The Hi-Point Challenge- A 2000 round test of the Hi-Point Pistol
« on: November 11, 2012, 09:39:38 PM »
Tim over at Gun Nuts Media ran a Hi-Point through the wringer.  Not just an anecdotal rant, not a bench test with a few hundred rounds.  He got a real holster made for it and ran real shooting drills through it and did a 2000 round test on it to include some self-defense ammo for it.  He spent a lot of time working with it.  Not to give too much away, but he did not end up eating the slide halfway through the test, but it does show pretty conclusively why you dont want to use it for serious work.  For all the hyperbole on both sides of the Hi-Point issue I figured this would be good for the order.

I would really like to see this but the links seem to be down.  Are there any other sources?

Without being able to see the links I just want to wish him the best, as I feel this testing came at a great threat to his life and safety.

Gun Nuts Media got hacked about a week ago and they lost a tremendous amount of content, I dont know if they will recover this material anytime soon if ever though they are up and running again.
