I’m going to take this opportunity to lay it all out there. I’m willing to give the Hi-Point a shot, and here’s my proposal.This I want to see. (Speaking as someone who actually bought a Hi-Point C-9 back in '93 and watched the thing puke repeatedly...)
One of you, who’s a true believer in the superiority of the Hi-Point, provide me with a Hi-Point C-9 9mm handgun.
[Details of the matches in which he will shoot it]
If, after shooting the Hi-Point at these six matches, I manage to place higher with the Hi-Point, I will compete at a state-level Steel Challenge match with this gun. If provided with Hi-Point branded apparel (hat, shirt, etc.) I will wear it during this match.
However, if the Hi-Point fails to live up to the reputation of its online adherents and I do not place as well as or better with the Hi-Point, or it fails mechanically to the point where I can no longer use it at matches, I reserve the right to bag on Hi-Point guns to my heart's content from now until the day I die.
Think your lo-bujit pot-metal blowback 9mm is the shizznit? Have you put 100,000 rounds through it without a single malf or parts breakage? Want to wave high the banner of Mansfield, OH? Here's your chance to put your money where your keyboard is. I've known Justin for near ten years on teh intarw3bz: If he needs to eat crow, he'll do it honorably and with a smile on his face. Somehow I suspect that his diet will remain low in Corvus...
