The Hi Point is NOT what I would ever own, unless I wanted a gun that I _hoped_ would be stolen.

Yeah, that's it. I'd get a Hi Point as a decoy pistol.

If hi-points werent around the my god what would we bash on a daily basis.

Fact of the matter is that they work and will go boom when you need them to and yes they are ugly as stink and heavy. Does the sigma have any torture videos?


And they do not have jamming issues any more than say a taurus or keltec.

The sigma was plauged by problems and S&W finally worked it out.

Hi-point did the same thing and make reliable firearms. I owned a C9 at one point but traded it for ammo and it was a good very accurate pistol.

Are the first 4 even around anymore? I guess if it was 1999 we could bash them .

I take it you own a keltec/rock island/para/H&K or one of the other bashable firearms that exist


if anyone gets huffy I know these are quality guns but each have something to bash whether it be price or whatnot.

If nothing else, get the Smith because it's so much easier to field strip and clean.
Hi-Point requires a hammer and punch to take apart.

Bear that's an understatement, those Sigmas have lawyer triggers. The High Point may indeed be one of the biggest pieces of junk out there but it has a better trigger that those Sigmas. How can a person accurately shoot a Sigma beyond me.

Here's advice that I now live by after several hasty decisions that left me with a gun that was "good enough" and not something I really wanted:

Take your time and look around. If you got $200 to spend, you are very close to a used (nothing wrong with used, especially when we're talking quality) higher (not top) end handgun. SAVE UP! Your options will grow exponentially and you will have so much more fun when shopping for the "one". And with just a bit more resources you can find a handgun that will fit your needs and last the rest of your life.

Tell us a little bit about what you want this pistol to be. (carry, home/truck gun) That would help us, help you better. If this is your first handgun I would tell you to shoot a couple .357 revolvers and strongly consider one. A Ruger GP100 can be found for $400 or less, depending on condition. That gun will never die!

Give us a little more info and we'll get you into something you can trust your life with and be damn proud of!

I want to let each and every one of you Sigma trigger haters shoot "The Worlds Greatest Sigma™". All your wimpy fingers.

I believe a range report with "The Worlds Greatest Sigma™" is needed.

Stay Tuned...

Will Shihan convince a forum of Sigma haters on the awesomeness?

Will people come to realize the Sigma is superior to the Glock?
