Little background: In my office, I have two gun "snobs." In our daily discussions, both of them, on separate occasions, have warned me to "stay away from Hi-Point." When I say they are snobs, I mean that they only carry and use Sig Sauer, Ruger, Kel-Tech, Kahr, etc... I can say with confidence that neither of these gentlemen have never, most likely, fired or used a Hi-Point firearm of any type or caliber. I would guess that their opinions are based solely on word of mouth and/or internet reviews. I've stated on here that I intend to purchase a C9 and the 995TS and nothing they say will dissuade me. My question to you, my esteemed and veteran Hi-Point owners, is what I can do to combat this snobbery? Is it even worth my time to attempt to?
