What is the value of a 40 caliber High Point Arms assualt rifle?

I was just in the range yesterday and they had a Hi-Point 9mm for $200 even. That being said, the 9mm is cheaper and more common than the .40cal. If the gun is used I would suggest an asking price of $150 to $175 depending on the condition. If new, $250 should be a fair price. You can also visit their website or call them and ask for the retail value of a brand-new model. Make sure that the model specs are the same and that you are conforming to state and federal laws with regards to selling a firearm.

What is Sprint Football at military academies?

"Sprint" football is the lightweight football team. When I was there you had to weight in at no more than 150 lbs!! I have heard that this had been changed to 172 lbs these days which is certainly a lot easier to do. I could not play because I could not get down to that level. I became an equipment manager instead but I still love the sport to this day.

How was West Point Academy founded?

I believe the question is essentially answered here:

Washington wanted it and worked to get it.

- George Washington, "Sentiments on a Peace Establishment," May 1783

A Peace Establishment for the United States of America may in my opinion . . . [include] Academies, one or more for the Instruction of the Art Military; particularly those Branches of it which respect Engineering and Artillery, which are highly essential, and the knowledge of which is most difficult to obtain.

What concessions to the war were made by the service academies and other military schools including Texas A and M?

During WWII the service academies graduated their classes early as there was such a demand for officers for the war effort. Classes of 1942 graduated a few months early, 1943 graduated in late 1942, 1944 in 1943 and so on. As cadets and midshipmen we were theoretically ready to assume positions as junior officers by the time we finished our junior year, the 4th year was to teach us other essential like sea law and the like, but the basic courses to become an officer was taught during the first 3 years.
