I left my wife unattended while the OWB was on my workbench:



Anyway, just put another 75+ rounds through the gun. Was sharing 156 rounds with another guy and his gun so didn't keep perfect track beyond more than half going through the Hi-Point.

The extractor proved to make clearing a FTE problematic as updated in the second post. Factory ammo ran fine save a failure to extract with Liberty which I'm not blaming on any pistol. I had one more weirdo failure to eject with my handloads so those will be adjusted. One of the three 10-round mags took to my tuneup and runs fine with bonus occasional last round hold open activation. One of the extended mags still pukes rounds and will be going back to MoM. The third fails to feed about a third of the way down the mag and will also be sent for warranty service.

The 8-round mag failed to lock the slide on the last shot once but may have been me dragging a thumb on the slide as I did catch myself trying to shoot thumbs-forward at one point. No failures while I did some positional shooting and bracing against a couple barricades. I still really like this gun and haven't found a quirk I can't deal with at it's price point and with its warranty. gently caress the 10-round mags, though. I'd like to see Hi-Point adjust the design or pull them from production. There is a good warranty on cheap gear and then there is a support product almost certain to need it.

The sights were flat-out awesome in today's light rain and heavy overcast, by the way. And I don't even notice the trigger while shooting, anymore. I'll call it adequate though triggers are quite variable from unit to unit. Also, this thing has kydex dust in every crevice from fitting a couple holsters that seems not to bother anything.

hahaha. I love it. Do more Hi-Point holsters and get the kids to draw on them.

Eighty-eight more rounds downrange, today. No failures with Winchester White Box or Federal Hydra-Shok in either the 8 or 10-round (marked III) mag. One bobble each for my wife and daughter using my powderpuff handloads. All failures to date have been attributable to the total poo poo 10-round mags and my too weak handloads that don't run a lot of other guns. Watching the kids and wife shoot, muzzle rise is very low. Switching to my Glock 42, itself a notable soft shooter, felt pretty thumpy by comparison. The Glock also has a much heavier trigger.

My son loved the "flag gun", wife really liked it, daughter was too small for the grip and said she'd have liked it if it fit but no for now. Like the 3895 TS, I have yet to hand this derpy thing to anyone and have them dislike it. I don't know what the hell.

Anyway, the sights are holding zero so far despite my initial concerns. I even walked a hit onto a two-liter of dyed water at fifty yards. The safety has yet to present a problem and I'm going to have to say that I like its profile and placement. Oh, the 10-round mag I tweaked to run well enough as a range unit has started dropping free.

I'm as fast with the CF 380 COMP as my USP compact on first shot on target from AIWB once warmed up. A little slower cold but only because I haven't spent enough time with the pig to have the safety and revolver grip on autopilot. Despite the safety and longer barrel, I'm amazed the two are comparable.

It also makes me drop first shots with the HK if I run the German thing second. Sights on the Hi-Point are set for a dead center hold and highly visible. The USP drives the dot and is less visible with the white dot so I try to center hold with the top of the sight for a couple reps before I get the correct sight picture back online.

Oh, my splits are faster with the 'Murkin wonder. But it's a heavy-rear end 380 ACP with compensator, lighter/shorter trigger, and doesn't rock my steel plates as hard. The Short & Weak really sets them swinging with my current stand and part of the time difference is spent getting a bead on the bucking steel. The USPc is still slower on paper but a by a more reasonable amount.

I just clicked this and the auction had ended minutes prior. I am only saved from a complete tantrum by the knowledge that my wife would have ripped me a new rear end in a top hat for spending the money.

Edit: Just showed the closed auction to my wife and started shouting profanities at the ceiling when she replied that it'd have been okayed.

Robocop 2. Other than the cool as poo poo robots and stop motion, it sucked balls.

The design by committee protocols were also awesome.

And Robocop casually walking into the corporate press conference with a fifty cal.

The chain muggings at the beginning were also great.

2 wasn't bad. It wasn't as amazing as 1, but it was still a good movie in its own right.

If you want bad robocop it's all about 3. Holy poo poo 3.

Hot drat, a 9mm Hi-Point pistol with hard case and Kershaw Scallion for $99 shipped:

http://www.cabelas.com/product/HI-P...=12&WT.tsrc=AFF

Hi-Point sells that knife for $39 on their webstore. So you effectively get a fully warrantied handgun and serviceable case for $60+transfer fee.

If you did that extended mag base in an American flag themed paint job it would be fitting 'cause that bitch is in distress.

I'm fairly sure it still fits the definition of handgun.

Still better than a Lorcin.

Oh hey, someone makes an aftermarket rear sight:

If the factory rear gives me any trouble, I'll have to remember this.
