Watch the whole video. Yes, a few FTF's. Oh, fired with a .223 casing hammered in the barrel and a hardened bolt hammered into the barrel. They also ran some bp loads, hps and ball. Pretty damn sturdy for a cheap gun that has lifetime no questions asked warranty.

you forgot about it having 3x the target load of bullseye. 11gr of bullseye .

I personally am glad highpoint exists as a cheap gun for the masses who aren't "gun nuts" an example would be a guy with 2 kids skating by but has the means to protect his family.

I owned one before and may get another one someday but probably not. The carbines on the other hand Im sure I will own one sometime soon.

Every one I know that has a high point (five people) are perfectly happy with them.

I remember that photo on the hi point web site. Also remember how nice an clean it broke. Some one mentioned a possible saw being used to start the break.

I bought a Hi-point .45ACP handgun about a month ago. Pretty happy with it. I saw the carbine rifle at a gun show last week and was inexpensive! Thought about buying but maybe later. So, you think the 4595 is a good gun?

I know I get all my handgun purchase information from YouTube testimonials.

I bought the Hi-Point .45 to keep in the truck. Would rather the valet steal that than my Sig.

The beat up was prety cool, it will hold up for one shot. The FTF, the constant tap on the back of the slide to seat the slide and the mag drop out fully expressed why I don't/won't own one.

God grant me this one wish, if someone comes to take my life or those I love arm them with a spoon or a high point (depending how you feel about me at that moment in time) and arm me with my S&W. Given this one request I will be a better man and rid this place from a bit of the clutter that takes up too much of your time.

Amen,
WDB
