Yes sir but then again I drive about 70 miles for everything. The closest town is 25 miles and has a population of less than 15000. Theres a couple of LGS and Wat Mart. Besides I try to take advantage of this cheap fuel every chance I get!!!!GRRRRRR!!!!!!

That would probably be the smart thing to do but not much into Glocks. Good guns I'm sure but not for me. Have a 1911 and an XDS so if it doesn't work out what the hell. New it was 169.

A friend has a .45 that has (he tells me) over 5000 rounds through it. I have shot it, and though it is a brick, shoots accurately. They are bulky and ugly, but I would own one. That said, a used Hi-point .45 and 2 boxes of ammo for $200 seems high. I would offer $150.

High Points are great guns. Mine started jamming one time. That meant it was time to clean it. Duh.

These two statements put together mean absolutely nothing about hi point quality. Anything mechanical can have a failure induced. That's like saying gas engines suck because they won't run on water and without oil.

There still junk. there better fit and finish on my suns bb gun. I owned the c9 and i just not happy with it the fist time out to the range it jammed on ever mag i put thew it. Yeah yeah when you get a hi point you should adjust the mag lips did it and polish the feed ramp did it. Then it kind of worked after 1000 rounds it felt loose and made all kinds of weird noses. About this time I bought my m&p and wright out of the box there was no problems, The M&P 9 only cost me at this time $459.00 then I bought a cimarron 1911 m1 that only cost me $400.00. There is a lot of inexpensive guns out there but if just pay a little more you will get a better gun

I can say my hp .40 never jammed until i tried federal hydra shox. I dont know if it was the specific ammo or hollow points in general, needless to say i never bought anything but fmjs after that. I never had any mag or feed issues with fmjs, fired flawlessly out of the box.

I have a buddy that bought a new Sig and had a lot of trouble with it while shooting at my house. He was so pissed cause my $300 RIA .45 and my $200 hi-point and another buddy's glock were firing flawlessly and he was constantly clearing his.

Id have been on the phone with the manufacturer if i had that much trouble with a new gun, just my $0.02
