I bought a 9mm several years ago at a gun show. You get what you pay for. I don't trust it enough to carry. It's an ok plinker.

Ya i seen on you tube torture test that its heavy accurate ugly gun but many videos on the gun by owners show they like em. There a video on converting 1911 mags to fit as well. I like the concept of 100% america made as well. Thks guys for sharing

my only real beef with em is the weight and size. they function great and warranty stated previously is outstanding. the only hipoint i have ever seen malfunction was last year temperature was around 3 above zero and the guy that bought it did not clean the packing grease out of it and it wouldnt cycle.

im all for cheap reliable guns as the more guns in the hands of honest folk the less crime there is. you wont see my knocking hi-point just cuz they are cheap.

I will never knock hi point either. A friend got his hands in one when we were teens, and we tried to break it. We did manage to break the safety, hi point customer service had a new one at his door 2 days later. Now, 10 years later, the only cleaning it's had is a squirt with the water hose, and it still runs like a top. Still reasonably accurate too.

I saw my first one a while back. A new .45 & it is definitely almost the ugliest pistol I've ever seen! I say "almost" 'cause it'd be hard to say if it or a g***k is uglier. (just kidding)

Definitely too heavy & bulky for carry. But, maybe a good truck tool box gun that you didn't mind getting scratched up. If I do get one, will probably be a 9mm for cheap range fun.

They seem to solid firearms. My buddy has a 9mm carbine that is a blast to shoot we have run who knows how many rounds through over the years and it keeps tickin

Pretty much a good scrubbing,cleaning and oiling... then just load it up and shoot it. Simple.

This is important! ! Even before you open the box, start cussing it. Tell it how cheap it is and thats the way your going to treat it. Like the cheap dirty. @@__~+ it is. Start the relationship out real, keep it real. If you do this, one of two things will happen. Your ffl dealer will laugh his butt off and give you the gun. Or he will clear the shop and you may not be able to buy a gun for awhile. Glad to be of help. Let us know how that works for you. Seriously, good guns, I think you'll be real happy with it. The above was for all those who look down on an affordable American made pistol. It was what they have been wanting to say but have said everything else.
