These SNS pistols are the BDSM of the firearms world... and some of us are into that kinky ZAMAK stuff. Seriously though, the low-tier gunshops in my area never last long enough to take in this kind of goodness used... so I am hoping someone will carry them. As I said though, even finding HiPoints is hard. There is a shop that carries new HiPoints, but they jack the price up (+$50 above market), I suspect there is a legit racist component because it's that kind of gunshop, but I'm not willing to pay a $50 "boomer tax" to get a JA-9... I've just never owned one and want to play around with it... a pink one, or maybe a $100 bill hydro-dip.
There's not a huge margin in low-end guns, which is why shops that have a good trade in higher margin guns often don't carry the cheap stuff. I've seen new HiPoint pistols well over $200 at gun shows recently. I'm charging 10% to a buddy of mine on a Yeet Cannon TB, and after shipping, he's gonna pay me just under $200 before sales tax.

I bought the 9A used about 2 months ago (used) and i actually like it a lot, Im new to guns and shooting so i kinda have to figure the gun out the the rear sight is favored towards the right and my shot grouping is getting better, thinking it will be good if i adjust the sight. i also just bought the Hi Point 45 ACP and it makes me look like a pro. Im also new to this forum by the way.
Welcome fellow firearms enthusiast! Got any Legos?

Welcome.

That said, I highly encourage you start collecting obscure variations of nonsense "Saturday Night Special" (SNS) firearms. It's more expensive if you pick one model/brand and then try to obtain literally every single mechanical variation first, then move on to the cosmetic variations. Except the Raven series and the very early Jennings, most of the common SNS guns remain cheap enough to start a decent collection. Alternately, follow the 9mm HiPoints through their design evolution, it's fascinating stuff.

I only tell you this because every interest is better if you turn it into a hobby and every hobby is better if you get so obsessed that people confuse your obsessions with some form of autism (some of us have that anyway). I think you'll find gun ownership, and shooting, are more fun if you have something to focus on and make building your collection a great Indiana Jones like adventure throughout the gun community.
This is terrible advice, near akin to a curse. One Jimenez is a learning experience, more than one are hopefully gag stocking stuffers for fellow gun owners, and a collection is a clear sign of perversity.

You've got a cheap 9, learn from that. Get you a 12 ga pump shotgun, preferably a Mossberg or their Maverick, run some bird shot, buck, & slugs, maybe play w/ the shorties. As funds allow, piece together an AR. When you can, get a cheap Glock clone or any one of the other decent compact service pistols on the market w/ common mags - S&W M&P, Canik, Taurus G2/G3 series, CZ-75 or clones, Beretta 92 or Turk clone, and then a PCC, or an AR mag block that takes those mags & an AR-9 upper.

Don't mind him. I'm pretty sure he's the jackass that said he open carries a blinged out, unloaded 1911 to dare someone to try and snatch it from him so he can shoot them with his "real" carry piece.
Legos are hardly bling, and I'm not daring anyone to snatch it. But it's not my primary. If you think OCing a Lego gripped 1911 makes me a jackass, who do you think ISN'T a jackass in your world?

Your words, not mine. You said that you open carry an unloaded firearm hoping someone snatches it so you can shoot them. You got raked over the coals for it too, and not just by me.
I don't hope that someone snatches it, nor did I say that I did. If someone does snatch it, game on. Who pissed in your Wheaties? I'd like to congratulate them and ply them w/ a keg of cider.
