Here's good honest info right here:

The Hi-Point is big, bulky and ugly.

However, at $125 it is reliable, surprisingly fun to shoot and darn near indestructible.

If you do have to return it to the factory, you'll get top notch service and support. Try sending a Makarov back to the factory...

Ignore the naysayers.

It's not that I'm in love with hi-point arms. The members that ask about hi point are usually looking for an entry level pistol. OP had 11 post on the forum. How would he know that you are tired of the post about hi point. It was an honest question and several people gave their opinions. Sounds like a thread to me.

Sorry to have offended you so much hossfly.

I just wanted to know if investing in a hi-point was worth the risk from all the tesearch I've already done. I've really appreciated all I've learned from this forum until now.

I dont think u can go wrong with one. A few of my friends have them and they love them. My favorite of the ones i have shot is the 9mm carbine if i ever came across one at a good price i would grab it up

i bought a C9 for sh*ts & giggles & because the price was right earlier this year. i started a thread on it which took off like wildfire, lots of info & opinions in there if you wanna search for it

that said, at the time i had minimal issues with it but i've got a minor update on mine. the first 400 rounds or so it was fine but it doesn't seem to like the cold weather, i'm talkin like 10 above zero or so. the other day after about 50 rounds in the cold i had a couple ftf's & fte's. maybe the oil i used on it was too thick for the cold & that combined with the fouling caused issues??? i'll hafta give it a good cleaning & try again another day.

Most people Ive met that never owned one thought it was a piece ah **** not worth 10 bucks and most of the folks ive met that did own on thought it was an excellent affordable gun ... i just saw a youtube video today with a c9 that had over 2000+ rds through it and still chuggin. imho get it

If I were looking for an entry level handgun in that price range, I'd more than likely look for a deal on a used kel tec or eaa. Contrary to what I hear a lot on this site, I've never had any luck at all with any of the the hi point pistols that I've shot. I've personally owned two, and they were eerily accurate but utterly unreliable. I do hear good things about their carbines, but have no personal experience shooting them.
