Function is#1. Fit is #2. If a hi-point is all you can afford, who gives a sh!t what it looks like! There's nothing wrong with buying a hi-point!!!

I guess but if you could afford 200 $ one day if you work hard and save ill guarentee you can double that 200$. Guns are like women sure you can settle for a not so attractive one or you can try harder and have something more attractive on your hip.just my opinion everyones different.

Id say no too, my first pistol was a hi-point .40. I bought it for 200 NIB, id offer half that for the gun.

If the ammo he has is hollow points dont bother, my hi-point wouldnt chamber hollow points, ball ammo only.

Yah I had the c9 for a month or two. I had a bunch of ftf so I sold it and bought a m&p 9. The hi point are just junk. Just like the old saying you get what you pay for

Life is too short to own an ugly gun. I will admit my bias is aesthetic, but who here can tell me that given a choice between an ultra-reliable Hi-point and a 1911, you would take the Hi-point? I know I would take a loose, beat up dog of a 1911 first. No matter how unreliable it is, I can fix it or find someone who can. With Hi-point, it is going to be ugly forever!

Conversely, I think Taurus makes some awesome LOOKING semi-autos, but I have had many issues with them in the past. As such, I won't own one of those either.

As one gentleman said, if you have $200 for a Hi-point now, bank it. Hide it from the wife/girlfriend/both and find some friends for it. When you have about $5-600, take it out and buy something you'll be proud to pull out of the range bag.

I have a Hi Point 40 S&W with 400 error free rds. My XDs has just been sent back to the factory with a broken slide stop. That said...I still love my XDs and use the HP for backup.

I have to chime in on this one. I have a HiPoint JCP .40, had a messed up mag out of the box. Called HiPoint and the tech walked me through some adjustments which didn't fixthe problem then sent me a new mag. Problem solved. Bought 3more mags and now have 2000 rounds without problems. Also have a JHP .45 I picked up used for $120, no problems with that one either. Sounds like the OP isn't getting too bad a deal.
