The pistol in the video was well used. Donated by a pawn shop and the abusers mentioned that this was a second go 'round with that pistol. Did it prove to not blow up? Yes. Did it break and was it not functioning properly? Yes. They also said at the end of the video that the gun will be going back to Hi-Point, but as far as the company sponsoring the video, no.
Obviously, there is a reason for the company to have a great warranty plan. Free lifetime no questions asked transferrable replacement. If they were as bad as everyone said along with the number sold annually, then how do they stay in business? If they blew up in people's faces like some would have you believe, then they would be out of business due to the liability insurance rates.
I have said this many times and I will say it again. Hi-Points are great for the price, but not a carry pistol. First line of home defense is up to the individual, but I say only if you have nothing else. Good shotty's can be had for nearly the same price. Wanna shoot and not worry about putting mileage on your expensive pistol, then get a Hi-Point and shoot it until it wears out. Send it back and get another one to pick up where you left off.
Skullcrusher, you are evil, sick, demented, twisted- and my hero!
