I have never had any dealings with the carbine. But, I know, from first hand experience, that a lot of police officers lives have been saved due Hi-Point pistols and how they love to jam and or stove pipe. A few weeks into my FTO training, my FTO and I were driving through the hood when someone fired 2 shots at us. We exited the vehicle and gave chase. As we were chasing him, we heard a loud clunk behind a yard. We slowed down and sliced the pie. We found the gun tossed into a bed of a truck. The gun had a double feed. K9 later dog bit the guy and he confessed, I found out a few weeks later, that shooting at the police was a gang initiation. He probably would have had better luck throwing the gun at us! lol. It was a .45. I have came into contact with Hi-Point several times in the past 5 years. Criminals love them, because they are so cheep and easy to get their hands on. I know, for a fact, that I would never own a Hi-Point pistol to carry or for home/personal protection!! I would never recommend one to a friend or family. This is just my experience with Hi-Point. I hope you all have good luck with yours and enjoy them!! Sorry if I sounded like Debby Downer! hahaha
Keep Calm and Carry On.
