Trip, no worries man I also would NEVER invest in a Hi Point pistol even for a cheap target shooter.

This gun is obviously a completely different design from their pistols and I have yet to read about issues with the gun itself other than mag feeding issues and too much impact on the top rail could make it loose. This will be a sweet little mini AR in 9mm for mostly target practice and whatever else may arise. I have my Glock 30 on me at all times for the security and reliability

I bought a hi point 45 pistol like 7 years ago. Piece of...Based on that I almost didn't buy the 995. But I have no complaints with the carbine. As a range gun, name ANYTHING comparable in 9mm for 300 bucks. As a personal defense weapon this is obviously the worst choice you could make short of buying a hi pojnt pistol. I have a mossberg 500 for the house and a Ruger security six and kel tec pf9 as my CCW's.

Ditto, Remington 870 and my Glock 30 in 45acp for self and home protection

This will be a sweet new shooter though.

I'm torn between the Glock 30 and Glock 19 myself. Next pistol I pick up will definitely be a Glock.

Depends on your comfort level with round capacity, recoil with 9mm versus 45 etc. Otherwise its virtually the exact same gun. The G30 is slightly thicker but not much.

I am thinking of going with the G30. I love the way a .45 feels. Plus I already have several 9mm. I know I will end up with both the G30 and the G19, just gotta decide which I get first.

My service pistol is a Glock 22 in .40. The .40 allows you to carry more rounds like the 9mm and still have 92% of the stopping power of a .45. I carry 15 in a mag plus 1 in the chamber. Cant go wrong with that.

I've never really looked into the .40's just because I never owned one. Maybe that is my excuse to get the G22... I have fired many .45s and 9mms but never a .40

Lots of people can't figure out how to file a magazine down. Other than not shooting the gun enough to break it in, the magazine making contact with the slide is the trouble with a Hi Point a vast majority of the time.

I have had great luck with Hi Point pistols and carbines. I have bought several over the years and enjoyed everyone of them. I got all of them but one carbine for $50 or less. I have never had a Hi Point to give me any more grief than any other gun I own. Plus they have a lifetime warranty.

Aint it funny how the Glock fanboys are swooping in to hijack the thread. They must be jealous of the stylish slide on the Hi Point. I notice the Gen 4 Glocks have a slide just like a Hi Point 9mm.
