    Picked up a Hi-Point JHP .45 Handgun at a local show a few weeks ago. I have to say for 189.90 I'm damn impressed! Shoots straight, has very little recoil and feels good in my hands. I've put 100 Rds. Of blazer Target ammo thru it with no problems at all.

    Because the magazines suck.

    There are flaws with the Hi-Point, though probably no more than any other pistol.

    Mine (C-9) ran well for about 200 rounds, and then the feed problems started. I know my way around this style of pistol, could only conclude it was the mag.

    Disassembly is horrible, you need a punch and hammer.

    Beyond that, it's a durable little gun, and as others have noted, serves a purpose until you can step up to something a little more refined.

    It's my first .45 and for the price I am happy. I hace read that the mags suck but can be adjusted. The warranty is great and I don't mind the weight of it.

    Never been a fan of any blowback operated gun in the bigger calibers. Nothing against them but they are large and unwieldy and only function well as a range blaster or truck gun IMHO...

    Makes it a better clubbing device if you run out of ammo. :)

    I got a Hi-point .380 auto in parts right now because it broke after about 600 rounds fired through it.

    They're supposed to have the greatest warranty ever, I think you should test that and let us know....

    I sell lots of Hi-Points in my gunshop, you should have it sent in for warranty, then if you are tired of it sell the new one you get from Hi-Point.
