Exactly, it was just a curiosity thread. People are allowed to buy guns just for the hell of it. It doesn't always need to be about combat or defense.

That's exactly why I bought one. I was curious. Why that's so hard to understand for certain people, I don't know.

...not that I ever give two damns about someone else's opinion anyway. I never really have.

Back when I first started reading these boards, there was a fellow on "The Firing Line" who absolutly HATED Hi-Points. I figure at some point a Hi-Point took his lunch money, kicked sand in his face, AND stold his best girlfriend or something. Man, he just frothed at the mouth when he cussed Hi-Points. It was almost a religious crusade for him.

Now, you have to understand that at that time I had never heard of Hi-Point but I figured NOTHING could be as bad as he said they were, so I bought one just to see for myself. In MY experience they're not bad at all. I had a lot of fun shooting it.

They are certainly worlds better than the other new guns in the same price range.

If you're still looking for a hi-point may I suggest




I bought a .40 a while back I intend on converting whenever I get around to it.

Finally, got a message on my phone that they got a couple in. One's been put aside for me. I shall have it in the next couple days!!!

Soon to be Hi-Point owner here !

Those of you with the first hand experience and such, thanks for the input. For those who blindly hate 'em, I know a bunch of people who hate those plastic piece of crap glocks too

Love my hipoints wouldn't trade them or sell them. I carry a GLOCK, but I still find my 4095 to be my favorite pistol caliber carbine.

So I'm pretty sure I want a hi point and I don't know why

Hide your others outside your dwelling, and when the gubment comes to take your guns, you wont be out anything
