    Hello from Washington

    Hi, my name is Tim and I live in Washington state. Please no flaming the name. (timmydogg) It's a nickname from my friends and in no way am I a gangster type person. I love guns and hope to learn from this site. So far I have acquired a H&R Pardner pump 12 gauge, H&R 922 pistol, and an old mauser that I can't identify. Soon to be purchasing a Hi-point 45 and 9mm compact. Going to shoot my buddy's 9mm this weekend and that should be the deal breaker there if all goes well. I would rather have one of everything than one $1000 firearm.

    Anyone have any opinions on Hi-point pistols? I would like to hear from people who have owned them.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    If you can post a picture of the weapon you can't identify to the appropriate section of the forum, I'll bet someone will identify it for you.

    PS - I 2nd the motion that CopperKnight started just below this reply. (IMHO; please resist the temptation...; cheap guns are... cheap guns!) This I say regarding the Hi-Point. Do yourself a favor & save up for something more like A Sig CPO (Certified Pre Owned) or something else of a higher quality. Talk to James after you check out this website:

    or check out

    Welcome from another Washingtonian.

    Having never fired a Hi-Point, I have no opinion on their function. Having seen them however, I found them to be...ummm...let's just say...not the prettiest gun on the block. But I try to to judge a book by it's cover.
