Why was this posted here? I didn't think Hi-Points were Springfields.

Different guns and different shooters man. I can hold a 3 inch group with my SW 65 at 21 feet, and a 2 inch group with my mom's M&P 40 at the same distance. My mom can hold a 1 inch group with mine and a 4 inch with hers at that distance. Just one if those things. I've tried to talk her into trading, but she won't hear of it.

different gun, same shooter I personally find 6" at 21' to be a bit broad.

i don't know the history of this firearm, but know he takes care of everything he owns, nor do I know if the age of the ammo had an impact, which is why I want to run my CCI Tac through it. And it wasn't like everything was off to one area like my XDM9 likes to do (user error), it was literally complete circle.

It very well could just be the best that gun can do. It happens. There have been cases where an experienced marksman can't get the same group with 2 different guns of the exact same model and age. For it to not even hit POA by chance is a bit odd though. How well does your dad shot with it? About the same?

Much worse, but he hasn't shot in a very long time, he was having trouble with his glasses, and his hand shaking was helping. That's the primary reason why I shot it, he was having trouble staying on the 15x15 target, and since I had just did that small grouping figured it was just him...

I would shoot it from a rest of some sort and see what happens. But, that kind of group out of a gun that cheap? I'd be bugged and be wanting to get that straightened out, by taking advantage of that warranty. They may just swap the barrel and test fire it, and I don't know what their factory standards are for accuracy.
