Here's a good site for info on star firearms, the direct link specifically for the Model B line...

I had a BKS "Starlite" many years ago. A great little weapon. The only complaint was that it wouldn't feed anything except hardball. Of course, back then most autos would only feed hardball unless modded by a smith. Including the 1911

I shot a Star PD 45 till I went with Glock 20 years ago. Loved that gun. No longer made, but a few on www.gunbroker.com.

You need at least a 357 mag with a 6" or longer barrel for hunting deer. Almost anything will get a coyote. There is nothing wrong with a Hi Point. The Hi Point is not a gun you will just throw away when you get a better gun. They are accurate and function well. Hi Points make great truck or nightstand guns. I keep one in my barn.
