I had a 45. I can honestly say with that gun you get more than you pay for. That was 10 years ago. But for the money you could not have beat it. I sold it later because I needed the money. I would keep it now if I still had it. And I do own guns that were over $800.

I do own a Hi Point .45. A new one (bought NIB about two months ago).
I've already put 300+ rounds through it.
It's a good gun for the money. It's been completely reliable. Fun to shoot.
I wouldn't want to carry it on my hip for even a couple of hours, but it's nice to have for a house or truck gun.
Did I say it's fun to shoot?

I have both a .40 caliber pistol and a 9mm pistol that I gave to my fiancee. As others have said, good guns for the money. Not good CCW guns due to the weight. The 9mm has been pretty reliable. The .40 was not real reliable, but seems to be getting better the more I shoot it and after leaving mags loaded for some time. The .40 is more accurate than the 9mm in my case. I paid $169 for the .40 and $129 for the 9mm. Hope this helps.

I sold a new Hi Point .40 at the last gunshow, the buyer had so much trouble (he said) getting the gun's safety on and the slide hold back function to work, I invited him to bring it to me for a free ship back to Hi Point, on me. When he brought the gun in, all it needed was some lubrication. Funny how some people would rather be shot than just read the instructions.

That would be funny if "dumbass" wasn't so prevalent these days.
It doesn't matter if it's new or used, clean and inspect before firing!
After years of handling weapons and shooting, I'll still ask the other guy to take down and reassemble anything I think I'm going to purchase. Lets make sure it's going to work on your dime. How dirty is the inside? How worn are the internals?
Weapons are not an area to stupid in.
