Once you get passed the "Gah!" reaction, can you tell me what kind of weapon he's holding?

From the massive slide, it's probably a Hi-Point.

Thats what I was thinking...Only pistol that I've seen with a slide the size of a brick would be a Hi-Point.

Someone needs to tell this guy hes going to rip his nose clean off if he pulls the trigger :D

Hard-Chrome Hi-Point would be my guess.

If that camera isn't on a tripod or computer that's very poor muzzle discipline. At least the finger is off the trigger.

At least he is holding it straight up and down...

Not sure, but indeed looks like a chromed Hi-Point

Judgeing by the barrel slide fitting... I'd say a fake gun.

HiPoint was my guess as well ... this is the closest thing I could find to a straight down the muzzle shot of one.

So now I'm not so sure.

The front sight and trigger guard don't look quite right for a Hi Point.

I thought so at first too, but after seeing a Hi-Point, I could be swayed. Anyone with a Hi-Point who can get a good shot for us? You can show us your gangster pose, if you like.

I guess it's a kind of Glock "gangsta pistol".
The barrel is without rifling....

The barrel appears to be smooth, and the slide inordinately large. The barrel would appear to be pretty large itself...
Fake gun's my guess, though I couldn't tell you how it works or what it's for.

Don't know, but a LEO would end the pose. Looks
like a poor man's Glock, a High Point:confused:

I took this just a moment ago with it resting on the case and the barrel plug in it, note the yellow thing on the left side. Also I took it using the screen on the digital camera so I wasn't looking down the barrel or anything so no one can give me crap for that so :neener:

Anyway, here ya go.


No way in hell you will ever catch me doing a gangsta pose. Especially with a Hi-point

Ghost Tracker

Well, it's no Hi-Point. Maybe a...(gulp!) brand we don't know?!? It's a Dillinger (carved from a bar of soap) and THEN Hard-Chromed.

Looks like a gun, aka a firearm.
+1 For good trigger discipline which is quite rare in these instances. It looks like a "self-portrait", i.e., he's holding the camera with his left hand and aiming it at himself.

An idiot?

Nah, that'd be the guy holding the camera. Oh wait, I think they are one and the same!

Red Dragon

The funny thing is, after taking that picture, looking at this guy's gun almost makes the Hi-Point look aerodynamic. :D

Well, for fear of falling off "The High Road", I'll put this another way.

Ahem...If one digitized this photo & printed it on an Practical Pistol target...it would look remarkably like some of the shoot/no-shoot targets with which I've trained in the past. Why ELSE would someone pose for such a photo?

Since when does Political Correctness trump dangerous pistol handling technique?

Just because this person is dressed a certain way and taking a silly picture does NOT make him a gangsterSo, you don't think he's intentionally trying to present the gangsta persona in that picture?

Just because this person is dressed a certain way and taking a silly picture does NOT make him a gangster, nor an idiot.

Your point is well taken. Should have attached a smiley face as the remark was not meant to offend, but to be humorous.

I do however think that pictures like that don't do any favors for the RKBA community. JMHO.

Who gives a rats behind. The question being posed is what is the pistol being used in the pic. Since none of you can seem to identify it, howabout following Grandma's rule of life number 4589
If you don't have anything constructive to say.....

Its not a glock, no guide rod.
I thought it might be a Bryco Elite but I'm not sure.

We all dress to project the image we want others to see. Can you fault anyone for picking up on the image he is trying his darndest to put out?



Am I the only one that DOES see rifling in that bore? I swear I can make out a counter-clockwise valley. Very shallow, though. Maybe I need to wear my glasses to surf the net?

Who knows? If it is a real gun, perhaps its a homemade job.

Yes, my vote goes for airsoft.

But, I think it might be a desert eagle. Anybody got a muzzle-on shot for one of those? My google-fu is weak.

Can't be. The Desert Eagle has a distinctive Taco Bell muzzle end, not rectangular.

Fake gun maybe, but not airsoft. Those things only shoot 6mm BBs that would be more like a marble gun...

I'm not sure about the weapon, but his head appears to be on wrong, or his hat is crooked.

i still think its an Airsoft gun. so my vote goes to airsoft USP

Now that I think of it, the barrels on some of the Airsofts are much larger than the shot they fire... just at the muzzle end, though. That's the way it was on the Mk23 copy I had.

i dont think its an airsoft. all the airsoft guns ive seen you can look down the barrel and see a spring or something. at least hes got his finger off the tigger

On my Mac, I am able to zoom way, way in on that picture. I do see a trace of what could be rifling when I zoom in like that.

It's a Foklio Gambrini 10.5 mm.

What's the matter with you guys?

No guide rod --> blowback (most likely, I realize there are exceptions). Hi Point .45, or one of the large caliber jennings/bryco/whatever-they're-called-this-year guns.
