First time here. A little about me, I can't spell most of the time so be prepared. I have been shooting for a about 10 years. I have only recently been able to afford to start getting back into firearms. I had to sell my other collection in the late 90's due to finacial strain. I heard on a forum a bunch of Glock owners talking about how much of a pile Hi-Point firearms were. I though for $129 I might as well see for myself. I got the Hi-Point C9. I put a few thousand rounds thru it without any problems, I thought it was a great gun and still do. I then bought a Sigma 40ve by S&W, I have about 23K round through that one and have never had a problem with that one either. I have gotten into hunting over the past couple of years and got a 30-06 Savage and a .243 Savage, both bolt actions. I inherited a 16 ga SBS from my grandfather a few years ago form WWII and its a great gun for how old it is. I have never been able to find anything online about it. If you have ever heard of a Vector 16 ga, side by side I would love to hear from you in regard to its value. I also have a Mossberg 500 and most recently I purchased a Glock 17 Gen 3. I like the G17, i can knock the bull out of most targets at 25 yards with it. I look forward to being on this forum and sharing with all of you.
