Hi-Power Chocolate - Belgian Roast
Ah, the Browning Hi-Power 9mm semiautomatic pistol. John Moses Browning's final ingenious design before his passing in 1926. The Hi-Power is a time-honored classic; a true single-action 9mm that has been used by the armed forces of over 50 different countries since its inception.
So why the tie-in to Belgian chocolate?? Well, Browning was actually commissioned to design the firearm in 1923 by the Belgium-based firearms manufacturer, Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (commonly known today as "FNH"). After Browning's death, Belgian small arms designer, Dieudonne Saive actually completed the design, integrating several previously patented features of Browning's famous Colt M1911 pistol. The weapon was finalized in 1934 and adopted by the Belgian army in 1935.
And wouldn't you know it? The Hi-Power is still the standard issue sidearm of the Belgian military today. So yeah....let's all raise a smooth, chocolate-y mug to Belgium!
