Default hi-point hand guns

Hey, theres a lot of people that will tell you not to buy them. I personally own a 9mm and .45 hi point and there actually really nice for the price. Ive had two jams with the 9mm out of around 300 rounds, and none with the .45 so far. So yeah, id get one if i were you there nice shooters.

Well i think the mag spring could be the problem, its when you have a full mag and you try to load the first round (with hollow points) it gets hung up but other than that they feed well.

Grim, hi-point firearms are good for plinking and target practice. I have one in .40 S&W and it shoots very good for what I paid for it. It was the first handgun I bought and I originally bought it to learn how to shoot a pistol, after I got the hang of it I actually carried the damn thing. They (the .40 and .45 cal models) are quite large and unwieldly so carrying one is like carrying a Desert Eagle. They are very hard to conceal and very uncomfortable to wear.

But like I said, for a $200 handgun, they do shoot pretty good.

Also, my Hi-point will not chamber hollow points. It will fire them but they have to be manually loaded, one at a time.

If shtf and its the only thing you have then yes use it. But i dont consider them shtf type of guns. And they should last a very long time with proper maintenance and cleaning. Ive heard field stripping is not so fun on Hi-Points, ive yet to strip mine

You won't need to worry about anyone stealing it.

Sorry, I'd rather carry a rock, or the NY Times.

If you decide to buy one, make sure you also purchase a small hammer and a small brass punch. You'll will need both in order to field strip the sidearm.

I would recommend getting the .45 ACP Hi-Point. Might as well get something that has some punch to it.

I would also recommend that you purchase a Hogue brand universal slip-on grip. That will help with the fit of the sidearm in your hands.
