    Cabela's has HiPoint 9mm on sale, are these of any use? Anyone own?

    For $129 I'm thinking it's worth it as 'what the heck' experiment. Curious as to folks' experience with these. I think I'd enjoy owning a gun I don't care about abusing, scratching up, shooting and putting away dirty.

    Lots of stuff I'd rather do with $129. Remember, you get what you pay for, if you're lucky.

    I agree.

    For that purpose, I'd look for a used G22 at $300 or even a little under and abuse it for the rest of my life.

    A buddy has a compact Hi Point in 9mm and standard size in .45. Both ate heavy guns. He seems to like them, but loves his EDC Glock 21. :-)

    While I am not in favor of spending my money on low end weapons, I have bough one or two. I know I have either a HiPoint 380 or a 9 ... I really think it is a 9, that I got in a trade, but I never shot it.


    The Jennings .22 doggie gun I put in my pocket every time I go outside cost 50 dollars when I bought it.

    And THAT is what it is, a fifty dollar gun !


    Get it and use it up if you can afford it ...

    A better hammer than a gun. Gangster gun I would not trust. Palmetto State Armory has police Beretta 92Fs for $289.99 with free S&H. They weigh about the same, but are not toys. Or you can get a new Sig 290 for $300. Don't waste your $ on HiPoint. They eject live rounds by your head.

    Good Lord! I had a half day of vacay today and walked into Cabella's.

    You would have thought guns were being outlawed at the stroke of midnight, just an insane crowd. I live in the suburbs of St Louis and the Cabella's isn't located all that far from Ferguson, where all the "excitement" is going on. Rumor has the grand jury verdict coming out any day now, especially given the sharp cold hitting.

    Folks of every type and color, and from the questions being asked at the gun counter, many were absolutely first time gun buyers. I wound up helping an elderly grandma type who said it took her weeks to work up the nerve to do this, and felt time was running out. She literally asked me what to get and she bought exactly that. Hands were trembling just holding it. Really hit me as to the fear she felt ... a black woman that lived in an area def more gang infested than Ferguson.

    Kind of a dramatic scene really.

    Took me over an hour for my number to be called. As one might imagine in this situation, $129 9mm semi autos were sold out. Was talking with the gun counter guy who also happened to be the gun store manager. When he understood I was just wanting one for grins / whatever, he convinced me I would be better served by getting a higher end airsoft gun, C02 operated that cycles the slide for the purposes of realistic, easy access practice in my basement. He does that for cheap/easy trigger time to practice draw & fire, firing from odd positions you can't do at the range, etc. Good points and I spent almost the $129 on an Umarex airsoft gun.

    We'll see what the next 72 hours brings. The wife is a teacher and her principal told her the police conveyed that the gangs are posting to the effect of "we're coming for you West County (st louis suburbs, mostly caucasian). That was the first time I heard that information. Hopefully for us this will be handled well & quickly, 'cause if not, my concern is this could become the new normal in other cities.
