Just so we're crystal clear, and while we're on the subject, let's not lump all century's together. There's a big difference between the guns they have to build because they have to comply with import restrictions and the one's that don't have to be rebuilt.

My century draco-c was built in Romania.

I can relate on the brand stigma. Hi-Point does have a bad name but if they are getting better, I'm open to the concept.

I've owned a few Taurus products over the years and some have been great, some have been junk. My PT145 was junk. The Judge and the .357 revolver have been fantastic. I know others that have had the same experiences. Their semiautos = not so great but love their revolvers. However, they are people who swear by their semiautos. Maybe it's me and maybe not but I seem to shoot just fine with my XDs and UCII. It could just be the personal fit too...

Speaking of inexpensive firearms, I really like THIS one.

I am not sure it is even brand stigma. I am of the camp that people swear by what they own. i have a kimber and it is the best damn gun ever made. And because it is mine it is better than any other kimber made.

Then when you ask how many guns they own the response is often one.

I do love my Kimber! The only time it misses is when I screw up!

On your second point, you may be on to something there.

OK. Over the past 15, or so, years I've watched quite a few shooters while they were using their Hi-Point pistols. What can I say? I've never seen a Hi-Point fire for more than, say, 30 minutes before it jammed; and, quite a few of them did nothing but jam. (That's just what Hi-Points do!)

Another thing: No matter how hard I try I can't get my head around being satisfied with 6 inch groups @ 50 feet. (16 1/2 yards - Which ain't all that far!) Especially not when I stop to consider that I've got a crummy Glock that'll shoot well inside 2 inches at that distance.

Let me guess.
You're also chummy with governor Wolf and have a rifle gun that was screwed up by a local gunsmith?
