There could be other ways to do it, but at the time this seemed fast and convenient, although I tried a couple of times before i got it right.

You have GOT to be kidding me.

If you put a dress and lipstick on a pig, is it pretty?

I have seen two brand spanking new Hi Point slides break in half at CHL classes.

They are pot metal.

Pot Metal.

P O T M E T A L.

There is one use for the HiPoint that I can agree with. Buy a case and stash it back. When the SHTF, sell each gun with a box of ammo and you could make a fortune from the clueless people that never saw it coming or you could trade then to your enemies for stuff you can use.
