Uncle Mike's Sidekick size 12. Cheap holsters for cheap guns.
This holster is broken in like an old baseball glove.

Seriously, drawing a bow back during a mammoth charge!? Real men use the heavy caliber spear. Bows are for Homo Sapiens.

These guys dropped a couple grand in one:


I think the lesson there is: if you go the custom route, pick a platform you may get your money back from if you sell it. Also, pretty sure there was a touch of sarcasm and truth stretching in the video.

Look through the comments, it is a mockery of salient arms. Thanks for the input though.

there's always someone willing to spend money on a gun!

even a Hi-Point!

now personally, i'd never spend that kind of money on that inexpensive a handgun, but far from me to tell others how to spend their money.

Many people interested in firearms are schooled in engineering, machining, ballistics, metallurgy. The improvement in firearms patents were created by these experimenters'. The bored through revolver cylinders loading gates and self contained ammunition etc. The list is endless.

That was why I mentioned the sarcasm and truth stretching.

But you could polish a turd to make it function quite well, but would the juice be worth the squeeze?

The thing is even my own preconceived notions of Hi-Point as a crappy arm existed for decades, so the 'Well was tainted' well before I came into contact with any HI-Points, and when I did, it was already broken (blown up) reinforcing my view of HP's being junk, Yet dealing with their repair people soon changed that to a grudging respect, only to improve over time, with the repiared firearm doing its own best PR work.
The proof is in its performance.
The thing is, even if it was a basket of runny crap of a gun, their lifetime warranty more than makes up for any of the firearms shortcomings.

In this age I find any industry and their product support (warranty) can run from non-existant to conditional to in the case of Hi-Point awesome!
Sears is troublesome and conditional, Dodge is another, Maytag, Wilson Industrial Door are some examples of big companies with limits on products.

HI-Point will warrant anything they have built 100%
Wither it was the first item off the production line to something built 10 years ago. They stand behind their products 100%.

You have to look long and hard for that level of commitment.
