This is one time I'm gonna run "Accross the Grain" with many posters here! I'd had an FFL, and sold and Bought a lot of guns before that and after that! I have Sold and Bought Raven 25's and Jennings 25 and 22's! I have boiught and sold Davis Semi-auto's and a lot of other guns I begged the folks to buy a better gun instead! I have Bought a Few Hi- points Both i the Carbine as well as the Hangun and thier is a Valid reason they give you a LIFETIME WARRANTY! I've had falures from custumers shooting factory loads in a 9MM, a 45, all the 40's seemed to hol up better! Was this right away. NO! Was it a catestrophic falure a few times! YES! Cracked SLIDE and a CRACKED FRAME! Both of these "SHINNING EXAMPLES" were of course covered under warranty and the customer got a new gun each time! The Carbines in 9MM I've never seemed to see any problem! Now, Please tell me, that I don't know what I'm talking about, that I didn't see what I saw and never had to ship back near 5 of these "LUMPS", in as many years? Tell me that Big Blocky, poorly balleneced guns were a better buy then a Used Police Model of any brand? Tell me that the Junker 9MM Jennings were worse? I'd love to hear it, as I have sold all of these and know the real results! If you have one of these and it serves you, WONDERFULL! I hope that you get good use out of it and I'm never saying that this gun is worse than no gun at all, BUT FOLKS< YOU CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER FOR THE SAME $! Buy a Bulgarian Makarov, a PA-63, a P-64 Polish, a Used model 10 from a Police turn in, add a few X the cost and buy a GLOCK! Buy something that will last and you can pass down to your kids and Grandkids, not a LUMP that you will need to fix and replace! The same $ will buy you so MUCH MORE and a BETTER DEAL!
Yes, I am one of those that SAYS I HATE HI-POINT FIREARMS! I sell what folks want, but try for the Love of god to sell them most any other gun than these! It's not a GUN SNOB DEAL, it's a WHAT WORKS DEAL! Trust me, in time you will have problems with that HI=POINT! It's just not made any better than a Jennings 9MM and those were JUNK and I'm glad they stopped making it! The J-22 is a smaller, kigher gun and most times, at least these go BANG? I mean, without showing you in cracked slide and frame oarts? Sound like a gun you can count on and pass down? NOPE! Cheap Yea, work, Yea, most times, worth the $, NOPE! You can buy dam near anything else and be better served! RON L
