    I have started collecting Hi Points this past year, as some of you have figured out by now. It seems to me that the more of these inexpensive guns I obtain, the more I find out how many there actually are.
    This is WORSE than Beany Babies!
    At this point, I'm not sure if all of us HP collectors put ALL our guns in a pile, we would have a complete collection?
    I keep telling myself I'm having FUN! I really am, it IS the thrill of the chase.
    I still don't have the more common models that most of you other enthusiast have. But, I can pick them up at the end.

    Thats great macho, but do you shoot em? Don't lose sight of what got us hooked on em in the first place. Gunpowder and lead. Oh, and the fact that they go "BANG"!!!

    They all will shoot, I actually have one @ the gunsmith now being repaired because MoM won't fix it. I couldn't possibly shoot all my guns! I would go broke. I take a few out at a time. I may shoot each of them 20-30 rds a year? I have a few more coming in this week. I will try to take a picture of all them together?
     
  4. I'd collect a .45 if I found one on the cheap. But my JHP, C9 and 995TS do it for me. I am not in to collecting really. But I love me some guns.

    Now if Mom would make a pistol in 7.65 I could get behind that.

    Pretty sure that's a JS?

    I'm not in any hurry on my HP collecting. I collect milsurps too, but haven't bought any in about 2 years. The .22s are the current interest.

    It looks more like a JP than a JS?

    My guess is the Maverick, or some of the chrome models?
