Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I appreciate all of the responses to my thread. Your input is greatly appreciated. It seems that several people are happy with the Hi Point firearms, but since they don't seem to make revolvers, is there another manufacturer that would be the equivalent quality/price manufacturer for a revolver?

Closest thing I have seen in the HP price range in a revolver is the Armscor 38 Special.
I also have one of these. Mine was about 230.00


It is a fine gun. Though mine shoots low.
I know it is not me though as I shoot my Ruger GP100 just fine.
My FFL says I need to send it back to Armscor to have it fixed but I have not gotten around to that yet.

On the revolver choice Smith and Dan Wesson. Owned one of each many, may years ago. I miss that Dan Wesson 357, came with 3 barrells and I enjoyed shooting it.

Pistol wise, I have owned Glock pistols for years and have great trust in them. Of course, if you don't own a 1911, that is a must have. Every gun owner should be required to have one.

I don't like to give advice on guns I have not had experience with so I will just stick with my favorites listed above. Good luck with your choice.

Yea, my fav, a G81 in .45 ACP. Would that be a 1.35 ACP? Or just 45 cubed?

Here's one the chicoms copied from JMB but the CNC program had a glitch and I call it the Norinco High-Pointer:
