    I bought a 45 and a 9. They aren't bad guns but it didn't take me long to upgrade. Good starter pistol. They will throw a bullet at something but I wouldn't bet my life on one.

    All else fails they are heavy enough to be a boat anchor

    As far as shooting they are very reliable and accurate. They are heavy and bulky though, and balance is not great. But they have a lifetime warranty that follows the gun. I love shooting my 40 but almost impossible to carry concealed.

    Just shot my buddies Hi-point .45 and my only complaints were the trigger sucked and it was damn ugly :p but it was 100% reliable and accurate once i figured out the trigger.

    I have a C-9 and it's a fun reliable firearm but has to be cleaned around every 75-100 rounds or it starts jamming up.

    I think Hi Point should have its own forum. Seems like a new thread opens up every week.

    I have a c9 with over 1000 rounds through. Great pistol for price.

    Makes a great truck gun or HD if you are not wealthy.

    Heavy. Which is good when shooting but not good for carry.

    Awesome warranty.

    Good starter gun to then decide better what you want. I went xd9sc for ccw carry. Tested for it with my c9.

    I have a high point c9 and love it! The onlu complaints I have are that the mag release triggers from the slightest bump and the mag only holds 8 rds. Other than that its a great shooter and not too heavy since they have composite lowers now, 29 oz fully loaded.

    I used to have a 9mm carbine and it was awesome. I wish I didn't get rid of it. The carbines are super tough and real accurate. I highly suggest them.

    the wife has a 380 her dad got her when she was in college, it isn't a bad gun, shoots when I pull the trigger, its ugly as hell and when compared with the 380s of today the damn thing is huge but it isn't a bad gun. If you want something to put in your pocket look for something smaller

    Experiment, push it's limits and see how hot of a load it can handle. When the gun blows, send it back and have it replaced.

    I live my high point c9 it works great. And if you want to find out better opinions of them and not I have a more expensive gun so i am king syndrome. Go to high point forums. This is what I did I read the good and bad from that site and i bought one it works just as fine as others I have but keep in mind its best in its class. It is not in the same class as a Sig. But it is a great gun.
