Impact guns... anyone ever deal with them?

Postby Planeguy01 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 4:47 pm

I looked at an ad they had for a hi-point 45 for sale for 129, but when i went to their website to purchase, the guns price had jumped about 20% ! I wrote them twice asking about it, but received no response. I won't be buying from them, but im wodering if anyone else had dealt with them before..

I finally got a note from them... the single sentence says it all..

" The price may have changed"

Life goes on.

That kind of stinks, but from what I understand, most dealers buy through distributors. Currently gun sales are up over 40% this year according to the last report I read and manufacturers can't keep up with demand. That generally means that the middle-men charge a premium when the supply gets scarce. Also, maintaining a website can be a tedious process and it is likely that they just haven't gotten around to updating prices yet. Anyhow, best of luck in finding one. I highly recommend checking at gun shows as well as local dealers as oftentimes you can obtain them cheaper there because there are no shipping or transfer fees to be dealt with.

Just out of curiosity why in God's name would you want a hi-point anyways?
