Coming from a very poor family, I believe that poor citizens have the same right to defense that middle class (if there is one left) and the wealthy have.

    Also, they are cheap enough that you could buy a few to stash in those Festus' SHTF emergency cache buckets! Can you imagine tens or hundreds of thousands of Hi-Point pistols and carbines buried all over the country? Seems reasonable to me!

    I knew I needed more guns

    I thought your supposed to buy a new once you've fired 5k rounds thorugh it.

    My 995 has ~7500 through it, the barrel still looks good, and all the hot lead goes to the same spot at 50 yards. I get a little sloppy at 115 yards, and only manage to put a five magazine (50 rd) string of fire in a 6-8 inch circle. Not bad for a $189 PCC.

    Hey man I was just kidding. I'm gonna pick one, maybe two up when I get back to SLC the end of this month. One of my buddies is a huge Hi-Point pistol fan. A few other friends swear by their carbines. I'm amazed that such an inexpensive gun shoots so well. They are difficult to disassemble though. Guess you can't have everything.

    Crazy,
    While I like blaming 0bama, I think your history may be causing the delay.

    GF,
    I know you were kidding. The HiPoints are hard to disassemble because they weren't designed to need cleaning after every other magazine.

    Have you had trouble before, with NICS? The reason I ask, I'm told that generally once you run into a problem with NICS, it will usually keep on occuring. Even if you're eventually Ok'd to purchase the firearm.

    I know, for me, every time a gun dealer does a NICS check for me, there's usually a momentary hesitation, but it does go through.

    I have a .40, and the firing pin broke also, but they replaced it quickly and for free.
