200 for a Hi-Point? Seriously? They have the .45 for 161, plus shipping. I bought two of them from the local gun shop (.40), so I could teach my sons how to shoot on a very basic gun.
They are nuts over them, and love the weight. As my youngest said, if he runs out of ammo, he can beat them to death with it!
But I paid 150 each for them. New.

I like the part that they are all American made and are really inexpensive, well the cheap part kinda scares me a little. I would be afraid it would blow up in my hand. God bless them for turning out a product everyone can afford so more people can protect themselves and their families. I just cant get over how UGLY they are. I carry either a colt, kimber or sig because they go boom everytime, sounds like the hipoint does too, but also because they are nice to look at and customize. Heck I will buy one for $150 but they need to make them easier on the eyes first.

Last month, I bought a slightly used Hi-Point C9 and 175 rounds of Winchester 115 gr FMJ from a customer who wasn't happy with the pistol. He'd fired 25 rounds and had three jams {stovepipes}. So. I took it {and the ammunition} off his hands for a mere $100.

Since I have read on the Hi-Point website that one should fire at least 200 rounds through the weapon to break it in, I purchased several boxes of Monarch 115 gr FMJ's and took it to my back yard and put her through the paces.

575 rounds later {400 Monarch/175 Winchester} I had a pretty good pistol. The sights are preset to about 15 yards and hit where I point it. The recoil isn't excessive {compared to say, a Kahr} and the operation of the pistol is very smooth. Both magazines functioned as advertised. The only problem I had was the Winchester ammo continued to stovepipe, about once every 2nd or 3rd magazine (5 rounds loaded). Could not figure out what that particular problem was...

I am pretty impressed with the pistol myself and feel satisfied with my purchase. True, it belongs to the Lee sisters {Ug, Ghast and Home}, but, it functions well with cheap ammo. It's now my truck gun. I am planning to buy one of the newer Hi-Point carbines {9mm} to go with it.

I've seen some pretty prop guns, doesn't mean I would buy one. I'll take a functional arm over a good looking one any day.

Not saying those guns aren't functional by any means. But comparing the highpoint to a Kimber or the like is wrong. It's like comparing a Rebel to a Road King. ( motorcycles, for those who care). It would be unfair to HP to have to live up to that standard. At least no without quadrupling their price and defeating the purpose.

From my personal experience, the best ammo to feed through this pistol is Blazer brass. I have yet to have a FTF/FTE.

As for Winchester, ive had tons of problems in .45acp and in 9mm. Missfires and FTF atleast 1/15.

Kimber goes boom everytime? Not from what I've been reading.
