I would buy a hi point for ****s and giggles but nothing serious. I do hear they are very accurate pistols but overall quality is poor. But the life time guarantee is prob due to the fact you will use it.

I've looked into hi-point seriously as an option just couldn't get over the handgun look so went with a Ruger P95. I do plan on buying their 9mm carbine though not that ugly cheap and ammo is interchageable with my pistol

I have just over 1000 rounds through mine. When I feel the need to replace the recoil spring all I need to do is call and one will be shipped for free.

If you don't mind it being a revolver insted of a semi auto, you could get a Nagant Revolver. They run about $99-$125. The ammo can be a little pricy (about $20 per 50), but there are other calibers that will work in it. (.32 H&R Mag, .32 S&W, (the cases would probably be un-reloadable though because they would not fit perfectly (but the bullet does), and you would have to watch out for lead build up in the chamber). If you don't want to do that, you could always get a .32 ACP cylinder and install it (takes some work). You can also reload for the origional ammo using 32-20 brass and a set of lee dies which brings the price down (the brass does not extend to the end of the bullet though, so the chamber does not seal perfectly. It works perfectly fine though).

I still own the phoenix which is reliable and so cheap to shoot.

I gave the hi point to my brother after saving and buying better quality pistols.

The hi point is still working just fine for him.

If you could up your budget to around $200.00 you can get into some better handguns. Tokarev TTC, Makarov, maybe a decent used revolver. Another good choice in the 200 range would be one of the FEG guns, you can find a PA-63 or one of their similar guns. You can get them in .32/.380/9x18.

I really like the Tokarev. It handles like a 1911. With one of these pistols, if you can find a 9mm barrel you can have two guns in one. The magazines will load both cartridges, the change is as quick as a field strip.
