Gotcya covered buddy.. [url]http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/family.asp?webflag_=007B&catalog_=B[/url]

I would say that the Irish Army had the Browning (BAP) and it served well for 40 yrs.. but its shoots high to the right I found, so firing for effect with one hand maybe neccessary if you are not WELL practiced... not ideal in close quarters... The Irish Army has replaced it with the USP, so far its well liked, not that we have allot of use outside of training...

Our style is more descreet forsure... but Hezbollah mistook us for a bunch of *****s in the 80s, and we resolved that misunderstanding in short order...

Use of Armed Force should be a finely tuned instrustrument of pressure, not a blunt force trauma hammer... thats a dictum big countries have the choice of adopting, and little ones like Ireland have to adopt...

Our forces used the FN HP-DA too.
Its somewhat replaced by the Walther p99 in the special groups sidearm.

Whats the FN Semi Auto like Torps?.... I used the FN SLR in the early days and found it to be a good weapon with plenty of punch but awkward in urben settings.. Steyr is much better but doesnt have the same punch... anyway back to the pistol, whats the FN like?
