    Got it from the local HP dealer. Some poor schmuck bought it and then a couple days later came back with his wife and sold it back to the dealer.

    Got my "Like new" JHP45 from the same place. $129 OTD.

    Got my 995 there Brand new!

    good deal! So far the only used Hi-Point I've seen around here is the one I was selling. I really want a .45...maybe it's time to start sucking up to Santa :D
  13. I think that you are really going to like that .380 I bough 1 for my wife and we love it. Its a great gun after 200 rounds threw it we have not had a single problem with it.
  14. I have the .380. It was my first Hi-Point. It's fun to shoot and a good weapon. Have 120 rounds through t wo far with no problems.

    Well, I just returned from a trip to the range to try the "New" .380.

    No damn wonder this guy's wife brought him back to sell it back to the dealer.

    I started to load the CCI blazers into the mag and they would hardly fit past the tight feed lips.

    I refrained from bending anything till I got the mag loaded and in the gun.

    Round would not chamber. Nose dive bigtime! I removed the mag and set it aside.

    I had taken with me, my hicap C9 mag. Loaded it up, slapped it around a little, slammed it into the .380 and abra-cadabra I had a problem free gun!! Yipee!

    Unloaded the other problem mag, tweeked the lips apart and I was in business.

    I had 1 FTE because I LW'd it. I corrected the root cause of the user error and all is well in paradise!
  16. and you didn't give up on it! I suspect some tuning is in your future with the new baby, but I also suspect you'll nail this one.

    Way to go - and I love the idea of pics of the whole family. Yes, I do!
