i really been thinking of getting one as a carry pistol but it using zamak kinda scares me. have you ever heard any real reports of it blowing up in someones hand? or it cracking or breaking?
i really want a keltec p11 but theyre pretty expensive where i live almost $200 more than the hp c9 so thats why i'm considering the high point. i'm worried i'm gonna get it and regret it.

The chances of a Hi-Point blowing up in your face is pretty much the same as any other sidearm on the market. There are about 4 different areas where the slide would have to critically fail in order for it to come off the weapon during operation.

I'm sitting at almost 1000 rounds through my C9. I haven't had any issues. The weapon is +P rated, so whatever factory rounds you buy for SD should be no issue.

This weapon is excellent for the money, in my opinion. The only thing you'll have to prepare yourself for is the experience of owning such a "bashed" weapon. Usually, people say things like this when they see or hear about a Hi-Point:

"Hi-Points suck!"

"Hi-Points are crap. They always jam on you."

"A Hi-Point will blow up in your face after awhile."

"Only stupid people get these Hi-Points."

"Hi-Point slides will come off and hit you." <---- I love that one...lol.

Remember to check out one yourself. Take the time to ask the questions (no such thing as a dumb question). If the salesman gives you answers that are like the quotes above, come back to this forum and ask me. I will do my best to keep you informed the correct way.

I am going to be taking my Hi-Point to the range today, and I'll make another video of me shooting it. Since I have an actual video camcorder, I should be able to make something showing the hits on target at 15 yards and such.

The biggest selling point is this:

If you don't want a 9x19mm pistol, Hi-Point also offers a .40 S&W model (10 + 1 capacity) and a .45 ACP model (9 + 1 capacity). Each one averages retail right under 200 dollars. You CANNOT beat that! Getting a working centerfire pistol in a popular SD chambering for a super cheap price is almost unheard of in this day and age. That is one of the reason they are so disliked.

You have no idea how many people I can piss off at the range by shooting well with my meek Hi-Point C9.

P.S. The weapon breaks for whatever reason. You send it in to Hi-Point and it is repaired/replaced. No questions asked. For the lifetime of the weapon. Regardless of whether or not you are the original owner. THAT, my friend, is a good warranty.

That's one of the reasons I like them. They are ugly, and inexpensive so I don't mind if it gets dinged/scratched or whatnot.

It's not the $40k truck you park in the back of the lot so it does not get dinged. It's the $500.00 beater that starts and runs everytime. Gets you where you want to go and you leave the keys in it because you know people don't know what you know.

Would be bulky to carry, tho. Unless you wear very baggy shirts and a tight belt.
