The Northwest, Oregon to be specific. But I'm also from a small town in Oregon, population sub 25k.

My experience has been that 44mag is easiest to find. Then 32s&w and 40s&w. It's not always available, but findable nonetheless.

In Oklahoma it has been easier to find .40 and .45 for most of the crunch than it has been to find 9mm. This has only changed in the past few weeks where I am seeing more 9mm.

What would be your plan for this gun? Is it for home defense? carry gun? range gun? just a get to know guns gun?

My sister has a hi point in 9mm. It has had a few feed problems but not too bad. The only thing I will say is don't drop the gun because it seems that the sights break off rather easy.

I wouldnt hesitate or have any misgivings buying a highpoint. Its damn near impossible to kaboom one. If it doesnt work right they fix it for free. Their cs is superb.

Since your not going to ccw one very well regardless i would get the 45acp version. Its got enough weight that it tames everything down because they are heeeeeeeavy guns.

Its true that on occasion some dont work right but everyone who has actually sent one back has nothing but good to say when their gun returned to them.

My buddy has a .45, treats it like the neighbors dog, sent it in with a busted ejector and they sent it back with two free mags.
