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.

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 like my guns and women to be of higher level in looks and performance.

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.
