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

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

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.
