the "Hi Point vs. anything else" debate is just as futile as the "Glock vs. 1911" debate: no matter where you stand, you're not going to convince the other side to see it your way. You either get it or you don't.

If all I could afford was a Hi Point or I was a very casual shooter, i'd gladly take another C9 to defend my castle. For the money, there is no better option IMO.

High end semi-autos are like high end sports cars, beautiful, exotic, expensive, entertaining.....Hi Points are like mid 60's muscle cars, heavy, blocky, crude, loud, but oh so fun.

I think he probably owns one and was using exaggeration to make a point, being defensive due to the attack on something he's passionate about.

We all do it, been on both sides of the coin. I just don't think it's a big deal.

I think he has every right and reason to believe it true, if all evidence he's seen shows his gun to be as reliable as one could want.

I think he would be absolutely stupid not to employ something proven to function as designed for the purpose of protecting he and his family. So I think he was 100% correct.

I've owned two C9's and neither failed on me. In reality, I purchased neither, they where given to me as payment for money owed to me. I was able to sell both and recover my money due. I do admit that I put very few rounds thru them but I had no hiccups. If they are all you can afford, then why not. Better than having to defend yourself with a sling shot.

We have had one in .40 cal in the house for a couple months now. It is my father in laws gun so I have no say in the maintenance. We have put over 700 rds through it without cleaning only oiling(once again not my choice) and we have had only 2 jams and that was right out of the box. Before he got it I would not have touched one with a ten foot pole. Would I choose one has a carry pistol? No probably not but only because of the weight and ****ty balance. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a cheap HD pistol that will go bang every time you pull the trigger.

i've owned hi points and all shot good, but around here the c9 are close to $200 and 40-45 are slightly more now as their prices increased recently. for just about $50-$75 more than that i can get a eaa windicator in 357 magnum or for about the same price as a c9 i can get a armscor m200 38 special with 4inch barrel.

We all get that way sometimes but ya i was attacked verbally because I said they are junk IMO and after he said it was his top choice weapon. I just don't know. It's like saying I choose McDonald's over a steak house. I just don't get people sometimes

It could be worse. It could be the 10,000th thread about the supremacy of all things Glock.

Sometimes I think that's just the way guns are, I felt the same way about Glock, the first time I picked one up I knew I would never own one. I've shot a Hi-Point, it worked in that it went bang when I pulled the trigger. But I think they're ugly and I don't think I could ever carry one...

Hey now, there is no need to hate on my Yota, I know plenty of people who are proud of their Toyota trucks.
