Danger is real , Fear is a option

Glock armorer here as well. So simple, reliable and easy to armor. I too use them on duty as well. But, all guns have their haters but hipoint deserves it the most.
I do not agree HiPoint may have haters but not deserves. I just had to try the 9mm at $119. I was so impressed I went back and got the 45 for $139. And after 6 months and only 1 FTF I like them. Yes not as pretty as others I have, but really they may be bigger but not much uglier than any other plastic gun. They are pretty accurate too. They handle p+ ammo that would blow other gun apart. And 3 weeks ago I bought the HiPoint 9mm carbine, but I have not been able to find the time to shoot it yet. I don't think I will be disappointed.
With only only 1 FTF ever why not. However that's not the point, I have very fine 22 pistols but I wouldn't use those for SD either if I could get to something else. Just because it may not be your first choice for SD or CCW does not make it a bad pistol deserving of haters. That's one reason most of us have several lying around.
