It is the HP22 with the 5 inch and the 3 inch barrel. I also have 4 extra mags for it.

My HP25 is the same, came with multiple mags, interchangeable barrels and a cleaning kit molded into the case. The safety features on the gun and case are unbelievable

I have a ruger p95 that gets cleaned and oiled every time it's shot and it jams usely at least 1/100 rounds.. My brother in law has a glock 17 that is literally a jam box.. He hates the thing.. I've also seen his $1800 kimber 1911 jam a time or 2. Also the best gun ive ever owned is my $150 Phoenix .22, around 2000 rounds through it and not a single error.. The point is, more times than not with firearms Price has nothing to do with quality.. And as far as the dis-assembly goes Whats an extra 30 seconds to knock a pin out. Yea it is a stupid design but definitely not a deal breaker
Not dumb because I've expeirenced first hand the reliability and accuracy of highpoint pistols at the range and both are mediocre at best. As far as defending myself with a black powder revolver I own a uberti 58 remmy and can easily shoot a 4 inch group with it at 25 yards.

Both mine (9mm, 380 auto) were superbly accurate but terribly unreliable.

Black powder firearms are just as deadly as modern day firearms. try shooting the door of an old car with a black powder pistol and you will have a good idea of what a 140 grain round lead ball can do to the human body. cabelas has black powder pistols on sale all the time for under 200 dollars. My only loaded firearm in my house is my black powder pistol. Ill shoot the bad guy or scare him to death with all the smoke and flame

Like I've told people, look how many were killed in the civil war. Yep, BP has a pretty good track record.

Cartridge firearms didn't start to become real popular until that time frame, and BP was arguably the most common type of firearm in that war.

Bottom line... they are ugly and ungainly, but reliable.

Just an update for all you haters and gun snobs I'm at around 700 rounds now without a single fte, ftf, stovepipe or any kind of error.. BTW the Gun is completely stock, I haven't polished the ramp, haven't messed with the magazines.. Oh and also the gun hasn't been cleaned or oiled since it had the first 50 rounds through it..
