- 18. You may not vote on this poll
Yes, they are sucktastic and I would never trust my life with one.
No, I love them. They are awesome, relaiable, and cheap enough to put 2 in every room.
Kind of like riding a moped. Fun but you wouldn't want your friends to see you.
Yes for the range / no for Carry (due to reliability)

It IS illegal, however, to ship a gun and not tell the shipper that there is a gun in the package. Not to mention, if it does get lost - you can guess goodbye the insurance because you lied. So, all these guys who write "machine parts" on the label should not be doing that.
So, you DO have to ship guns next day when sending them back for work.
No, you're dead wrong there. When you call Hi-Point, they tell you to ship it as machined parts. Well, I called my local USPS and asked them if this was allowed. Guess what, they said it was. So, you're dead wrong. I spent $12 to send my 995 Carbine in to be worked on, they sent it back with 2 free mags and some ammo for all my troubles and to compensate for shipping. So, get your facts straight before running your mouth.
As for the reliability of hi-points, I say it is excellent. I own a 995, a buddy of mine owns a 45 pistol, he has over 10,000 rounds in it, only 3 jams, that was in the first 500 round breaking in period, and he was limpwristing it also.
So, they're extremely reliable, and excellent buy for their cost, and have the BEST customer service policy in the gun world. So my advice to you is don't list to the ignorant dumbasses who have no idea what they're talking about, they're excellent guns for the money, they go boom when you'll pull the trigger just as often as a 1911, or a glock. Is it as nice as those guns? No. But is it a much better buy more the money. Most definately.
now now ladies, stop getting your panties all twisted up. agree to disagree. I will never own a high point, because I know you get what you pay for. I own a keltec, and if it ever breaks it is cheap enough to buy a new one. However, at least the keltec doesn't feel like a top heavy brick and goes boom everytime.
I don't know but if they do I want two or three.
ONLY rifles can be mailed thru the USPS - NOT handguns. I was talking about handguns... This thread has drifted back and forth between the opic of the Hi Point carbine and Hi Point handguns.

Also - While the official USPS directions state to not label the package on the outside as a firearm, and they suggest to ship it registered... Lying about what's in it and calling it machine parts is not a good idea. If lost - U probably will not be insured, since U lied about what it was. And, you could possibly be in trouble for lying that you shipped a firearm.
Go try to mail a handgun....
Geeze dude... What the hell is this about... We're only talking about guns here... Ya know... I am controlling myself here because I am an admin at another gun site - and I used to be an admin here... However, it is tough to restrain myself..
So my advice to you is don't list to the ignorant dumbasses who have no idea what they're talking about
This forum has always prided itself on being able to have discussions with extremely differing points of view, and yet still remain civil and not hurl insults. There is another thread going on this week that illustrates this. You however, do not seem to be inteligent enough to have a conversation without hurling insults.
So, to use your own words... There is only 1 "dumbass" here... And, to help clue you in on who that is, I'll mail you a mirror, label it as "machine parts," and then you can open the package and see who it is...
Sorry admins if I crossed the line... Sometimes its nice not to be an admin... I never could have said that otherwise... I know I should follow the advice that is contained in my signature line... But I couldn't help it this 1 time...

Well, this has gotten out of hand. They're just guns, guys. A couple of you will be receiving PMs shortly.
