Well, I went ahead a purchased a JCP .40 from a pawn shop today (Hi-Point firearm). Normally, I don't tend to think about purchasing a Hi-Point weapon these days, but the price tag was really cheap. It was tagged at 80 dollars, but I talked the guy down to 50 bucks. I guess he really didn't care much, and I'm sure he still made a few bucks off of the deal. I inspected the weapon very closely (as I do with all firearms purchases), and it seems to be in good order. I am going to give it a good cleaning, and I'm going to run some tests with it the next time I'm at the range. This weapon is going to serve me as a field pistol. In other words, whenever I'm fishing of hiking, or whatever out in the wilds of Montana, I'm going to have this pistol strapped to my hip (If it runs for me that is). This is going to be my "utility" go-to weapon. I'll be posting up the results if my range tests with this one soon, hopefully. Since this pistol is the center of huge debates all over, I'm going to try and review / test as many different facets of this gun as possible, and I'm going to put up all results good or bad. Like I said, normally I wouldn't have given any thought to purchasing another Hi-Point, but getting a .40 S&W (10 round capacity) for 50 bucks is unheard of, and if the gun rund good for me, I'll chalk it up as a good deal. Pictures, and initial reviews / thoughts to follow soon. P.S. Worst case, if it doesn't work correctly for me, I'll just send it back to Hi-Point and let their excellent warranty do it's thing.
