I agree with some of your post. You do get what you pay for. A cheap price doesn't mean poor quality. Hi points are cheaper than most guns yes but that in it self doesn't make them bad guns. From what research I have done they had a poor mag design. That has been fixed and can be upgraded pretty easy.
I remember glock coming out years ago and people bashing them for being plastic. And now they are one of the top pistols. Same for m16, when it was released how much bad press did they get? Was it justified, I think so. But it was bad ammo not the fire arm.
I am willing to take a chance with hi point being in the top in a few years
