I think a lot of people buy into the marketing of the big companies, I won't lie you get what you pay for a lot of times, but there are a lot of quality firearms on the cheap.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of what they want to buy and shoot though.

So those are all low-end newbie guns? Darn, and here I thought I was just looking at some good ol' working gun's that wouldn't break the bank. Silly me.

I really expected the M&P15 Sport to be high on the list. It's not even there.
Someone replied about the Nagant Revolver being expensive to shoot:
Why buy a gun in one caliber to have to buy something to make it good for you to fire? JMO but spending 70 bucks to put in a new cylinder takes away the purpose of buying a collectible firearm.Luckily you can get .32 ACP cylinders for them to shoot a little cheaper.
I know folks that shoot .32 SW long in the existing cylinder...but I am not advising that here.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

I also just don't understand that when you call a spade a spade in the firearms world, people get all worked up about. It would be like going to a car dealership and saying that Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic is a budget minded vehichle, and then have people arugue with you like they are a luxury vehicle.
The Ruger MKIII 22/45 is the worst handgun in history to take apart, but is one of the funnest to shoot...
Nice. I have #2 and #15 and am considering picking up #9.

How about those Hi Points? They are selling more now. I know several people with Hi Points and from what I've seen and heard from them they are dependable and accurate guns. Break them in right, polish the feed ramp and they shoot well. Sure they are ugly and bulky and not right for CCW, but for range, plinking, and home defense they will serve you well... and they are inexpensive.
The LAST guy I dealt with I met on GunsAmerica.com, his shop is Union Outfitters in West Virginia. Jan 1st he starts an "End of the Year" layaway on his inventory. 10% down and you have to make SOME kind of payment on the first of each month. Shipping is free so you're really only paying a transfer fee. Great guy to deal with and he has a TON of stuff. I've seen buds and looked but ended up going to Union Outfitters and don't regret it! I had my gun a following tuesday after shipping Saturday.
