Urban, i have seen more problems from firearms for lack of proper cleaning and maintenance than anything else over the years. i have bought some really good guns because of it and turned a profit on them when i wanted something else. that and poor ammo will cause many problems.

like i said, even if the gun was truly at fault, it could be sent in and repaired under warranty for free.

Hi points imo are absolute garbage, they're ugly to start off with and feel even worse in your hands. There's no need to waste the money on one when you could get a s&w sigma, ruger Sr40 or a kahr for double to triple the price but you will be getting a gun that will always be reliable, much better engineered and you will get the quality cs with it if ever needed.

I realize your new here, and most likely to firearms, but sometimes ( especially here) its better to listen and learn instead of just spouting, when you have logical reasoning being put to you.

i'm not mad. i don't even own one! and if you bothered to read, you would have known that. i simply stated that i have seen them in action personally and have read way more positive reviews than negative from people who have bought them. i also stated that it would not be my first choice in buying a pistol, but if at the right time and price, yes i might purchase one. so it seems to me all you are trying to do is make rash statements without any facts or concrete details and inflame other peoples thoughts about something you have no personal experiance with. IMO, you're an idiot who doesn't have a clue as to what he's talking about. have a nice day!

i own a large variety of guns including a hipoint i buy and trade guns of all price ranges as most gun enthusiastes do,so to say go buy a smith or ruger is not good advice considering that most gun owners new and old tend to own all diffrent makes and models.

So what research did you do, talk to people that actually owe one and not believe them

+1 to that. You have more people here saying they enjoy Hi-point compared to the nay sayers.

But I guess since we aren't "experts", our opinion doesn't matter.

Personally I'd say I am more of an expert on a hi-point compared the those that do not own one.
