Thanx guys for all your feedback. I just asked the question cause with autoloaders the case head support issue can come into play, such as with Glocks. I do not intend to run hot reloads, just factory-pressure type ammo, tho handloaded, thru the gun. BTW, I had no idea Hi-Point was offering their products as far back as 1999 (!), Thanx again, jd45

IMHO it is better than a sharp stick but not heavy enough to be a boat anchor and to heavy the make a good paper weight.

I wouldn't recommend that you stand in front of the muzzle when I squeeze the trigger.

My nieces husband was shooting one in 45 here in my yard and not doing real well so I asked to try it and shot the most perfect 15 yard bullseye you can imagine!
I was not dumb enough to shoot again...lol So I handed it back to him and said "it's you!"..I'm still laughing and he's still shooting....lol

I have not seen any case head failures with hi-points. Have not seen for sure if they are fully supported chambers. I suspect that they are, because of the blow back design and the way the feed ramp is far back from the chamber.

I have had quite a bit of fun with two differen 9s, a 380 and a 45. Decent little shooters as long as you do your part, dont limp-wrist!
Makes an inexpensive truck gun. Im not a fan of the safety, so for cc purposes i wouldnt, and its top heavy, but fits my hand well, points naturally for me. Also other point i dont like is when shooting left-handed, the mag release is designed for righties (i am a righty, but train for both right and left single handed) i have dropped the mag a few times, just on the left draw.

I finally took out to the range my hi point .40 s&w and put 200 rounds of 165 gr Winchester and it ran beautiful . I have the ghost ring sight and it works well for me. I must say I am a firm believer of trust but verify . I own several different types of firearms and for some reason I absolutely love my hi point . I had to buy one to see what all the bad talk about these firearms was all about , and I have nothing but good things to say about it .
