Wait a minute, you were in a pasture, doing a COW?


What really gets guys killed is when they run up to their

enemies to check out what kind of gun they are being

shot with during a firefight. It's an OCD thing, keep your head

down. Your enemy's already pissed off enough, without you

running up, and saying: "Oh, you're using a HI-Point?

BWA-HA-HA-HA!"...

Really because I dont like HiPoints?
I served my country proudly as well but felt no need to make my screen name "Squad Leader-1" or "11BG" or make my signature the "Ranger creed". None of these make my opinions on firearms any better or worse than anyone else's.
What good is a forum full of Yes men who all have the same opinion? Are HiPoints as accurate as say a Kimber? I'd say no and that would be because Kimber uses Match grade barrels and triggers. Will a HiPoint effectively neutralize a perpetrator? I say yes, it is a pistol that shoots bullets. I can say this and take it for what ever you will, not a single gun store in my area sells HiPoints. I see them at the Gun Shows but no one carries them. You would think they would since they could sell a butt load of them because the cost so little but sadly they dont. Maybe they know something that we dont or something that we dont want to believe and by we I mean you.
I thought you said you weren't going to post anything else.

I too appreciate his service but that doesnt mean he has made a good decision on firearm choices. I know of none, not one, military, private police force, or security company that issues or uses HiPoints

I think in order to make a firearm in this country for that cheap in price and backed by such a great warranty you either have to cut corners or use substandard parts. My bashing on HiPoints in the past has not been because I think that its just a Sh!* gun but rather for the safety of those that are new to firearms and may put more faith in the pistols quality than it may deserve.
They may be great firearms, I just am not convienced and with that said this will be my last HiPoint low points post. I think if you purchase a firearm you should do your research and if you still decide thats the ticket for you then good luck.
My bad this is the one. Lol
"this will be my last hi point low points post"

I think you misunderstood, what that was supose to translate into was that I was going to stop pointing out the HiPoints low points. I will stick around just to see what develops, I like that someone is making grips for them. I would love to see a full blown custom one.

Ohh ok. I didn't catch that someone is making grips for them. I had a HP 9MM for a while....ugly as hell but worked extremely well. But I truly love my 995ts 9mm carbine. That thing with my S&W sigma 9mm and my plate carrier with nothing but mags on it.... I really have a lot of fun with my rig out in the country. I only shoot up to 100yds With the carbine and it will walk the dog on a human sized target at that range.

Well, sorry to disappoint you, bro, but I am going to state I feel

they are better than many.

For a full list, check out anything else in their price range

without a comparable warranty, and many guns in the next

price range with a shabby warranty.

I own a Hi-Point carbine. Why?

The quality of their customer service.

I don't own a Kimber. Why?

SAME REASON...
