Saw this gem today at work
« on: November 25, 2012, 08:23:06 PM »
So I was looking for a customer's Crimson Trace special order and saw this.

First off, this is funny because not only is this customer rocking a Hi Point, but he also is adding to it's value by adding the exclusive HP laser.

It also seems that they left off number six on the instructions.

I have a $20 crossbow I would put it on, if they gave it to me for free.

Why would you put a Hi-point on a crossbow?

I'd keep the laser to use when I'm messing with cats or fish... but I'd toss the HP into a lake.

This is very simple - if it has to be TAKEN from someone else, to GIVE to you, it is not a right. To force another to work, so that you may reap the reward, is called slavery. All the other talk is just obfuscation.

When I was still pretty new to shooting, I bought a Hi Point from a guy at work as a gift for my (then) 19 year old son.

It's never malfunctioned, and he's more accurate with it than I am with my XD40.

One of these days I'm hoping to help him upgrade, but I'm greatly encouraged that he shoots it as well as he does.

Wish I could have afforded something better.  It'll do the job for now though.

Yeah, I would never buy a Hi-Point, but if one was given to me, I'd keep it. They have a reputation for terrible ergonomics, but they tend to function.

If nothing else, it would be a great gun to hand a new shooter, after they experience a quality gun. "Now, the gun you were shooting can be found used for about $400. Let's say you want to be a cheap SOB and only spend $100. This is what you will get."

I've thought about buying one to give to the G-men when they come to confiscate all firearms.
