I have the hi-point c9 9mm and the 995 carbine the handguns have a 200 to 300 round break in period but it shoots like a dream a bit heavy but still a good shooter check out hi-point talk forum and you will find out all about them

espo, go out a handle one yourself. If it feels comfortable in your hand, give it a try. Everyone is different, and you'll get tons of different answers/opinions (especially with a controversial firearm like a Hi-Point).

The investment is minimal with these firearms, and the warranty is great so you can't go wrong.

A buddy of mine bought a hi point pistol for a little over 100 dollars. The first couple times he shot it it jammed up constantly. Now when he shoots it it never jams and its a straight shooter. I think once these guns are broken in and get a good cleaning they are fine. If a person can pay a 100 dollars for a pistol that is fairly accurate and goes boom every time you pull the trigger then that in my opinion is a good deal. I think sgt miller had a good post about how cheap it was to arm your self with a high point pistol and a knife. Its not fair to compare a high point pistol to another handgun some one has paid 4 to 8 times more for. If Im paying between 5 and 8 hundred dollars for a handgun it better be better than a high point pistol.

Carbines = Excellent firearm for the money.

Handguns = They Work but are very top heavy w/lots of felt recoil.

Given the price point I would buy a CZ-82 or Tokarev.

I would have to agree. I've always heard good things about the carbines but never fired one. I have fired a 9mm pistol. I think one of the 9x18 milsurp pistols is a better choice. Ammo is a different story. All things considered, a $150 handgun that shoots ok isn't a bad choice if you only have $150. However, saving another $75 to $100 and picking up a Star or used Ruger, possibly a used Bersa 9 or a 9X18 and a couple hundred rounds of ammo may be a better choice. I don't think that the Hi Point is a good enough shooter to be a good range gun, Not reliable enough to be a first choice home defense gun, and they're too bulky to be a CCW. Okay, they may be, but not good enough in any category to warrant a purchace. IMO

It is what it is. While a CZ-82 is a better choice, magazines are hard to come by, and not cheap. Ammo is available, but not as available as 9mm Luger.

The only issue I've had is crappy mags.
