I have yet to see one on a gang member. They're too ugly, even for them.
Man who takes the time to put gold on his teeth ain't gonna buy a Hi-Point, he's gonna get a Glock or Beretta.

trust me, I've seen em. they're not as inclined to glocks as you may think. when you pass the gun around and then someone tosses it youre not so inclined to get one thats too pricey.

Gang members with drug money can afford to buy better weapons than you or I.
Do they want status in guns?
Yes, the same way they spend more for19"spinner wheels and $200 a piece tires then their rusting Toyota's cost. Do you buy MJ $200 sneakers for yourself?

Hi-point does not equal status in any neighborhood.

I've been looking at the .40 caliber.

I've seen the show 'crime360' or something where a banger posed with his hi-point .380 on Myspace-and then like an idiot went and shot someone down with it in cold blood.

Gangbangers like cheap throw away weapon as much as they like status symbols.

Does that implicate Hi-Point -the company- as a criminal conspirator?

No.

All it says is that gang bangers will use whatever they have.

Including guns that get smuggled in along with all the drugs that no-one is supposed to have.

And THOSE guns tend to be much more than what you and I can buy at the local gun store.

Yes,sir-there is a big difference between cheap and low cost.......quality does not have to cost alot of money.

I use the Makarov PM as a prime example.

I do like "fishing" with a magnet off my local bridges...I've found everything but a Hi-Point so far

Even Phoenix & Jennings...so we know the gangsta's like cheap guns.

By the way, if you take up this "Hobby", be prepared to Bag & Tag everything you bring up...as I take it all down to the local PD, have it checked out, and if it's clean (not stolen or used in a crime/homicide) I get to keep 'em

I've made out quite well doing this, and have only lost around half of the guns over the years.
But what the heck...it helps the cops

Default Hi-point, beemiller....

Mansfield, Ohio is near Mid Ohio, the sportscar roadracing track.
And during a race week had an afternoon off and visited the facility on
Beemiller road-[lane].
Had a tour of the plant by Tom, one of the company principals.
Impressed me.
The product is made well, if the device is clunky, it is reliable. the barrel making process was simple and fast, high quality tubing made into rifled barrels in two steps. Powder coating with industrial oven.
And, if it breaks or malfuntions, send it back.
I still don't have one, but would trust one to work.
Paul
In Houston.
