Hi-Point handguns are funny animals.  (Funny strange, not funny ha-ha.)

They have a love-hate relationship with their owners – said owners either love ‘em or hate ‘em.  Check out this thread, or even this one, and you’ll see what I mean.

So I bought a C9 at the Big Town (Mesquite, TX) gun show last month – you may remember I blogged on it – and took it to the range to give it a workout.

And the thing promptly jammed on me with the second mag, leaving me with a live round planted firmly in the barrel like what needs to be done to the Rev. Mykki Chickenshit’s ass with a cactus.  No amount of coaxing could get the round out.  Thought about taking it to a local gunsmith – but wouldn’t you know it, said gunsmith was out with the flu.

After a little reading, I came upon something interesting about the Hi-Point:  Trigger linkage – that is, the point at which the gun actually gets fired – goes away when the magazine is not queued up.  IOW, no mag, no fire.

Went to a range tonight, shoved a mag into the holder.

BAM.  Sweet.

Put between 50-60 more rounds through it, and understood why I’d gotten it in the first place. Not the most attractive gun out there, but it feels good going in the hand, not too much recoil – good gun.

Count me in on the side of the pro-Hi-Points.  Got me a helluva bargain with this one.

Mozilla Firefox doesn't do too badly, either; in fact, it's His Rudeness' browser of choice.
You can  use Nutscrape,  if you so desire - but why in blazes would you want to use a browser from a company that had to hide behind Janet El Reño's skirt to be successful?
