I wonder if whoever put the pistol grip on realizes that he's violating federal law unless he gets the tax stamp for it as a short barreled rifle? Being a Hi Point, the tax stamp would probably cost more than the gun.

I wonder if we are seeing this type of pistol taking on the old Saturday night special title as a cheap throw away pistol. I bet in the larger cities you find
these are involved in more crimes because of there low costs.Besides have
any of you seen the sights that go on the side of the pistol so if you want to
shoot it sideways you can still aim.I hardly believe many people really buy them.
First off, I have to ask if anyone here has actually ever shot a Hi Point much less owneed one?!?!? They are great working guns with the hands down best warranty and customer service in the industry!
I own many different types of guns. From expensive to inexpensive, and the HP's will compete equally with any of them.
But most importantly......ErikGr7, you do realize that stealing my pic from my photobucket account is at bare minimum unethical!?!?
It was huge, uncomfortable, and unreliable (and 9mm I later determined to be insufficient for my purposes). They are also quite difficult to maintain.
I sold it and got a 1911. I won't say the 1911 was perfect (had some extractor issues), but quite an improvement.
My Glock functions flawlessly every time.
If my choice was between a Hi Point and a rock, I'd take the Hi Point. If it were between a new HP and a very used Glock, I'd take the Glock.
I'm not saying they don't have their place (and I've heard nothing bad about the carbines), but just like Peavey guitars, I've grown past them now.

Lets start a POLL whose guns have jammed and whose haven't
Question:Jam Poll not a bash
Jam - 39 (59.1%)
no jam - 27 (40.9%)
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

Stetson, it's cheaper to buy a stolen gun from a drug dealer than to buy a legal gun from a private citizen or a gun dealer.
Cheap guns are all someone on a fixed income can afford to buy.
There is an extreme issue now with short barreled rifles and shotguns.
That is why so many are buying AR's, Sig 556, 522LR and even long S&W hunting revolvers.
One shot one kill. Spend the $8,500 and get a nice Barret 50 cal.
