Not outwardly I'm sure.... But it's always worth it to show the ignorance of an idiot like this for the world to see. Humble pie usually has a nasty taste to it. ;)

Yeah, for those that can derive the subtler meanings of simple words, him? Maybe not if he's that limited in his ability to allow his mind to open up to and see things for what they are instead of what he's told to see. But then we all know I'm :stupid: :funny: :wow:

I have never really understood that one either, as the 995 is more or less a C9 with a long barrel

I hear ya, my local Okla board is made up mostly of a bunch of asses that have nothing good to say about Hi Points or any other inexpensive weapon.

The ONLY reasons I go to that board are the local sales and to keep up on whats going on with Okla gun laws.



wow, sounds just like the MN gun boards. complete douchebaggery from most of them. but it's nice to see what's out for sale locally

just wanted to toss in this vid to everyone, where a guy uses a Hi-Point in the IDPA Challenge 2011, He used a Brand new out of the box C-9, Finished 5th place out of 48 people and took 1st Place for Accuracy. Just thought that was a nice kick in the nuts to the bashers that the hi-point beat the high priced guns in accuracy.

This is on my local PA forum. The gunshow was this weekend. It seems there are a lot more HP owners out there that like their Hi Points just as they like their high end pistols. It just surprised me from this forum.

What a snob, let the man buy what he wants, after all its HIS money right? If it goes boom boom ever time and is accurate how "horrible" could they be?

They have a few vids about the hipoint from that guy, but i really liked that comp video to, glad ya liked it :thumb:

Have you seen the HIpoint tests they did to try and blow one up? Took them 5 videos and basically made it into a pipebomb was the only way to kill the gun. IF anyone is interested ill be glad to share them.

Every Hi-Point gun bashing thread I read I quickly discover the basher is not a true gunslinger, for a true gunslinger knows how to bring any gun to battery.
