I lie!


I didn't buy this gun, and it DOES NOT have a 10-shot magazine. I just made that shit up.


Aw, now I'm disappointed. I wish you wouldn't lie to me like that.

I have been reading your blog for over a year now.I don't like your politics,but I think you are a very good writer. I just skip over "bush is god" shit and I enjoy what else you write about

And now this Rob,I don't know if its my 103 degree fever,or the half gallon of jack daniels I bought to drown the bitch,but I can't understand why you don't write for a living.

You remind me a little of Ernest Hemingway. I just hope the same thing doesn't happen to you...

Nice little piece of iron you've got there.

Now you just need something in .45 ACP. Might I recommend a 1911 or Colt Defender/Government?

That's a High Point.

Yesterday you said it was an American Arms (which you changed in the relevant post).

Oh, if you can jam 10 rounds in that 8 round magazine, more power to ya.

nifty little piece, Acidman. If it doesn't work out, I would urge you to consider the Bulgarian Mararov in 9x18 caliber. AIM surplus has them used in good condition for $139, the round is about the same hitting power as the .380, cheap ammo, and massively reliable.

Gee Rob, I have a Hi-Point also. Bought the
9mm. Lifetime warranty. Some people talk squat about these guns, others love them.
Mine works fine. But can't you tell the difference between a Charter Arms and a Hi-Point gun?
Or were you too embarrased to come out and acmit you bought a Hi-Point?

Ugh. Damn, that's ugly. Next time you want a gun you don't own, talk to Uncle Kim first.

Those Hi-Points are what we FFL holders and LE types call "throw-down" guns. You carry them as backups to your primary defensive gun, then plant the throw-down gun in the recently-deceased offender's hand before the police show up.

Rob, I *think* that your average Glock has a higher melting point than the zinc alloy of that Hi-Point's massive blowback slide. Get a Makarov or a nice S&W Model 10 variant. That, or send your resident FFL a missive, and he'll find you something economical you can really trust your life with. Save the Hi-Point as either a throw-down gun, as something massive you can use defensively to induce blunt force trauma, or as collateral you can take to a regional gun buyback program to generate cash for a better gun. ;-)

Right there, on the side, I think I can make out the word "Mattel"...
