Some time ago i went into a local pawn shop that normally has a good selection of hipoints to see what they had, and they were out. The owner had commented that h.p. was selling alot of h.p.'s to our servicemen in iraq and Afghanistan. Has anybody else heard about this? I'm asking because i know some peoples dislike of h.p.'s come from thefact that they're not "battle proven" and if this is true that reason for dislike should go out the window.
