so like I said- do ya let a LNIB compact 9 and a .45 highpoint ln pass at the 150.00 for both price?


I think they have their place in a cabin or other hi risk if left there but may be handy to have piece... or a loaner or outright here take it piece... I have no delusions of refined anything ...

so what say you?
 
Good deal. I have no personal use for them so i would pass, but wouldn't blame anyone for getting them
 
If it was person to person I would get them in a heartbeat.

At that price point for 2 pistols LNIB I'm all in. 2 last ditch pistols as a last resort for $75 each and a popular caliber it is a winner for me.
 
This is only a good deal if you will either use or sell the guns.

Personally, I wouldn't. I mean, I would take them to the range once just to marvel at a blowback pistol of that size, but they don't do anything I can't already do, so they wouldn't be regulars at the range. I wouldn't sell them either, because it's too much hassle. So for me it is a bad deal. I could get the same benefit for $30 from the local range that rents handguns, or maybe for free if I started up a conversation with a friendly hi-point owner at a public range.

For someone else it might be a great bargain.
 
I will admit I have never shot one or seen one sot or even seen on in real life. Can't be worse than a Jennings or one of the other pot metal cheapies.
Or could it?
 
I would not. Price, however, sounds good if its Straight Up or Person to Person with minimal shipping/tax/dealer fees etc. Not very useful if you have other alternatives.

:):)
 
Provided they are both in true LNIB and in great shape, and you aren't excluding things like shipping, FFL, taxes etc. then I'd say yes I would certainly get them.

They aren't Glocks or Sigs, that's for sure, but they are very reliable and accurate handguns for there price point. They would make excellent truck/car guns or "hide away" guns for a rainy day...
 
Pass.. A gun of any type should not be left in a "high risk area" as you put it...

Understandable, if that's all you can afford...Buying them just to bump your collection numbers, not so much..
 
$150 for two guns with an unconditional lifetime warranty?

Sure! Why not? I personally don't need them, but they would make really nice gifts.
 
I already picked up a LNIB C9 for $70, and had no need for it. Haven't even shot it yet, and it's been nearly a year.

So, yeah, I'd pick them up. Here, it wouldn't be anything to flip them if I decided afterward I would have rather kept the money.
 
I hate how the pistols look but at 2 for $150 in "new" condition, I would probably do it if it was a private sale. Shoot, you can double your money by selling them again if you really wanted to. At worst you could break even for 2 at a pawn shop even.
 
I would snap both of those up without question. That is a terrific deal. I have the Hi-Point .45 acp. It is a straight shooter and never jams. I bought it brand new for $159 in early 2012.

I have seen them sell over $200 now at the local gun store. I would definitely buy other Hi-Point's in different calibers. Sure they are ugly and bulky...but reliable.

Not unless you plan on carrying one as a primary and the other as a backup. ;)

They just aren't reliable enough for me to own one. Sometimes you get a good one but I see too many lemons to consider them for defensive purposes where they must work every time.
 
Strong, reliable, heavy, ugly, great warranty, terrible ergos.

All true.

Not a fan of them but for that price why not.

They aren't Glocks but they sure aren't Jennings either.
