That sure is one butt-ugly pistol...

I guess it would be great for a "toss out" or "plant".

You can scare the bad guy with it's ugly looks.........save on ammo. :D

I would play with it, but I wouldn't rely on it.

SGT-MILLER 04-28-2009 02:51 AM

It wouldn't be my first choice either, honestly, but if there's nothing else then something is better than nothing.

its a good plinking firearm. Heres the good and the bad of it.

Good: Cheap. Picked mine up for 140 at a gun show, and it came with an extra 10 round mag.
Tough. So far 3000 rounds and it has not broken. It shoots a well enough grouping that it is a fair man-stopper.
Simple.

Heres the Bad:
Only has the thumb safety and a mag safety.
Mags are pricey and cheaply made
Trigger Pull is like raking gravel, and as heavy as a blind date at a Dairy Queen.
To Clean the firearm you have to use some Gang hand signs by holding the Pistol open and driving a roll pin out the back of the polymer frame. Getting the slide off is a pain in the arse also.
Last round hold open does not have a send home button or lever, you have to manually pull the slide to send the round home.
If you think the mags will drop free after being shot, you need to wake up and get the 4' pry bar to pull the mags. ( not a big problem after some work with a flat bastard file)
No aftermarket parts that are worth a crap.






I bought mine because it was cheep and I figured it would be a good toss around firearm. I would not carry it for self defense, or use it for something that goes bump in the night. Buy it for plinking and use it for that, nothing more.

If the chips were down, and this is all you had, it just may save your life. I bought a Makarov back in 1978 for $35.00. I still have it and it shoots perfectly. I keep it in my survival kit... along with a pack of cigarettes and a BIC lighter.

I like these series you are doing. Are you pulling for moderator or something??

Although I wouldn't trust my life to a Hi Point as a daily carry, you can never have enough guns. You could hide a dozen of those strategically throughout your house. Remember the fight scene in The Punisher with the giant Russian?

The whole thing was JD's idea. I'm just trying to make some content for it, that's all.

Anybody can do these threads.

Bersa Thunder
 
This is a butt-ugly sidearm. Doesn't the magazine capacity make it a little large for a comfortable carry? I picked up a Bersa Thunder because I wanted something dependable but something I wouldn't cry about if I lost it in an incident. (The Ohio authorities tend to take a sidearm involved in an incident and store it in a damp, musty basement Evidence Locker while they figure out if the incident was legal. You get back a rusted hulk.)
