I just commented on the other active hipoint thread but ill repeat....I had a hipoint .40, it was my first pistol and bought it for plinking, it was an impulse buy really. I wanted a pistol but at the time couldn't afford much else, making 11 bucks an hour at a crappy construction job.
I agree the mags are pretty silly looking but my mags worked good, I had two. The only issue I had with it was it wouldn't chamber hollow points, with ball ammo it was good.
I ended up trading it for my 870 express magnum about a year ago.
