Chris Kyle and his friend ,Chad Littlefield are dead because of a man called Eddie Ray Ruoth .

Authorities said 38-year-old Chris Kyle, a former top Navy SEAL sniper and author of the best-selling book “American Sniper,” was shot to death with his friend at a Texas shooting range on Feb. 2, 2013.

Kyle, 38, and Littlefield, 35, had taken Routh to the range to try to help him work through his PTSD. Littlefield was Kyle’s neighbor and “workout buddy,” .

It is unclear what Routh’s motive was for the murders. Police say he was unemployed and “may have been suffering from some type of mental illness from being in the military.

Kyle had 160 confirmed combat kills from a distance of up to 2,100 yards. He holds the record for a U.S. military sniper, previously set at 93 by Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock during the Vietnam war.

With sorrow and regret , Gun-Zilla! would like to extend extreme condolences to the families of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield .

Gone but never forgotten .

Hi-Point semi-automatic pistols are polymer-framed and generally regarded as simple, inexpensive handguns .

Based on a blowback design, Hi-Point pistols do not have a breech-locking system like most handguns. Instead they have large, heavy slides that hold the breech closed through sheer mass .

While making the pistols heavy, this design also makes them mechanically simple and easy to maintain .

Most self-loading pistols can be field-stripped without the use of any tools. However, Hi-Point pistols require a punch or a small screwdriver to remove a pin in the receiver, in order to permit slide removal (and thus enable field-stripping).

Hi-Point carbines use a polymer stock, stamped sheet metal receiver cover, and a receiver and bolt cast from zamak-3. The barrel is steel and button rifled using a 1-10″ right hand twist.

Some people are wary of Hi-Points because of the use of zinc alloy (zamak-3) castings in much of their construction. However, parts made from zamak-3 in Hi-Point guns (receiver and bolt/slide) are low-stress components that do not require the strength of steel. Higher stress components in Hi-Points, like the barrel and other small parts, are made of steel.

Hi-Point firearms have manual thumb safeties and an integral drop safety that prevents firing in the event that the firearm is dropped. Until recently, all Hi-Point products except the 995 (9mm) carbine had a last-round lock open and magazine disconnect safety, preventing firing unless a magazine was in the gun. With the replacement of the original 9mm carbine with the new 995 TS model, all pistols and carbines now have these features.
