Here's a rendering of the 'new' glock 81 "I'm High, Pointing" version;

If it has three barrels does that make it a 1.35 ACP? Or would it be the 1.35 fill in the GAP?

And the soon to be released Norico Kimber Kombat;

There was a glitch in the stolen CNC file.

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!

A three barreled Glock would be interesting, to say the least, to fire....lol.

You would actually be able to stop the threat with one trigger pull.

that is f'n hilarious right there.

My buddy got a Hi-Point 9 about a month or so ago. He loves it, says it goes bang everytime and is on the money accuracy wise. he is concerned about the possibility of it jamming and is looking into opther options for primary carry. I'm going to the range with him in 2 weeks to get some firsthand experience with Hi-Point.

I just bough a hi-point C9.

I figured I gotta own a 9mm...it's some kind of rule, right?

I like how heavy it feels. like a Ruger p95. Gonna try to get to the range (or at least my backyard) this weekend with it.

9mm is the only caliber I don't have. I have shot 9mm thousands of times and they never impressed me. That's not to say anything bad about 9mm... they just don't tickle my fancy.

If the Hi-Points don't cycle once in a while, it is usually a magazine problem. I wish they would use a heavier spring and a little better steel. The guns themselves are bulky, heavy and ugly, but I have yet to actually know someone who really had a problem with the shooting and better than thought accuracy especilly since they have a fixed barrel. I love my .45, but it is not a carry piece. Great plinkers!

BTW, Scrapper, 'bout what you give for your C9?

168 bucks. Some places still have 'em for 150, but CT is pretty heinous about guns.

The 9mm C9 is still selling for 139.99 here in Montana.

The .45 caliber is 159.99, the .40 caliber is 149.99, and the .380 model is 109.99.

The carbines are averaging right around 180.00 right now.

My first gun when i wanted to get back into shooting. Figured if it was crappy I wouldn't be out much.

Bought it used with 2 mags for $100. Fires every time I pull the trigger and is pretty accurate. I use a bore snake to clean it. Has a life time warranty for who ever owns the gun and fantastic customer service. A friend sent his in for minor work and they sent him back his fixed gun with a free mag in less than a week postage paid.
What more do you want for $100.
