Well- If you SERIOUSLY want my opinion if thats what you can afford right now BUY ONE----Its BY FAR the best of the "economical" handguns out there & i've heard many times they have a great warranty--Thats goes a ways with me

If you really want a revolver,maybe you could bear down a little harder on gun shops,pawn shops,the inter net,newspaper ads etc.It seems that a lot of pretty good old S&W,Taurus,Rossi and Charter Arms revolvers are turning up at very fair prices as trade ins for the hottest new auto loaders.

(If you buy used,by all means read the excellent "buying a used revolver" sticky at the head of the revolver threads.Read it and believe it!!)

With HIPoint you get heavy,clumsy looking , butt ugly-Versus-dead bang reliable,inexpensive,top price point for value and the best" No Questions Asked Lifetime of the Gun" warranty in the business;can.t miss.

If you're still unsure check out You Tube for "The Ultimate Handgun Torture Test";you won't believe what these guys do to a HiPoint over four videos to try and destroy it.

Something to consider. If you are involved in a shooting, the police will more than likely take the gun for evidence. Now would you rather they take a $200 Hipoint or your Colt 1911 which you may not get back? The 45's seem to be reliable and would make a good night stand, truck, boat etc gun. Just as long as you dont have to carry it. I would like to find one of their .45 carbines for $$250-$300 but have not seen any.
I have recently seen Ruger Security Six revolvers in the $300 - $400 range. Also saw some very good prices on 629's. Everyone wants semi autos.

The thing with Hi-Point is, I want to see

what they come up with next.

Perhaps a bolt action...

I don't have any personal experience with one. They are dang ugly, but I've never heard any criticisms of them that would make me recommend not buying one.

They just take a few seconds to switch out, and always work perfectly.
Wait, so there are 30rnd mags available for the hi point carbines?
