They are a cheap gun to toss in the toolbox (doubles as a bad hammer) and not worry about damaging the finish. One of my pals has one he puts in the tractor toolbox, it is better than nothing, but not much.
Guy wants to pick up used wads from the ground and reuse them. I gave my opinion and I am the evil bad guy. Others want to send him bags of new wads while they praise him for being frugal and bash me for my 2 cents mods included.
A different Guy wants to save a few bucks and buy a lesser brand pistol just to plink with. He is in turn told the pistol is junk and told to have some self-respect and buy something else. Where are the same guys sending the free wads to help this guy by sendibg him a free and better gun?
Just trying to understand this whole concept of when someone is being frugal and when they are being ridiculous. Heavens no I won't be giving my opinion. And no I'm not picking on anybody here because they gave their opinion.
I shot a 45 once and it worked for the few times I fired it. It was big, heavy, ugly, not very accurate but it did go bang each time I pulled the trigger. From other reports on these guns I must have been lucky that it did go off each time. A guy I work with bought one, I don't know if he got a chance to shoot it yet but he likes it. Of course he isn't much of a gun guy, he bought it because of the price. I would not buy one because they are big, heavy, ugly and, in my experience, not very accurate.
One positive about the guns, if you use it for self defense and it doesn't go bang when it's supposed to they are so heavy that you could hit the person with it and probably get close to the same results!
Say what you want but I have sent hundreds more other brand pistols for repair and only sent two, get that two hi points for repair. I have seen some with a lot of rounds and they are still shooting. Yes, I prefer my Smith 59 or Glock 17 or my Buckmark and most of the other pistols I own but I've seen a lot of Hi points go pop when others would not. Jackie B.
Just for fun...???
Sure, why not. It's your money. For the time being at least...You get to decide what you want to spend it on "For Fun".
Heck, how many people in the general population would agree that spending thousands of dollars every year to attempt to break flying targets with a shotgun is a wise or frugal way to spend your money..???
Go for it.
