Sometimes I just cannot go without re-posting the best of the internet.  Created and posted by EverydayNoDaysOff, the gun-owner meme below gave us a belly-laugh.

Irreverence at its best.

What do you think TFB’rs? Accurate or completely off-kilter?

    HA! I’m 100% on the ‘as seen by 1911 user’!

  • Verner

    LOL. The rare advantage of living in gun-unfriendly Hungary: I’ve never seen a Hi-Point, let alone someone who uses it. Doubt I’ll ever will.

    • Kovacs Jeno

      Bryco-jennings 9 mm “brick” was one of my most ridiculous gun experiences in Hungary. lol

    • alex

      well if the ukrainians can figure out they need a “2nd ammend.” then im sure you could try and convince your .gov to do hte same?????

      • Kurtz

        what a naive comment.

      • Kovacs Jeno

        lol. you have never lived in eastern Europe.

  • Dixiedawg80

    Is it weird that I totally don’t get this???? Maybe I’m just out of the loop as a Glock owner.

    • alex

      its not done quite right…. they need to make it multiple frames. how i see myself, how they see me…that would take up more space but be easier to figure out the joke…

      • Dixiedawg80

        Ah…Thanks!

  • Dixiedawg80

    Is it weird that I don’t get this??? Maybe it’s because I’m a Glock owner.

  • BOB

    As a Beretta and CZ fan, I laugh at them all.

    • alex

      lolz mcollinoir calls us cz snobs or cz yuppies???

      • alex

        and not sure what you do in gunstores, but i find myself holding stuff and thinkin…. ya its a gun, but its not a cz, therefore i dont need it… hahhhah

    As a former user of 1911’s and Glocks, this must explain why I cant sleep at night; I must be suffering the effects of maintaining multiple irreconcilably conflicting world views.

  • Laserbait

    Took me a bit, but now I get it! They need to expand it out to include revolver aficionados like me. :)

    • jamezb

      That would be revolver owners watching the auto club have stovepipes and misfeeds…

  • ozzallos .

    I’m good with fisticuffs :)

  • Fruitbat44

    As a Brit I only know these from what I’ve in publications and on-line, and I suspect there is more than a little tongue-in-cheek about the picture.
    But while it is rather cruel to Hi-point users, I also suspect it just about nails everyone’s pre-conceptions about everyone else. JIMHO of course.
    And it did make me smile. :-)

    • Steve Truffer

      There is a fair bit of tongue in cheek, but the breakdown is:
      hipoints can be had for <$200, – cheap, inaccurate, big, top heavy, blowback (these two can make shooting them painful)
      Glocks are $5-600, very popular among police worldwide. Non-glock fans often deride glock owners as mallcop wannabes.
      1911's are (with rare exception) upwards of $1500 USD, before gunsmith fees. usually very smooth, with a slower, push like recoil in comparison to a glock or hi point

      • Fruitbat44

        Thanks Steve. I kinda figured it was something like that.
        And while it is tongue-in-cheek I also think (or at least hope) it’s good-natured as well. But I do think how 1911 users see themselves is – tongue-in-cheek – spot-on. :-)

        • Steve Truffer

          Mostly. The derision only come in when people have run out of other insults. Kinda like “yo momma” insults

  • Dustin in Texas

    Mom opens fire on home invaders in Detroit to defend children

    http://www.wxyz.com/news/mom-opens-fire-on-home-invaders-in-detroit-to-defend-children

    Watch the video. She used a rusted Hi-Point carbine.

    Did didn’t look like a criminal, thug-wannabe, or Eminem.

    She was just a woman who needed something to defend herself and her kids.

    • Pete Sheppard

      You beat me to it…while not high-use range or combat guns, they are FAR better than nothing! For some law-abiding citizens, it may be all they can afford.

  • down home

    needs a couple blacks in the hi point section

    • M.M.D.C.

      Classy!

      • rick

        maybe a little blunt.. but… down home’s got a point 13% of the U.S. pop.(blacks) are responsible for the majority of homicides, robberies and other violent crimes.

      • http://www.thefirearmblog.com/ Phil W “Senior Writer TFB”

        I agree about the statement above and below yours. That’s insulting to our black readers.
        Before you say something like that think of our friend T-Man!

        • Guest

          Y-man?

  • Emir Parkreiner

    For some reason when I go to ENDO, my computer can only load youtube videos, T-shirt advertisements, and randomly displays entire sentences in a bold font. It’s making it difficult to find the articles about the guns themselves. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just my comp?

  • Foghorn_Leghorn

    Nathan S. if you like this one, you will downright LOVE the Mosin, AR15, AK47 owner comparison chart. Post that one next ;)

    • Steve Truffer

      epic, both the text version and the image chart.

    • http://www.thefirearmblog.com/ Nathan S ” Staff Writer, TFB”

      Darn near lost my mind reading them all. Must repost!

  • ThomasD

    Do Hi Powers count as 1911s for the purposes of this graphic?

    And where do SigSauers fit in the mix?

    • http://www.thefirearmblog.com/ Nathan S ” Staff Writer, TFB”

      I don’t know… Make your own and I will post it up!

  • Rob

    I just looked at the High Point site. OH MY GOD, I have never seen something that looks more like garbage in my life. It looks like someone designed the gun in Pimp My Gun(or stole it from the flickr group) and made it real whether it works or not. Most disgusting looking thing I have ever seen. Sorry for negativity but you guys need to see their pistols.

    • Tudza White II

      I think the big heavy slide is to compensate for some other mechanism. You either have a lock mechanism of some sort or you have a heavy piece of metal for inertia to do the job. Probably what makes them inexpensive.

      Only trouble I’ve had with mine is when I used the rounds the range insists people use with their rental pistols. Kept jamming. I found that their pistols kept jamming as well though so I brought my own ammo next time and had no problems.

      This range won’t let you fire their rental guns unless you walk in with your own, so I bought an inexpensive one.

      To quote Hi-Point “Hi-Point firearms are the single most affordable weapon that still promises reliability and durability.” Reminds me to that Saturday Night Live commercial about the Adobe. “You could buy a cheaper car, but we wouldn’t recommend it.”

    • Gabe

      While I agree they are not pretty, they are more function over form. As Tudza said the huge slide is due to the fact they are of a blowback design. This makes it a simple design, which in turn makes it fairly reliable.

      We used to keep hi-points as “car guns” that way if they are stolen or damaged it’s no big loss. For what they are and how much they cost, you could definitely do worse.

  • jakes

    Dear Nathan, can you make one that includes revolver users? Regards.

  • gunslinger

    Classic.
    I think it’s rights. the 1911 seems to be the “old man/grandpa gun that’s now super espensive” Hi Point, cheap “gangsta” guns. Glock a “plice/LEO” gun. Paul Blart to the Mall Ninja Gecko45

    at least as a non-user/owner of any (although i’ve been wanting a 1911)

  • Jamie Clemons

    Hi-point at 35 ounces with a 4.5″ barrel, the firearm, with its 10+1 capacity, is the same size as the 1911a1 .45ACP with its 35 oz. weight and 7+1 capacity, which many consider to be concealable, while the 40SW is 0.75 inches shorter in length and only 0.1 inches wider.
