I traded it about a year ago for my 870 express magnum.

Well times are not hard for me, I make damn good money and have bought several guns. And after I saw the hi point 9mm I just had to try it. I figured that if I didn't like it what the heck I put more than that in a slot machine in 15 minutes sometimes. I was so impressed I got the 45 later. Yes I own more expensive and prettier but can't really say much better functioning or much better warranty. I have had zero issues with the guns does it get better than that. Oh yeah I also got the carbine too after the 45.

Great door stop or boat anchor. I have the .45 and it shoots good, but your arm sure gets tired quickly. To heavy to carry, to ugly to leave out on display. want fit in the glove box. I bought it out of curiosity.

I don't think I can actually say what I prefer, or maybe I should say I prefer variety.
