I was at a sporting goods store today and wanted to take a look at a Ruger 1022 just something quiet to plink with out on the family property.. There was 1 guy at the counter and he was helping a young guy that wanted to buy a guy while it was still legal. He asked what the sales guy recommended, and the sales guy showed him an $800 Sig. The guy asked if they had anything cheaper because its a little out of his price range and the sales guy said this "Its your life on the line, would you rather trust it to this $800 Sig or something like a $100 HiPoint which is complete garbage by the way" The guy said good point, and I butted in, and asked "Have you ever shot a HiPoint? and he said "No but they have TERRIBLE reviews".. I said Really? and had a puzzled look on my face, and he added "dont ever buy one".. I then said.. I own two of them (the 995 in hand and the c9 is waiting on a 10 day background check).. The then fell off of his high horse and went into how they were not that bad of guns, and the customer he was with stood up and patted me on the shoulder and said thanks I will look into one of those and left.. The sales guy looked at me and said, get out, I am not helping you, I just lost a possible sale, so I got up and said you just lost another and left..
