Yes, I have held one, I almost bought one instead of this Uzi. The HiPoint is an amazing deal for the money, nothing against it. Didn't mean to imply that it is a Glock but in appearance, to me, it seems plasticky, due to the all plastic furniture. I like the HiPoint, rugged, American made, inexpensive and reliable. I may still get one at some point. The only thing I didn't care for was the trigger, it is pretty bad. But FWIW, the trigger on my Vector Uzi was just as bad, but I sent it off to Bill Springfield, the trigger guy in Colorado and he improved it immensely.
