I think I've decided that I want a Hi-Point Carbine.
I know you're all thinking I'm crazy, and I do a little bit too. Maybe it's all the pain meds I've been taking messing with my mind? Or maybe it's the fact that I've been more or less stuck in the house since April 5th?
Either way, the discussion about the member with the Taurus 92 being of questionable quality, and linking someone to the Hi-Point site for their warranty in writing (Lifetime, no questions asked, for anybody with a Hi-Point). As long as 'you' have a Hi-Point, and tell them that it's yours, and have it shipped back to your address- they fix it. Can't beat it. Especially since it won't be my EDC- it's a carbine.
Their prices are great, I've heard some pretty good things about their carbines- and a couple good about their pistols. AND, they're +P rated. Which is one of the big determining factors since I sold my +P rated Taurus shortly before my grandfather gave me 100rnds of .45ACP +P.
I also think it would be fun to have a carbine- a long gun that shares ammo with my primary weapon. (Can't get one for my 'BUG' because I can't afford a .357mag lever-gun... but I want one SOOOO badly) Also, the only 'real' long guns I have are my Savage .22lr, and my Remington 887 with a 28" barrel. And, I think with the right ammo, optics, and various other goodies, it could be a pretty BA little carbine.
I am a little curious about some of you guys' experiences with the Hi-Point carbines, or with their CS. But, can we PLEASE not have people here with nothing more to say than 'Hi-Points are crap, and everybody knows it because it's true because everyone knows it'. Personal experience, friends'/family's experiences, are greatly appreciated.
And, if anyone here has one in .45ACP that they don't like anymore, let me know, I might make you an offer... The more you hate it, the more reasonable my offer will be.
Thanks, for your time, and stories- I really appreciate your feedback.
