How does the grip help?
Quote:
I bought it about a year ago.... It was brand new.... Maybe 50 round through it...
so..you need some Peanut butter with that jam?

By your description It sound as if you are a new shooter, the malfunctions you are having is most likely operator error not your pistol.

what is it doing or not doing ? do you have a FTE (Failure to eject) or FTF(failure to feed/fire).
as yes you must control the recoil. and to do that you must be in control of the firearm by the use of a secure grip but, not overly tight.
how ever as it as been said don't do anything to the weapon until you have put no less than 500 rds. down range.

Yeah, you have to really have to push against those Hi-Points, or they will jam. But if you can't sort it out, send it back to them. Best warranty service in the industry.

Yea, there seems to be alot of issues with glock pistols. Our local pd hates their issued duty glocks.

Besides both glock and hi point look like milled bricks.

At least everyone waited till the OP got his question answered. Plus no one said the 9mm round sucks & it should have been a .45.

The only problem I've noticed with Glocks, is that they're perfect so there's not much to do to them. =)/=(
