Well that was a waste of 11 minutes...an obstructed barrel and a hot load?

Here we freakin go again...
I'd love to see that Hi-Point discharge in Ray's ugly two tone Dodge Ram pickup's fuel tank and...
What is the purpose of destroying and running the risk of harming yourself even with extremely low end gun.
I just don't get it. I would much rather see a 1000 round test or the results of how the gun held up over the course of 10,000 rounds. That would at least demonstrate if the gun was worth the 150 bucks for those who need a basic weapon. Even folks that can't afford more than a hi point aren't going to be stupid enough to treat their gun like the video shows.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I see a spot in the Darwin Awards for these morons.
1). How does this video prove anything about the firearms reliability?
2). the white trash Ransom rest made out of c clamps was, um.. Interesting and dangerous.
What a joke!

Just goes to show that 15 minutes of fame is too darned much for some folks. But it does show that not all rednecks can shoot well...<g>

I thought this said Hi-Power for a second...then I was disappointed...
I DO see the point of a torture test that drops a firearm in to murky water or sand.
I have already dropped a Glock mag into a semi-mud puddle during a training and just picked it up, shook it off, put it in the gun and kept shooting even though I did find some grass and mud inside my Glock at the end of the day. I also .. eh hem.. threw my Glock at a target. It's nice to know that a firearm has been extensively tested to withstand those kinds of things. Having the confidence to pick up your gun and keep shooting even after dropping it in mud or having some sand in and around the gun is a good thing to have.
We could be called upon to shoot out guns in many different conditions and it's good to know it will still operate despite unusual conditions.
However, I do NOT see the benefit in running it over with a car or creating a bore obstruction and purposely putting a hot charge into it to "see what happens." I guess it tells you how your gun will handle a squib but still.... yikes.
The Saiga 12 one in related links is good too. I like when they throw cantaloupe in the air. I the camera guy looks a little to far forward with that guy shooting it like that.
The guy who posted the vid is local to me and believe it or not knows a good bit about guns. His videos are usually pretty informative and well done. This one looks like he was just clowning around trying to destroy a cheap and often bad mouthed handgun. I don't know if he knew that he probably could simply call Hi-point up and they would take his cut up trigger guard C9 and replace it with a brand new gun for free. One thing's for sure about Hi-Point, they know how to honor a lifetime fully transferable warranty.

They seem to be having fun, but after watching that video, I have some respect for the Hi-Point gun as it seems to be pretty tough.
Wheres all the gun snobs? I've read on this forum for YEARS, "I like it because it goes bang when I pull the trigger" . WOW! That $150 dollar gun went bang ALOT when the trigger was pulled, if I'm not mistaken (I'm not rewatching) ONE guy had ONE jam the whole video, even after shooting "red pill" and "blue pill" rounds.
Albeit really stupid video, and stupid people in stupid video. Shooting feces? Come on,...really!? How many times did they sweep themselves with the muzzle? How about when the guy was "rapid firing" and it seems like his finger was awful close to the muzzle when it was going off?
From what I've heard of Hi-point,...betcha if you ship them to Hi-point they'd fix them and ship them back , lol.
