Good point. I agree spending that kind of money on a hi-point is ridiculous. But ive had my HP for many years now and it has earned every dollar I paid for it.

In my eyes though, by dressing it up a bit,it is like buying a new gun without a huge price tag.

Of course I have many other higher priced and quality firearms, but i doubt ill ever get rid of the hi-point. Maybe the new grips would help take away from it being an eyesore. We can sit here and argue the looks of it all day.. but it all comes down to one thing... function.

Exactly, why not make it look better.

I guarantee that if hi point had made their guns look a little better and charged double price from the beginning, they wouldnt get trash talked nearly as much. Cheap doesn't mean junk.

And at the same time, it would still be a budget gun! Win-win says I.
