Well my muzzle rises a little with recoil.

Better to aim a little low to be sure.

If I shoot high, it's dead CBM...

Now I know why the company is called Hi Point.

lol...... Never seen one at the indoor range..That would be like taking your cousin (who eats his own buggers) to the prom. We do see them on the outdoor range once in a while.

Shoot mine at 3 indoor ranges all the time. Targets are at 7 yds. Why be ashamed? Both work excellent with no complaints. What's the problem?

Sorry. Wrong targets. Those were .22 from Savage 64F iron sights offhand at 15 yds. Hard to tell on phone. Will post HiPoint 9mm and 45 ACP tomorrow from computer.

Eric from Moss Pawn and Gun. "A Hi Point next to the bed is better than a Glock on lay away. If a Hi point is all you can afford, then you dang well better get one". This after they beat the hell out of a Hi Point C9 for the span of 3 yo utube videos on Iraqveteren8888. I loved my G23. I enjoyed my SCCY CPX-1. I am in love with my M&P Shield and I enjoyed my C9. Good guns is good guns. Cost and taste is what usually creates a sale.

If it's what you can afford then fine. you did the best you could do to protect yourself and family. But, like with most all tools you get what you pay for. If the best tools I could afford come form the dollar store then that's what I'd have. Better than no tools. But even being on a fixed income I plan ahead and I save my money. Because dollar store tools can't fix my vehicle the way I think it would need fixed. When things are cheaper there is a reason. Costs have to be cut someplace. The same reason I have Craftsman tools I have some guns that cost a little more. The life of my family is worth more than what a highpoint costs. I've had a pretty bad with High point pistols and simply will not trust them. And when it comes to something like a gun you have to be able to trust it 100%. If you can your Highpoint then great. No way I can so I wont have one. Like I said bad history.

I think people owe it to their loved ones to use a little forward thinking when looking for something to defend them. A gun is an investment in your safety. How much is that safety worth? For my I'll save my money. That being said I don't own any real high dollar guns either. I've bought smart and looked for deals including buying used.
