I Can't Believe That I Never Wrote About This

The Hi-Power that I bought several years ago:

I like shooting it, a lot. I've shot a few matches with it. The only issue for match shooting is that the magazine disconnect holds in the magazines (I don't have "mouse-trap" ones), so I have to strip them out with my off hand. I won't pull that out, as I want to retain the option of carrying the gun. Disabling a safety device on a carry gun is a bad idea.

The sharp edges of the hammer were fixable. 10-round magazines are readily available for those living in retarded restricted magazine capacity states. (The lanyard ring fell off and was lost some years ago.)

I really do like it. In case I'm not being clear about that.

Is that a Unicomp keyboard in the background?

That's another great piece of equipment.

It is. I got it to replace a Model M so I’d have the Winders keys. For some reason, it hasn’t worked right since my last move. (The Model M still works.)

I'm pretty sure the original Model Ms are indestructible. I've got one with PS/2 and one with an AT connector, and those still work fine, but are 101-key. I've had Unicomps at work, never quite gotten around to buying one to have at home.

I found a broken Model M in a thrift store for $2. I bought it and salvaged all of the key caps.

Comrade Misfit said...

Yeah, the Unicomp one is broken. Quite a few keys don’t work.

The Model M soldiers on…..
