The Hi-Point Throwdown

It's kind of like Bobby Flay's show. But with guns.

So, as promised (and only a few days late!) here are the results from last week’s local Steel Challenge match. You can see the stage names listed, along with where I placed overall with both the Hi-Point and the CZ-85.  Remember, I’m running the CZ from the holster, and the Hi-Point from low-ready (though that may change at tonight’s match, so we’ll see.)

In my hands, the Hi-Point was slower, overall by right about three seconds, which doesn’t sound like much until you realize that Steel Challenge is a sport won and lost by fractions of a second.

Anyway, without further adieu, here are the results:

I was honestly expecting to place much lower with the Hi-Point than I did.

  1. So, if you exclude the set you shot with your CZ, you would have placed 3rd using the Hi Point, instead of placing 2nd as you did using the CZ.

    Interesting.

  2. I’d really like to see how the Hi-Point’s times change when starting from a holster. The draw adds time, and not an insignificant amount, either.

  3. Kirk-

    I placed 6th with the CZ and 8th with the Hi-Point. I should have clarified it, since the other competitors running two guns have them labeled as #1 and #2 after their name.

  4. Fair enough. Someone else, on another forum, caught my mistake too.

    Still, the result is that, if the CZ runs are removed, the effect is that you drop one place in the rankings. Not great, but not bad either.

    A quick question on mechanics: Was some time lost off the Hi Point by changing magazines which was not lost due to larger magazine capacity in the CZ? The question was asked on the other forum and I don’t know enough about the rules or your setup to even guess.

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk
