I like a good deal as much as the next person, but when I buy a gun, ONE of the critical points for me is looks. Hi Points are just fugly. If all you have is $150 to spend on a gun, they are better than nothing, but for another $100 or so, you can buy a decent used revolver or other semi autos. If Illinois ever gets CC, I would consider a Hi Point to keep in my boat.
I had to get rid of mine, after two trips back to the manufacturer it still jammed itself like toast with arms. The same guy I bought it from bought it back for $100 which is a deal I couldn't turn down.

ive had a few hi points there not a good personal carry but they are great for home defense, mainly cause there cheap so you can have several and stash em though out the house.
im going to pick up a few more because i have a few spots that need something and its easier putting out $100 for a stash gun then $300+
yea there not pretty and not the greatest but they do they were made for
I just got a new high point cf 9mm and it only weighs 29oz fully loaded and is small enough for carry. Most ccw guns weigh that much. Ohh and I love the option of the peep sight. Makes for much faster target shooting.
I own a hipoint for plinking at the range, it stays loaded at home also. but as far as me grabbing that when I carry its a no go for me. Carry what you want and trust your life on it. To the same effect I dont buy cheep brakes or tires for my vehicle either. Yes the cheep ones get the job done but I am not trusting my life or my wifes life on them.
