I've been a .45 Auto guy for quite some time but want to try the .40. Narrowed down the selection to Glock or a BHP.

Which one would you get and why?

Thanks for your input.

I think either would be a fine choice. The glock will do better in the realm of weight/capacity/reliability (I keed I keed!), but also isnt the classic bhp. The BHP will have a better trigger, and be metal. Its all about your preferences.

Why are you dead set on .40? Personally, I would prefer the 9mm version of either in this order: G19> G26> G17 > BHP. I have owned one BHP (sold it) and currently own 1 G26. I will be adding a G19 to my arsenal soon.

Glock 22!!

Easy to work on, reliable as any, numerous aftermarket parts and upgrades available, simple to operate, accurate, and they look good doing it!!

as much as i like the BHP, i will have to say the Glock--its just easier to find parts for and cheaper too

I'd go with a glock. I'm not a fan of the mag disconnect on the BHP. But if you are a 1911 guy then the grip angle of the BHP will probably feel better to you.

Neither. I shot a Springfield XD in .40 and it was one of the flattest shooting, controllable handguns I have ever handled.

I realize it isn't an option you presented, but the XD gets my vote. If you already handled one and eliminated it as a choice, I would be interested to know why.

Several years ago I bought a .40 BHP Practical. I liked it so much I went out and bought another one right away. It's a definite shooter. The triggers were a little bit gritty at first, because of the magazine disconnect, but after several hundred rounds they smoothed out nicely.

I would go BHP in .40. I love the grip with houges on (I do not like houges on every pistol) and my HP was more accurate than my Glocks and just as reliable.

I truly do loves the BHP.
As for you, get what YOU want, not what anyone else tells you to.

I have both a Glock 23 and a FN 40 Hi power----my opinion is that they fill two distinctly different roles.......get both! Buy one, then save for the other.

The Glock is a great ccw piece, simplicity and reliability in the extreme, easy to master...but a bit "boring", in my opinion.

The Hi power is a different breed...certainly worthy for ccw, but takes a different protocol to master, and a blast to shoot during extended range time.

Yeah, that would be my thoughts as well.

Glock 35, no question.

I'd get the BHP. Glock fotees tend to:
