I installed a shorter barrel and a stock with pistol grip on my shotgun, to make it handier for inside work. Each to his own.

Don't forget about used firearms available at pawn shops and such; the economy has a lot of people pawning/selling their firearms.

You have to shop around and be sure to act like you are looking for a "toy" that you don't really "need". "Toy" prices are more negotiable than "need" prices, IME.

The last firearm i bought used was a cz75b with almost no wear, but with some discoloration on a part of the slide from sitting in the same spot too long, $400.

This is just my opinion on HiPoint...

I'll probably never own one. I don't make a ton of money...but parlay what I do make, with the priority I place in firearms...and I feel I can afford a lot better. They're ugly as sin, feel odd, are top heavy, and just altogether awkwardly weighted. But from everthing I've seen, they do shoot pretty okay. Hmm...maybe someday I'll buy one just for the heck of it. But I'm fortunate enough to have options.

For the price, they seem to be excellent guns. (<---) Just take note of that context. If you can afford better, get better. If your budget is under $200, go for it. However; if defending your castle on a budget is the only priority, do look into a basic pump shotgun. There's really no better 'bang for your buck' home defense option than a pump 12ga.

I had a hipoint .40 cal for awhile, I bought it new just to plink. In hindsight I'd take the 200 bucks I spent on it and put it down on a new rock island .45.

I've got a rock island and love it, I wouldn't trade or sell it for nothing. It shoots great, has never jammed since I've had it (even with hollow points) and only cost me 300 bucks.

Agree and I will take it a bit further. There is no way in hell any branch of the military or a branch of anything would consider the hi-point even if they were getting them for free.
