I'm sure the salesman's follow-up comment would be: "But it comes with two magazines!!" :rolleyes:

In my local classifieds I saw a used Hi Point 9mm for sale for the low low price of $350.

I have seen stuff like this at gun shows. The salesman's response is always, "They don't make them anymore".

LOL, I have a buddy who bought one for $90 and it looked just as good as that. He hates it but for $90 he just broke down and bought it. LOL it might shoot but ill take a Sigma for that price.

They just want to get the maximum yield for the customer who consigned it. :cool:

The other day I saw a used Phoenix .22 for 200$ thought that was nuts.

The Hi-Point has a lifetime guarantee, for anyone who owns one. You don't have to be the first owner. I would feel adequately and safely armed with a Hi-Point, although it is hardly my first choice.

Ridiculous. Glad I stocked up well before the election.

I'm not knocking Hi Point or anything, I've never shot one or seen one in person so I can't speak to their quality. It's just ridiculous to see a used one for $350 when you can buy a brand new one for ~$150. The sad thing is, I'm sure someone will buy it. Buyer beware.

Yup, I saw a HiPoint 9mm for about $375 at a pawn shop a couple years ago. It was all I could do to keep from saying something.

Actually, an ad like this one is meant to attract other sellers more than attract idiot buyers. The pawn shop doesn't care about selling this thing, they are just planting the seed in our heads that this kind of junk is worth a whole lot of cash.

Advertising doesn't always sell what we think they are advertising, and surveys are rarely designed to collect information.

I was at a gun show in Lima Ohio last weekend. I saw used 9mm Hipoints selling for over $300. Beat Smith and Wesson M&P revolvers were pushing $500...Thank you Comrades Holder and Obama.

Really, think about it. The Feminists should be pissed at the price of guns and ammo making battered women unable to defend themselves. They are disadvantaged, and could barely afford a 90$ Lorcin then and now can't leave their batterer.

There's a gunshop near me that has prices like this, I don't know how he hasn't gone out of business. He's been trying to sell RRA lowers for 700 dollars! An Armalite M15 for 2k! Complete RRA LAR15 for 1.5k!

I was actually tempted at a local gun shop. They have a Bryco Jennings 380 auto for $50. Sometimes you get lucky with a gun; even the jennings, amt, etc... of the world. And when you get lucky, it's usually a real good one. For $50 I am tempted. The only thing holding me back, is that 380 ammo is probably the hardest ammo to get at the decent prices it use to have.

I once bought a Lorcin for $80 I later gave it to a friend that thought he could make it work properly. That was $80 that could have been used towards the purchase of a decent firearm.

As to HI Points other than having the ergonomics of a concrete block they go bang and are reliable guns. If it was all I could afford or find I'd trust one as a HD weapon.

I would expect most feminists to be pissed at you for calling them disadvantaged.

2arco; the $80 or $50 in my situation is a relative price. Yes, the $50 could be put towards a "Decent" weapon. But $50 or $80 doesn't mean much to me. I won't light a match to it, but the money is very insignificant. And I have more than enough "Decent" weapons to take care of all my defensive needs. As well as my wife and children to all have some. It's simply a matter of getting a caliber that is too hard to find and way over priced compared to other calibers. Then that truly would be a waste of money to get that gun. Whether it worked fine or not. If 380 ammo wasn't outrageously priced and was available, I'd easily spend/waste/etc... $50 to see if I got luck. But with ammo the way it is, I'd be buying a door stop. I definitely don't need ANY gun on the market.

For the person who doesn't have the money to have numerous guns, and they are looking for that 1 self defense gun, I would suggest them getting a quality revolver. They shouldn't even be thinking about a semi-auto. Even a quality one. When you only have one gun to work with, you get the most reliable technology and manufacturer you can afford. You build beyond that.

And I would think they'd be pissed that you made the generalization that they'd be pissed.

No one ever accused feminists of being reasonable.

Don't sneer at Lorcin. Here is a photo of my custom .380 just back from the Lorcin custom shop. It had a trigger/action job, custom sights, new match barrel, and refinished in gold plate.

Accuracy from a ransom rest at 50 meters is approx 2 meters. It can be disassembled and reassembled again and again with no extra parts left over.

(here in Nashville, any abberration can be explained away by simply saying that a guitar player was involved. This one "belonged to a guitar player", no further explaination needed!)

It's one reasons I stopped going to gun shows. The best time is about an hour before the show shuts down. What's left often goes for more realistic prices. The downside of that is that all the good stuff tends to be gone.

Gun shows attract a lot of people who bid against each other for the good things. That means that you seldom find a great deal. These guys start high and then the price drops until someone goes for it.

If you want some good gun deals and have some money, the best way to do it is to crank up your printer and cut little strips of paper advertising your email, then distribute them in your neighborhood. Say you're looking for good second-hand guns and put your phone number or email address and have people send their offers there. I suspect that a lot of people have guns in their drawers or put up somewhere and keep thinking, "One of these days, I ought to get rid of that...."

Hard to believe, but true.

I'll bet it would work. There are lots of old people and people who have inherited guns.

Responding to the OP I saw the same pistol at the exact same price up at a gunshop(Bill's)in the Twin Cities. I purchased a Raven .25 auto back in the early 90's brand new for $65.00! Gander mountain is selling 9mm hollow point ammunition in boxes of twenty for as much as $60.00 per box!

Someone tried to sell me a Hi Point, telling me it was "very reliable". A friend of mine bought one, and he went through about 5 clips of 10 rounds each without a jam, and probably put 500 rounds through it. There were points where it would fire 4 or 5 out of 10 rounds.

Point of the story is, some kid traded him $300 worth of car parts and gave him $20 for the gun. $320 for a Hi Point that might fire once in a while. By the way, I'm not bashing the gun, but the kid that bought it couldn't take it apart to see the metal shavings from some of the parts grinding on other parts inside. Idiot...
