of the era
and the Browning commercial had a better safety and great sights added by Bill Laughridge,
and Metalloy, plus nicer grips added by me. Technically, that one is my wife's gun but
she is generous about letting me borrow it.

So far I have never had ANY BHP jam, ever. Including my first pistol reloading and
casting adventures, which is pretty amazing, I must have made some mistakes, I was
a beginner, yet it digested 100% of them.
