Favorite Hi-Point: CF380
Gender: Male
Location: Texas
Age: 46
Hello everyone. I got a cf380 a couple of months ago and am now a hipoint fan. My experience with pistols is pretty limited - familiar with 1911s and small revolvers. Most of my recreational shooting has been with shotguns and 22 rifles. I'm sure I will have many questions to ask in the coming months.
Just got into indoor range shooting and love it. It's a great activity when the weather outside is not suitable for golf.
Also just got into reloading, which is very challenging, but fun.
From the browsing that I have done on this forum, everyone seems very helpful and friendly. It's great to be here.

Hello everyone.

The HiPoint pistols work, and they work well. There are other HiPoint fans milling about here.

If you're familiar with 1911s you'll be fine here. Recreational shooting is always good and is best done with whatever you have ammo for.

Somebody will make up an answer for you -- it's what we do here.

Golf? Is that some new supermodel? Never heard of her.

A lot of us reload here. It's universally accepted on this forum that blue is the best color.

So ... they guys have you fooled too!
