Well, $200 is way to much for a Hi-Point. I am going to assume you are talking about a S&W Sigma, so my choice would be the Sigma.

Get the sigma.

Hipoints get a bad rap but at $200 its about $100 more than I would pay for one. you could also buy a used hipoint as they have no questions asked lifetime warranties.

But, $200 for a C9 is a bit overpriced. $270 for a Sigma is a bit overpriced.

Still, if those are your only choices and you can't find a used Makarov or used CZ, I would go with the Sigma. No, I would go with the Hi-Point. No, the Sigma. No, well you get the idea.

I don't have a Sigma but I do have a Hi-Point in .45. Mine has been good to me with over 2k rounds through it. I don't shoot it much these days.

If you are looking for a home defense weapon in that price range, go with a Mossberg shotgun. Just my humble opinion.

Get the Sigma. I haven't had either personally, but that's what I would choose. You can find a good used one for much less.

I haven't owned either but I would lean hard towards the Sigma. High points have a bad rep and if you want to carry it you might as well stuff a brick in your pants.

I've owned both and recommend the Sigma. You'll have to practice with it to get used to the heavy trigger.
