Hi-points are great and all, but you went off the deep end when you try to compare them to a kimber,lol.

This is a Hi-Point:



This is a Kimber Custom II:



There is NO comparison. The Kimber WILL win every single time. If you would like, I can go into detail as to why I feel this way.

I am a big fan of the Hi-Point line of firearms, but we gotta keep it real here....lol.

If you're looking for a good, inexpensive gun, why don't you look at some CZ 82's and/or CZ 70's? They're older czech surplus guns but they're fine weapons, easily concealable, and fun to shoot. most of the time, you can get them for under $200.
The CZ70 is a .32 and the CZ82 shoots 9x18 makarov rounds.

The CZ82 pistols in my area are slowly going up in price. They are being bought up and the supply is dwindling. If you're interested in getting one, now would be the time.

9x18mm Makarov ammo is still decently priced on-line, so there's no issues there.
