    Hi Point to HK.....

    ...from bad to worse.

    You're going from a group who is probably a little too proud of their crappy guns to a group who is obnoxiouslyarrogant about theirmediocre ones.

    Hk.......because we're better than you.

    HK has earned their reputation for a reason. They make some of the best firearms on the planet. I guess Sig is over-rated too.

    Aren't there enough 1911 threads on this forum already?
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    You sir, and I use the term very loosely, are an idiot. You even started a thread to prove it.

    Nobody on this forum, anywhere that I can find anyway, takes issue with someone who doesn't like Hi-Points. Much like blondes versus brunettes versus redheads or Dodge versusFord versus Chevy,it's all about personal preference. A mature adult would know that.

    No, the problem with you and people like you, are that they use lies, innuendoand third hand information about Hi-Points (or any other manufacturer for that matter) to degrade them and tomake them feel better about whatever their brand of choice is. The fact of the matter is that Hi-points are heavy (objective) and kinda ugly (subjective) but for thousands of owners they are absolutely accurate, dependable, and functional tools at a budget price. Some of us don't need to have an expensive gun to hide other personal shortcomings.

    An HK is a good gun. It should be for double the price of a Glock and six times the price of a Hi-Point. Someday when I need a gun to sit in the safe and look pretty, I might even buy one.

    well congratulations...Im pretty sure this threads gonna get locked the second the mods see it.

    well I guess im getting sucked into this one...

    trust me, I dont spend extra money to hide my shortcomings, I just don't want to put all my faith on a $100 "bargain" pistol... I been around long enough to see that no matter what people say on the internet, you do get what you pay for, and every time I go for the wildly affordable option (no matter what it is) I get burned 99.9999999% of the time and I just end up wishing I saved a bit more and bought something worth buying.

    If your comfortable with it, than thats fine..if it works for you...thats fine

    but I can think of a lot more comfortable ways for me to save money.

    and as for the HK guys...Ive never been around an HK that did anything but what it was supposed to...

    maybe theres a crazy following for em...its not the guns fault that some think its the only option...

    this thread should have never started...it was a burning plane from the beginning

    We sell a lot of AWC suppressors at work and many of my co-workers like them. Give them a shot.

    Edit

    Silencer co. has some good stuff as well. Very reasonable prices and very lightweight.

    Hk: Our guns are so awesome,we can fire bullets BACKWARDS!

    I'm just fanning the flames. (I should probably stop doing that, but it's so much FUN!)

    I firmly believe there are perfectly good reasons for anyone to carry anything. Some folks are so happy with their inexpensive firearms, they laugh at idiots that spend all their money on high priced guns that don't shoot any better that thiers. At the same time, folks with expensive firearms are laughing at the morons who buy junk that can't perform as well as theirs.

    I've shot Highpoints. They're decent guns. Pretty reliable. Not only can you afford it, you have enough money left to buy ammo on the same shopping trip.

    I've shot Ed Brown custom shop guns. Wow. They sure are a pleasure to shoot. We're talkin' the Mercedes of firearms.

    As hp-hobo stated above, it's all Ford vs. Chevy.

    ALL guns have their pro's and con's. We all have our favorites and"un"favorites.

    I just like throwing wrenches into the ointment. (or flies into the machine). If you take my snide comments too personally about your favorite firearm.......

    ....maybe you're a little too attached to the "branding" rather than the firearm itself.

    That means a whole lot of nothin.

    Ive also seen pics of glocks that have blown up for weird reasons. 90% of the time its because of a stupid careless re loader and the other 10% was poor quality brass due to a slip in factory quality controls combined with the partially unsupported chamber equaled a boom.

    hell I also saw a guy who admitted to over charging a .45 that blew up a 1911.

    but to me, that HK fail looks like a bad, or thin head on that case that failed, it doesn't look to be the guns fault..the damage seems to have come from gas going a direction it shouldn't (because the case failed) and chewing up some plastic. show me a split barrel (not due to a squid load follow up) or a cracked slide and ill say there's probably a real problem.

    Wow! Very interesting. :quirky

    So... For just under $1000 I can get a gun that might KB and comes with only a two part warranty (if it breaks in half, you can keep both parts). Or for $150ish, I can get a piece of junk with a lifetime warranty.

    Before you start, show me one instance of a Hi-Point going KaBoom (the one plastered all over the internetz that was intentionally damaged doesn't count). Then show me a Hi-Point owner who ever had to pay Hi-Point to have their gun repaired.

    Oh yeah, don't forget to include some lame excuses and third hand information.

    how many other handguns do you own?

    how many different handguns have you carried?

    For me, one of the key secondary factors in choosing a handgun (after reliability, factory-build quality, and reputation) is whether it can easily be modified or customized. I like my firearms to be the way I want them--grips, controls, sights, finish--and if a gun can't be easily customized by me or a gunsmith I generally won't even look at it twice.

    Of course, this requirement pretty much limits me to 1911-style guns, Browning HiPowers, and S&W/Taurus-style revolvers. But Im not complaining...

    If it's ain't plastic, it will be fantastic...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    I think that's been answered elsewhere on this forum. But just for you, of the top of my head and in no particular order;

    Glock 17,19, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27

    Ruger SR9C, LCP

    Beretta 92FS

    Sig 225 P6

    Rossi 68, 85, 461

    S&W 64-3, 64-5, 60-1, 36-1, 5906

    Skky CPX-1

    Armscor M206

    American Classic II (Metro Arms) 1911

    A few .22 caliber plinkers and training guns

    Assorted and sundry Com Bloc surplus guns, mostly in 9x18

    A large assortment of my prized and beloved Saturday Night Specials

    My ever growing family of Hi-Points

    And I'm sure there's something I forgot, but I'm not looking in the safes. Most of them get carried at least occasionally, a few get carried often.

    In other words I own (and carry) more guns than most people on this forum, probably including you. I'm fairly knowledgeableand have a broad base of personal experience. And I'm smart enough to know a good serviceable tool at a more than fair price. Made in America too.

    So what's your point, assuming you have one?

    I literally laughed out loud at that. But I agree, if this man truly is the gun-toting-single-handed-pistol-packing-God of firearms he claims to be I want pictures. Of all, beside his HP. Rofl, I'm still laughing. :celebrate
