Been thinking about getting one of these. Seems like they'd make an OK HD gun. They cycle hollowpoints fine and they always go bang when you pull the trigger.
I don't think people judge high points fairly. If you see someone with a brand new 1911 and there having some sort of minor issue cycling some ammo or what have you, people will say "oh you just have to break it in". If you see someone with a brand new high point, and their having issues, people say it's a piece of crap. For some odd reason, at least from what I've noticed, people set the high point to a higher standard. It's important to remember what's the $150 gun and what's the $1000 gun.
