I think I have too many of similar guns - more of competition/target gun

Browning Hi-Power GP Competition (a target pistol w/extended weighted 6" barrel and adjustable sheet metal rear sight)
Sig P226 X5 Competition
Sig P220 Supermatch 45 ACP
Glock 34 with Bar-Sto barrel
Glock 35 with Bar-Sto barrel
H&K P30L 9mm
Pardini GT45
Feinwerkbau aw93

What do you think? Which one(s) should I get rid of?

You should get rid of the X5.

I'll PM you my FFL's address.

Since most of everything you have is 9 and 45... I would dump the 40 or the 22. I personally try to keep to 2-3 handgun caliber to keep reloading and shopping simple.

I am going to be in Ventura mid June and would discuss the Browning Hi Power, Sister in Law lives in Santa Rosa Valley. I carried a Hi Power in Viet Nam during the 60's and when I came home the new wife did not like guns. So I sold it. Wife left anyhow...should have kept the gun. Been looking for one ever since. Send me pm I will check to make sure it is open

^There, you go.. help a vet.

If you put it on a list of potentials you want to get rid of, I think this gentleman just might cherish it a little more than you. Give it a good home.

PS: You got quite a collection. Would many most here jealous.
PPS: The fact that you're getting the most offers for the X-5 probably means you should keep it ;)

I would lose the Super Match. I had one but didn't like the trigger pull or trigger reset.

The X-Five doesn't fit the BOX where the Glocks do.

These are the two I would consider.

Dont even think about getting rid of that Hipower.

The two glocks are easy to replace if they are put on the chopping block.

Sir, being a vet, you would be on the top of the list. But, I just wanted to make sure that you know which Browning Hi Power you are looking at. Browning Hi Power GP is a target pistol w/extended weighted 6" barrel and adjustable sheet metal rear sight. Is this same pistol you carried in Viet Nam?

As I have stated in other threads, I am a big advocate of never getting ride of any guns. Period.

But if you really had to...Get rid of 1 each of your least favorite Glock and Sig...

I Myself will try my best to never sell a gun. How does that old story go? "When grandpa finally made it to the cabin in California from the East, he had nothing but the clothes on his back, a rifle, and a dash of pepper...He ate the horse long ago..."

I was waiting but no one mentioned it...so... I suggest you sell your Browning GP Competition.... out of state, where I'm sure you have it stored. Unfortunately it meets the definition of an AW in California due to the threaded barrel for the round nut used to hold the weight on.

Great shooting pistols though.

Dump the Glocks, as they are the easiest to replace if you later regret your decesion.

No,Why would I store it out of state.I have it for over thirty years.My first pistol.I have about two dozen thirteen round factory mags for it.

As if it was needed, 2 more reasons to keep the BHP.

I kinda wonder why it's even on the list...

Get rid of the 45 and go pure 9mm.

Because it has a threaded barrel if its a GP Competition.

Get rid of the Glocks...You can always get one and some fanboy will buy it up in a snap. If selling quick and will little depreciated value is the question then that is your answer.

Yup! If that wasn't registered prior to the AW registration deadline. I shoot USPSA matches and I had to get all my threaded and compensated barrels welded and install a blind pin to prevent removal of the comp.

The Browning Hi-Power GP Competition is a pretty nice shooting handgun except is also has that stupid magazine "release/safety" POS feature that requires an inserted magazine to drop/release the hammer. Does anyone know how to disconnect/disable it? All the info I've found instructs how to remove this device from the non GP Comp Hi-Power models. AW...really!?

The magazine disconnect on the GP competition is unique and is held in by the roll pin behind the trigger in front of the magazine well. Unlike normal magazine disconnects on HP's, it does NOT affect the trigger pull, but I also dislike magazine disconnects of any kind and have it removed on my FN (not Browning) GP Competition that I keep with a friend out of state.
