    No reason to hate any firearm in my opinion. I love seeing as many firearms in as many peoples hands as possible. Hi points make it possible for many people to own a gun that couldn't otherwise.

    My experience with a .40 hi point was that it is accurate and reliable.

    I "kinda" hate on Kimbers, but if I got a killer deal on one I'd not pass it up. For the prices they charge, it should not have any MIM parts, should be all forged. Might add $30 bottom line cost per unit, and most or al would still buy it! Maybe MORE, but idk the "Kimber Buyer Demographic" very well. I just know a "bud" (we don't always get along) bought 2 of them, matched pair, and then figured out he only needed one :p Sold the other for a 33% loss, NIB :(
     
  4. Our vet bought one, it resides in a safe and she carries a Ruger. She just has had too many problems with feeding on the Kimber. IMO part of the problem is not using +P ammo in a gun designed for plus P. The other part is probably the tight tolerances and a production process that is geared toward production, not quality.

    A match grade 1911 is not unusual to run 5 grand. And those guns will run reliably with tight tolerances. That is why RIA, RR, and most bargain 1911's run out of the box. They are not made to be match/race guns.

    Same problem happens with putting a match barrel in a Glock, if not tuned properly feeding problems will occur.
     
  5. Ya gotta stop showing us all the good reviews of the HP's compared with $800+ costing guns.

    It will soon be that HP's will start costing us $400 or more to get, which will make them even better shooting guns because they cost more.
