    I'm getting sick of the people. Buying all the ammo from the stores and reselling it for double the price on there

    If no one buys it from the guy marking it up he will stop buying it all.

    I'm active duty military. I'm in Japan at the moment training. Little hard to get ammo out here. Only home couple weeks a year and I like to shoot. I'm resorting to having friends pick up a couple boxes every shipment from lgs

    I dont know about where you are but most places around here you have to be there when the truck comes in. It may be a little hard for most ppl that work 1st shift to get there before others. Just saying.

    The price of anything on arms list is a joke!!! Once in a great while I will see a gun priced halfway reasonable. All those AR type rifles that were flying off the shelf after Sandy Hook are now appearing as NIB for 2-3 times what the seller paid for them.

    I like Hi-points very much. I like the warranty and its a great gun for $120 to $159. I did see one at the local shop on consignment. The seller wanted $300 for it, never been fired. mean while there was a S&W Sigma, which I also really like, on consignment for $250 with only 200 rounds thru it. I do not know who these dorks are trying to sell these firearms for double what they paid for them or even triple. If I ran into one of them I would have to give them a nice crack upside the cheek. These are the same people that will see your wife on the side of the road with a flat tire, stop and try to charge them $50 to change the tire instaed of being a decent person and doing it for nothing more than, Thank you. That is worth it in my book.

    I have purchased a gun from Bersa, which came with one magazine. I did not like it because it was not visibly advertised. In a communication with their rep it was stated that they would not be able to make a profit otherwise. That prompted me to make a comparison. Comparing 24 ounce $450 handgun with 3300 lbs 30000 car, weightwise handgun is 30x more expensive. I do not disaprove free market pricing, but hearing sob story about lack of profits makes me wonder.

    Holy Cow!! $450 for a Bersa? The most expensive Bersa out here in CA is $299 and that is at the most expensive shop I know about. If you got it on Gallery of Guns you could get it for closer to $225 +/-

    Gun in question was UC9 pro 13+1, not one of 380 variants. (I also bought Bersa 380cc for $290 at the same time.) I bought it last october under $400, when store prices faired $429-449. It is higher now, but I used $450 as a mean price for the sake of comparison. Feel free to take any other weight/price ratio into account, handgun industry beats car industry hands down.

    I got a Hi Point carbine just for fun, I would not pay a penny more than what it retails for. I think people that buy these on sites like Arm-list, don't have access to buy them locally. Or possibly new to guns and just like it for the looks. I've found that a lot of younger guys are buying these because they can't afford AR's, not that those two platforms are even comparable. But it might be an entry level rifle for them.

    People that buy them are looking for the cheap version of an AR that takes the same ammo as their handgun. I had one and that is what I liked about it. I did not know about the bullet button at the time and thought that it was strange to have to have a tool to release the magazine, so I sold it. Any of these resellers also that are not selling the guns for MSRP or below are ripping people off. A local store by me wanteed to sell new Glock 17s for over $800. I think they should be put out of buisness.

    I bought a Hi-Point 9mm C9. The day I bought it I took it to the range. A buddy of mine went with me. He brought a High Standard 45acp and a Springfield Armory. His two jammed about every mag at least once. My cheap C9 didnt jam at all. I have not had any jams, except when I had the mag not all the in. So I dont know what else to tell ya.
