since the gun was cheap, you might as well spend an extra buck or 2 on better ammo

mine didnt like the steel cased stuff much, but for an extra dollar or 2 around here, i can get winchester white box & federal premium 115 gr. i think the last time i bought ammo, a 100 round box of winchester white's was $21

Work your mags when you get them. Keep them fully loaded and let them sit a few days.

My c9 didn't care fir Tulane steel case. Eats everything else.

Sometimes the feed lips in the mags are either to tight it too loose. On the highpoint forum they have it posted what they should be if you have calipers.

It's absolutely +p rated as well.

Just closed the deal on a practically new C9. I will take possession next Thursday. Great price with holster & ammo.

That because the shooters in the Hi Point Forum take pride in their guns and spend the effort to make their guns fully functional. There is a support group mentality to help new Hi Point owners in problem solving.

Yeah, it's called spend a little extra money and buy something worthwhile.

Ive never done any such thing. I never had to do anything to my hi-point except, oil it and keep loading.

If all of you "haters" of the hi-point dislike it so much, why come into a hi-point thread and bash it? Why not scroll over to the next thread?

The man came in asking about ammo, not your opinion on his choice of firearm. If that is all he can afford at the moment, then you should (at the least) be welcoming him into the world of firearms, not telling him to save money for something better.

Do you think a BG is going to wait to break into his home until he buys a better gun?

My 40 shot well with HP and fmj, I sanded the feed lips on the mag a little and it worked great.
The sharp edges were grabbing the rounds making it hard to feed the new mag.
