I honestly and truly hope you guys won't have to deal with the gun grabbers and the bs that goes along with it as we have had to in our country. It truly sucks.
I hope it all settles down for you and goes back to normal.

Going to check out a Hi Point .40 Carbine this evening, any problems with these I should look out for?






Political correctness is just the minorities way of guilting the white man into accepting their terrible behavior.

Oh, that's not what I wanted to hear, just a POS in general or are there quirks that make it a POS?

Hi-Point is cheap because they're fairly low quality. Used to own a 9mm made by them. It came with a misplaced magazine release spring that cause it to try to release every time I pulled the trigger. After I fixed that it worked really well as long as I only used rounded point ammo in it. It really really didn't like hollowpoints and would jam with them regularly.

That said I've heard they've improved quality since I had mine (got it for a 20th birthday present and I'm 26 now so...).

Sigh.... My vortex sparc is on back order even though it said in stock. 5-10 days longer. I already waited what feels like forever :-(

Same thing happened with my Aimpoint. Said it was in stock when I ordered it and got a backorder notice 5 days AFTER placing the order. Not a big deal, but I paid extra for 2 day shipping. I reordered it from Midway and should have it in the next day or so.

A buddy bought a Hi Point .45 pistol a long time ago. Cheap price and thought he would try it out. What a piece of junk. Shooting at a target 10 feet away and the bullets were flying like it was musket balls through a smooth bore barrel. Couldn't hit anything you were aiming at unless you got lucky.

What material makes it so purdy?

I use and talk about, but don't sell Amsoil.

Tie-dye Wood.

It's known as a laminated stock. Thin sheets of wood are dyed different colors and then filled with epoxy and glued together under high heat and pressure. Then they are shaped into gun stocks.
