I have A HI-POINT C9 9MM had it for over a year brought it used and it never gave me any problems I wouldn't use it as a carry peace but it's a good shooter by the way those picture's are a bunch of BULL**** .

for a carry gun, you want something relatively small, light and dependable. A lot of folks claim that the Hi-Point is dependable, but no one will ever claim that it is small or light. Carrying one would be like carrying around a brick. It might be an OK house gun, or something to keep in your truck, but it is not a carry gun. You'd be way better off with a Kel-Tec 3AT or Ruger LCP in 380 caliber. These guns are reasonably priced, are truly small and lightweight, and the 380 round isn't that bad (Although it's pretty expensive to buy right now). The 380 round is basically a 9mm short. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. PS - I had the Kel-Tec and let a friend shoot it. He was so impressed that he talked me into selling it to him. I now have the Ruger, and like it even better.

Buy a Hipoint, drive a Ford EXP, and drink

NO, alot of us have shot the damned garbage things.

if you dont have money enough to buy a real gun, HiPoint will do.

HEY NOW, I drove an EXP in High School, until it caught Fire and burned in the parking lot.

Well said Sarge - I would take this and run with it.

Never having shot a Hi-point, I can not first-hand attest to it's accuracy but I've held them and wasn't impressed. Enough trash talk on that note.
I've legally carried for years and I currently carry a Kahr K9 steel frame that disappears IWB (I'm a skinny bugger).

The Makarov is a nice weapon for the price.



My father carries a Rossi .38 special in his truck that is solid (went to college with me years ago... ssshhhh....)




The Tokerov is another option - 7.26x25 is a hotter load but if you get bad guys to line up single file then you can save on ammo...






In your price range you may want to save a little. It is hard when you have the option of something inexpensive but it is to be carried, you need to factor in more than the price of ammunition.

My 2cents.

The most interesting thing about this $150 weapon is the interest in it. Bad or good what other gun generates 2831 thread views on this forum.

Default Best gun for your money

Best gun for your money, best warranty.
It's an excellent plinker, its a good home defense weapon, goes boom every time.
It's a little crude, is based on a Chinese pistol model, crude but efficient.

Now, any of you guys buy guns to show them off to other guys, get something else.

Now don't get me wrong, there are more sophisticated, better built pistols out here, and even I got some cuties, my c-9 never disappoints.
Plus this ghost ring is really cool:
