New Hi-Point .45 with laser, storage case, and extras $219.99

New Kel-Tec .380 $249.99

Did you look at any 'real' guns?

I hope this topic won't go off course like that.....................

I have my reasons for what brands I like.

My Hi-Point can put holes in things just as good as your (insert other pistol brand here).

I'm just curious about how prices here in my town compare to some different areas in the USA.

SGT MILLER, in no way do I mean disrespect here, but my go to gun store doesnt carry most of that crap, lol. If you want, I can get you prices on Springfield, Glock, Kimber, Sig, Ruger, Wilson, Para, Colt, HK, Walhter, Les Baer, S&W, or Nighthawk, but not on Hi Points, Kel Tecs, or Jimenez'.

Please don't refer to my choices as crap................

This is not what the thread is about. I'm just a sergeant in the military. I don't exactly make enough money to go buy high-end firearms, and support my family at the same time.

Don't be gun snobs, people. It'll make you look stupid, and arrogant, trust me.

If you cannot tell me the equivalent prices on the pistols I listed, please don't post on this topic. I'm not interested in Glocks, Kimbers, Nighthawks, or whatnot, and I don't want to hear about how your particular gun store doesn't carry that "crap". I'm asking about the pistols that I listed, nothing else....lol.

P.S. Thanks Mark F.

I've got a little Hi-Point .380 and have defended them many times on this forum. I can guarantee you though that it can't keep up with my Kimber. You do get what you pay for.
