Hi-point is good for exactly what it was built for: to provide home protection and concealed carry for those of a lower income bracket that can't afford a Sig, Glock or Springfield. They are not meant to fire 10,000 rounds nor are they a "Legacy Gun" that you can hand down to your children. It's meant for the rare shooter that needs to defend himself, and in that capacity it is adequate.
I must add that it is a great entry gun for the family where the spouse controls the purse strings and any more than $150 will have the other half screaming, "You spent HOW MUCH on a gun?!?!" This gets them introduced to shooting without the high expense to start, and you can always upgrade.
