When I thought about getting back into shooting I shot a friends C-9 and thought not bad. Found a slightly used one for $100 like yourself and thought if it sucks I'm only out $100. I have better made and much more expensive pistols now but still get a grin when I go shooting it with my younger brother who now owns it. For years it has been totally reliable and probably one of the best $100 investments I have ever made. It's made it through 3 owners with out a hiccup.

I had no intentions of buying a Hi Point but a friend said he had one for sale and I just happened to have the cash on hand. 120 dollars for a 45 ACP one with both clips filled with hollow point ammo. It is accurate and reliable. Yea a bit top heavy but if you ever shot a target gun with a barrel weight on it, it feels similar. I do not regret it.

Yea I know I said clips should have said magazines but I am old or getting there LOL and when I was young folks wrongly called them clips and the habit stuck with me.

I too have one. Bought it for a $100 new .40 cal years ago. Shot the **** out it, never a problem, other than butt ugly!
I really like the manual, , , says something like clean it after 5 million rounds, and if anything ever breaks send it back for fix'in, free, 1st, or 40th, owner.

Heard conflicting reports about Hi Points.
Would be interested in how it works out for you.
Good luck!

Oh everybody claims they are total crap guns, because they're cheap, ugly and leave a lot to be desired in the ergonomics and balance department. Interestingly I've never heard an owner complain about one.

Nope most that have them like them. Most folks that bash them never owned them or shot one. Henry Repeating Arms Products went through the same issue a few years ago. Because the side plates are a alloy and some of the parts were plastic they got bashed by the arm chair commandos on the internet while they were stroking fondly their Ruger 10/22s with alloy receiver and plastic parts. Henry makes good dependable guns so does Hi Point.

I've had one of each caliber with no problems. I still have the 9mm. I only sold the others fir money to buy more guns. I bought a 995TS carbine about a month ago in 9mm. It shoots every time, no recoil no problems. It's a great little carbine for home defense. The only problem that Hi-Points ever have is an occasional magazine problem and they are easily adjusted for no more problems. You will love your new pistol.
