Palmetto State just put out an awesome deal with the rebate. These were anniversary gifts to each other last year and what we carried until we got the S&P

Oh, and last year's Christmas gift (since I'm putting up pics)

Demolition Ranch!! One of my favorite Youtube channels! Matt [ the guy in the video ] is a Veterinarian in Texas and has 2 more channels. "Off The Ranch" and "Vet Ranch", where he shows surgery on his patients, along with the ones on rescue dogs, cats whatever comes in.. Both great channels.

On Topic...Hi Point gets a bad name, but I guess if it's all you can afford, it's better than nothing. They are butt ugly, but from all the torture tests I've seen, they go bang when they're supposed to............well....mostly. I'd never have one, they're just too unreliable. I know Hi Point is trying to make a inexpensive gun, but they've made a gun cheap and there's the problem.

Good luck with your design for a compact pistol that holds up to 23 rounds. Sounds like a BB pistol.

Earlier you mentioned that you rework parts for machine guns. I hope you have a federal license for that work. Such is required you know.

I have little experience with hi-point. My guess is he got a good one. The one I used couldn't get thru a clip without jaming.

They have a bad rep because they do have poor quality control. I just can't trust a weapon that has so many failures to fire given the point of a gun is to work when needed...



I can say the same for a sig P229 but, it is because of the type of ammo I was shooting at the time. A simi wad cutter wouldn't feed for crap but the typical jacketed hollow point never failed.

Go back and read that again, it is not what you think. He could have worded it differently to make it easier to read, but it's not about "machine guns".

"You can also do as I did and learn to fix build modify and machine guns and gun parts, again all it requires is effort and an internet connection!"

Lol not in a Ruger semi auto! Try some Tula, Wolf (Steel case) or even crappy Geco 762.39 (cheap brass) and you will be getting friendly with your stuck bolt with a rubber mallet.

How does someone smart enough to get a veterinarian degree end up being one of the dumbest people I've ever witnessed handle a weapon ever...

Seriously...Who would ever think shooting a gun then shooting the gun is a smart move. One day he is going to seriously hurt himself or someone else.

Well you sure managed to make yourself out to be a bitter, jealous, snitchy, and nasty little boy with that comment...

Too bad, you know a tenth what you think you do and are a hundredth as smart as you believe yourself to be.

Funny thing is, I know exactly what the federal and state laws are in this industry, exactly where the lines in the sand between legal and illegal are, and I ALWAYS work legal...

Have I bought machine gun parts kits, manufactured a receiver fire control group and miscellaneous parts etc which fit the cannot be readily converted clause?

Literally hundreds of times across well over 25 distinct makes and models (not including all the variants hybrids, reverse engineered clones,and adaptations of said 25 makes and models, nor my own adaptations hybrids and experimental designs!)

Have I worked on and built machine guns? YUP!

At least a dozen belt fed fully automatic weapons alone as well as rifles and etc all done quite legally...

And the 23 round capacity pistol would be chambered in a 7mm very high velocity round.

Or step down to 21 for a 7.92mm round.

Or 20 in 9 para...

Coincidentally my FEA Sims and actual hand written math indicates that there isn't a powder and bullet combination for any of these 3 rounds to hit pressure or energy levels that peak the 70% of the way to the 80% safety limits of a single part throughout the whole design!

Essentially the damn thing is looking indestructible...

Which probably means I f***'ed up math or something somewhere... (Actually it probably isn't wrong but I always start from the assumption that results that positive are mistakes, because I'd rather spend another year double checking stuff etc than get someone hurt because I didn't carry the 4)

The Demolition Ranch guy goes out of his way to make videos exciting sometimes, but he's also very committed to safety!

He just makes it look like he isn't.

Had a hi point nearly 20 years, I do not shoot it a lot... only got it because the price was to good to pass on.

Never had a problem with it beyond its a little small for my hands, I have known people that bought high quality expensive firearms and had nothing but problems... and I have also known people that only bought budget firearms and the bloody things are near impossible to break.

If you take care of your weapons and use good ammunition, most weapons will do right by you.. least thats been my experience.

(Please note I am not claiming to be an expert just relating my experience)

One of my friends did do something really stupid with it though. We just left a private range, and he pulled over to tell me something. When I get to him he is freaking out because he shot a hole through his seat, and through the bottom of the car into the street. I asked him how the # did he do that??

Says he pulled the trigger to see if its loaded. I really tore him up for that. He felt kid of stupid when I said "imagine if you decided to check it that way while you had the muzzle pointing at yourself or others, IDIOT!"

Thats what he deserves for being so stupid. But that was a good couple layers of iron he sent that 9mm round through, even with it being point blank.

What a Redneck loser...

Firing a gun that has been hit on a critical point with his bare hands...

Shows that not all gun owners are responsable when it comes to safety!

He could have suffered a nasty injury if the barrel had blown apart!

Not just that but think of the possible ricochet effect when he fired on that pistol...

Today's Darwin award goes to this guy in my opinion.

Warmest

Lags

Ps. My apologies to our intelligent Rednecks out there.



This guy is typically very safe. I think he primarily fired it bare handed after shooting it's chamber because the damage didn't look catastrophic.

This was a great video.
