Yes these guys that own a gun shop made a suit up to test Hi-Point guns:
The protective suit in action:
This suit was originally created to test the Hi Point pistol that we thought we were going to make explode with minimal effort. The idea is that the gun can be fired somewhat safely while still sighting it. The suit was made from a new rubber maid trash can, a pistol belt, some lexan, and some nuts and bolts. The mount for the surefire was purely for a touch of humor.
LOL oh man.. I love it. I’d be pretty worried about my hands still though. Some welding gloves might be a decent idea.
I used to give Hi-Point more flack on this blog than I do now, mainly because I ran out of material. I still think their designs are hilarious… but the guns are cheap, and their lifetime warranty is respectable so good on them!
Stuff like this seems to me like a PR nightmare. I imagine Hi-Point just shrugs it off while counting their money though.
