    Here's how we'll do it . . You can participate. Let's raise the market value of our Hi-Points


    Go to ArmsList or any other site that has firearms listings, list your Hi-Point for $350-$450. If we all do this, before you know the status quo will set in and we'll flood the internet with listings that have the price at $400+

    Let's do it!

    Then we'll all be paying $400 for C-9's. I prefer the "[email protected] California" attitude.

    How about not.
    I like being able to afford at least one decent thing in my life.

    Kommiefornia already artificially inflates the value of nearly everything in the state! Including hundreds of rifles and handguns. Why add to their insanity?

    Another thing, price of a handgun or rifle does not influence the CADOJ Roster.... The Taurus Judge and the S&W Governor 45/410 revolvers are not on their list and they are definitely not 'cheap' or 'inexpensive'.

    CA can shove it. You want to raise the price of Hi Point firearms so that future buyers will have to pay more for a Hi Point? Makes no sense to me. You will have to further explain that one.

    So let me get this straight.

    You want to try to make prices higher, by putting up outrageous prices on auction sites, while meanwhile places like Buds or the local seller will continue selling at their common markup, knowing that their price is now much lower than those on auction sites...and you think that this will do what exactly?

    Are you thing to help dealers sell more, or make your gun worth more? Maybe you think if the gun is worth more, it will get more respect?

    I'm sorry, I don't get it.

    Well, I see you have learned something from the F'ed Govt. about how they control the prices of commodities, precious metals, and most markets. But they can also control the SUPPLY SIDE*, while we cannot. Start by emailing MoM, and when she inevitably tells you to "Go f&%# yourself" then come back here and confess that the idea sucks :p
    There's your "other side of the coin". Sorry :(




    *with regulation and taxation, among other things

    That would be stupid. The thing to do if you live in California is buy as many as you can while they're still on roster. Price will go up for them here on its own when they're no longer on it. Why try to make everyone suffer a price increase?

    That's what I mean, once they're off roster the price will certainly go up for a used one



    What's mom's email address?

    Still confused

    Is there a monetary $$$$ level for pistols coming into California to meet some criteria or is this for you to get extra $$$$ for the Hi-Points that you already own?

    If this is for the former where some fuzzed brain libtard set an arbitrary price on freedom; then, I'll help.

    If this is for you to jack the price up for yourself to make a profit at the expense of others; then, I'm definitely not going to help a carpet bagger. :mad:

    How do you know Hipoint isn't going to renew? There is no reason they wouldn't as there hasn't been significant changes to the design or new models coming out.

    I think a lot of people are confused with how the list works. Just cause Smith and Wesson and Ruger are not going to renew on a couple models out of spite people think everything is going to fall off the list.

    It's only new models and discontinued/updated models that will not be on the list cause of the new microstamping requirement.
