high point guns
one of the guys at work was talking highly about these guns. i have never even heard of them and don't trust a gun that is only 200 dollars for a .45 caliber. does any one on here have any experience or knowledge about these guns. thanks for the replies.

I have a C9 9mm. never jammed works great. Took my carry class with mine and the instructor saw it and said good luck with that. I shot a perfect score better than some who were shooting the clubs competition pistols. I bought it for $139 brand new at a gun show. I have to recomend it.

A Hi-Point is a good pistol for the money, I wouldn't pay $200 for one. You can get the NIB for less than $150. Not going to use it as a carry weapon, but to keep in the truck or just go to the range to fire of some rounds, nothing wrong at all.

I'd take it over a Glock.:eek::D

I was looking for something that was reliable,cheaper than my hk, held more rounds than my hk, and that I could leave in my jeep so that if I was stolen I wouldn't be out much.

hi-point is the best way to go. I bought one so did my brother and my nephew. At a show 380 and 9 go for about $140 and about $160 for 40 and 45 they are on the same frame. heres their web site.

I have the .45, basically because it is .45 ACP. I have said this many times here and I will say it again. I would never carry it because it is too big, heavy and bulky. I don't have it as my #1 or #2 home defense gun, but if I had to go to it, I would. For no more than they cost, they are functional and they hit the target. They have a lifetime guarantee and very good customer service (from what I hear as I have never had to use their CS).

The company is still in business even with their transferrable lifetime guarantee and they sell a ton and a half firearms every year. I believe they may have had 2 models of handguns that made the top 10 most sold by Buds Guns last year.

Oh, and they are made in Ohio by Ohioans.

Carry piece, no. Truck, tackle box or tool box gun, yes. Personally, with the very little difference in price, the 9mm or .45 is the way to go, should you decide to buy one.

Oh, and I would buy one before a Glock as well.

Ugly as sin, but they are cheap and go boom when you pull the trigger. Friend of mine has a .45 that he's never had a problem with.

Aren't they with a barrel fixed to frame and rely on the weight of the slide to not release until pressure has dropped?
