    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.

    Welcome from North Texas, timmydog! Glad ya joined us!


    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
