I never had a Hi-Point in my life.

This is something I haven't seen mentioned about Hi Points & may change my mind about owning one. That sounds like a design that is almost as bad as having to pull the trigger to field strip a pistol!

Sorry, couldn't help my self.

Actually, the only time I eject a live round is when I unload the SD ammo in one of my pistols to take it to the range for practice & since my Hi Point would strictly be a range pistol, it'd not be loaded with SD ammo.

As you say, the Hi-Point is designed so that the firing pin is the ejector. So if you rack the slide manually to eject a live round, you have the firing pin striking a live primer. But unless you are superman and rack that slide extremely hard, I can't see it hitting the primer hard enough to detonate it. Which would be all the more difficult due to the very heavy slide and recoil spring on those guns. I have seen ejected live rounds with a very slide ding in the primer, but no where near what it would take to fire it.

Sounds like a pretty mundane existence my friend.

Yep. Like I stated in my earler post The marks I have seen in the rounds are only a few thou deep.
I agree with you Paladin, was just stating the fact for the OP
