    You do have a valid point.

    Name, proven reliability, comfort, fit, purpose and resale/trade often are key factors that determine one's decision when obtaining a handgun.

    But mainly one stays away from Hi-Points to avoid this......

    One could hunt down a perfectly seviceable AMC Pacer as well. Why spend tens of thousands on a newer car or truck?

    Isn't the Pacer a notorious lemon?

    There's a bit of a difference there, all my experiences with Hi Points have been great, and many owners say the same thing. Really, I think I hear fewer complaints about Hi Points (I'm not counting aesthetics, but quality and performance) than the complaints I hear about Kimber.

    I did specify "Perfectly serviceable."
    I'm not expert on Pacers, but aside from being ridiculous, I thought they were no worse than any other domestic offering from that era.

    Yes you did. Sorry about that. And yes they are pretty ridiculous.

    Hey did you know the makers of Yugo made a bigger version? They called it the "Wego".

    All jokes aside everybody can own which brand they choose as it's a free country but comparing a hi- point to a kimber is, well there is no comparison!

    The original options were "hi point or sigma." As to my hi point and kimber comparison, I wasn't comparing the two, I was stating that I hear more kimber owners bitching about their guns than I do hi point owners. I would feel perfectly comfortable any day of the week doing a side by side between sigma and hi point.

    I recently bought a HP 380 just to see what all the fuss was about. For $140, I'm impressed. Shoots nice, functions well. It IS heavy, and slightly ugly, but so what? I have a Beretta 96, if I needed to impress someone. (I don't)

    I would never buy a HP, when I can get a CZ-82 shipped to me for less than $200.00
    Also...9X18 is cheaper than 380.

    Oh yeah, there's better, or at least nicer, options out there than the hi point. I just pointed out that between the two options, I'd pick the hi point.
