Got an email from Hi-Point based in Ohio that they will be shutting down until further notice.

How am I supposed to get my lifetime warranty service work now???? Not cool man, not cool.

Joking aside I do like Hi-Point and am surprised as I would think orders would be pouring in for budget firearms right now. Is there a shutdown order in Ohio?

Yes there is. Gun makers are one of the few business that didn’t make the cut of “essential” businesses.

Much respect for them for trying as a company to help out here with this virus problem.


In the city close to me where I do a lot of work they recently imposed an executive order for all non essential businesses to close and those people to stay home. It really does seem like that local gov is 'trying' to limit the spread of this junk and slow things down so as to not overwhelm the local hospitals. The particular mayor even had several doctors at his press conference when declaring his executive order.

And then the guy on the radio read the text of the order and what was exempted...

Pretty much everything. Plumbers, electricians, carpenters, delivery people, food service people, day care facilities, on and on and on.

My neighbor lady across the street works at a place that makes car care products. (cleaning products) Even THAT is exempt if you read the fine print of the order.

A really nice press conference about how concerned they were and how important this is but damn near everyone and every business is exempt for one reason or another.


America needs to stand up here and beat this ****. The longer we screw around the worse it will be for us all in the end.

Amen DG23, Amen! Did some research on it and been preaching on it all day. No way to slow it down the way we are currently handling it, but I’m not so sure the government wants to slow it down. If they do, they would enforce stricter rules. Republicans and Dems both are using it as a platform to promote their parties and themselves. I had foolishly hoped they would at least temporarily set aside their differences in a concerted effort to combat COVID19. Instead, it’s just more of the same. All politics, and no real concern for the American people. Economy? Yes. People? Not so much.

Pawn shops down here doing a brisk business. Apparently people need more money for toilet paper.

Hi-Point carbines are some of the best plinkers out there; they are fun as hell at the range. I can hit center mass with mine at 110 yards with the ring sights. Just plain fun. I will buy another one if they need the business when the pandemic is over.

Agreed. My wife & kids all love it for plinking too, 2nd only to the 10/22, but I think if they made them to accept Glock or some other easy to find higher capacity mag, it might pass it for them, but the 10/22 is cheaper to feed than the 40 carbine. Most people who bag on them have never owned one or even handled one. Tons of youtube vids showing them passing torture tests with flying colors, often better than many high end weapons. Like they say, haters gonna hate.

The pistols are big and clunky yes but darn accurate. The C9 with a Hogue grip overlay feels more natural in my hand than any other handgun I have ever held.

Redball Sports makes Hi-Point approved 20 round mags for the carbines. I do agree that accepting Glock mags would be a HUGE selling point for them.

Those are only for 9mm & they stick out about a 1/2 mile, which is somewhat a PITA in a carbine but really bad for a pistol. I have some of the 15 rounders for my carbine & they stick out too far IMO & they even have a sleeve to keep your arm from rubbing the metal. I have Hi-Point pistols too, one in 40 & one in 380 they are both heavy, unbalanced & clunky feeling. Yes they are ugly too, but I could live with ugly if everything else felt good. Both pistols function excellently & are fairly accurate but not enjoyable to shoot & would be a last resort as a carry gun. My carbine is VERY accurate & a lot of fut to shoot. I'd buy another carbine in a heartbeat, especially if they made them to take Glock mags, probably a few.

So, you aren't in favor of people with limited budgets being able to defend themselves and exercise their 2nd Amendment rights?

Cool.

I've gotta say my 4095TS carbine has been flawless through thousands of rounds of ammo. It truly has never given me a FTF or FTE. Very accurate with iron sights inside of 100 yards. I've owned it for 8 years now, and I would not hesitate for a second to use it as a go-to firearm.
