I feel like some companies are charging you for their name only (i'm not naming those names). Some are adding extra charge for wear and longevity treatments. Cheaper guns can function just the same, they're just missing the name and the extra expensive treatments that don't affect function. I'd trust my life to a $100 hi point any day of the week if I needed to.
Actually, you are also paying for fit, finish, and features, also. All of these are much nicer on the more expensive guns. I used to have a hi-point until recently. Yup, it worked. It was also heavy, ugly, and rough. Nothing wrong with that for $160. I got rid of it because I do favor the "Nicer" guns. But sure, I'd trust my life to a hi-point.

Okay, just revently started carrying two. Primary pocket gun is a 9mm derringer two shot and secondary, in an ankle holster, is a SA 22lr semi-auto.

In the past I've carried a Ruger LCP, also seperately, a Riger LC9. But I've come to despise DAO triggers and find them worthless to me, defeating the purpose to protect oneself from danger. Only you can determine if the trigger action is a make or break thing for you.

Size is the biggest deal for me, hence the small guns. I would carry nothing larger than a 380 auto myself. Have thought hard about picking up something to replace the LCP, in SA trigger, but haven't made my decision yet. Leaning toward a Tanfoglio, just comparing sizes. The Bersa is fantastic, but too large for my taste. Comfort and concealability are tops!

I just bought a Sig P938 rosewood. SUPER impressed on the way it looks, fit & finish, ect. I hope that holds when I get around to shooting it. As of now, if there is a downside, it's that it comes with only 1 magazine. Really? 1?

Might look at the Stoeger Cougar which is one well made gun for a reasonable price.
