It would be decent for home defense as you would not be the least bit concerned about bludgeoning the BG with it if it came down to it. Imagine the shame in prison when they found out he was pistol whipped with a hi-point.
Nice looking is a comparitive thing. It is a nice looking HiPoint and Miller claims it shoots as good as in the same class. I believe your HD firearm is the same one you carry everyday. If you don't carry then you should take the measures required to do that then you will understand a HD firearm should fit your need daily, not for the unexpected possibility.
MHO, a gun in the drawer doesn't provide safety. A quality firearm, training and practice, practice and more practice provides that. Anything else may as well be baseball bat or a solid escape plan.
