For $75!!! I have myself a piece of Hi-Point history! It's a metal framed C9... and the trigger pull on this badboy is AMAZING!!! I had a co-worker come in tonight to relieve me, and we started chewing the fat about firearms. I'm a well known Hi-Point lover around the workplace, but nobody takes me up on the range offers to prove the Hi-Points true form. We are standing outside of the Police Department, and we start talking about subcompacts, which ones were banned, then the Hi-Point topic came up... and I'll have you know my co-worder (not knowing I was that into Hi-Points) started bashing on HP's... they are a "piece of shat", and he would never go back to HP for anything... Well this is how it went from there: Me:Have you ever seen a HP before?" Co-Worker:Oh yeah, I've seen one before and I have a 9mm sitting at home, broken, in a box, where it's supposed to be. They are pieces of shat Mike. Me: You have one at home? So why don't you bring it up here and let me look it over? I bet it's something simple that makes you think that it's broken. Co-Worker: No, I dropped it, and now when the slide is all the way back, I can't see the firing pin. Me: I'll give you $75 for the Hi-Point you have at home, right now. You only live a few miles down the road... take an early lunch break, get the pistol, and meet me back here in 15 minutes. Co-Worker: Are you serious? Me: Why aren't you gone yet? Go! Needless to say I am one happy HP owner... too bad the firing pin is broken... GOOD THING IT'S COVERED UNDER WARRANTY!!! YaY For Hi-Point, I will be on the phone tomorrow! And Here's some pics I took of it... Look how dirty/mistreated/abused/abandoned it looks! I believe this pistol is a candidate for a "spray and bake"... METAL FRAME!!! I made a hater put his money where his mouth was... and I can't be happier!
