Hell for 225 you can get a bersa .380, much easier to conceal than a hipoint

I have had a hi point 9mm carbine for 4 years. I trust it so much it is my only gun that is not locked up on a daily basis. No problems what so ever. Good luck.

Tell you what riverg420, come thru my door uninvited and I promise you will not be concerned about it being a hi point as you expire.

I really should not have posted that. Not because of the content, rather responding to someone with 420 in their username. Thanks for profiling yourself.

I apologize for the misunderstanding. I am using the app on my phone to read this and it showed as "auto & semi auto discussion".

Not at all. I just don't think your post was very well thought out. So go back to mommas' basement and fire up your bong. I' ll check back later on for another 5 or 6 word response from you. Don't hurt yourself with a paragragh of rebuttle.

I have a 9mm carbine(new style) AND a Hi-Point 40 S&W pistol. I keep the Carbine beside the bed, with lazer light, tactical flashlight and Red Dot scope mounted. For the 40, I use it as a sidearm weapon on the Farm each time I go out. I would trust my life with both of them. They may not of cost $400 to $800, but they work reliably and have always gone bang each time I pulled the trigger. For the Carbine I use American Eagle ammo through it, as it does the best for me, but other people have used other ammos, but they've had problems with steel cased ammo, only use brass.

Hi-point carbine cons:
Heavy
Bulky
Small magazine capacity
Not the best looking gun you have ever seen.

Pros:
Inexpensive
Shoots any ammo you put in it (even russian steel case)
Easy on recoil
Great iron sights
WILL FIRE EVERY TIME YOU PULL THE TRIGGER
Shoots while dirty
Extremely reliable

I would have ever thought I would own a hi-point of any kind. I am a AR guy. I bought this carbide for my wife (paid $225) I think this riffle has grow on be and I have to admit it is a fun little gun to shoot. We were hitting milk jugs at 150 yards.
