This has got to be the most ridiculous over generalization I've read in this thread yet.

I'm partially in agreement with you. A Hi-Point would not be my choice for a defensive carry firearm. I am fortunate enough to have the financial means to buy more expensive, better overall quality firearms (such as the G26 in my signature). My purpose of use for my Hi-Points is for recreational range use.

There are some individuals who do not have the financial means to buy a more expensive firearm. I used to be one of those individuals. For some people, a Hi-Point is their only option.

Should the ability to exercise the right to bear arms as affirmed in the 2nd Amendment have a "buy-in" price which a law abiding citizen of limited means can not reach?

I can smugly suggest that they should hold off buying a gun & save for a used pistol manufactured by one of the larger manufacturers, but what if their situation is such that they need a gun for home defense sooner than later?

If you lived close by and were willing to stand down range, (signed contract/release of<- 2 words ->course) I'd take a shot right between your eyeballs.

But I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you wouldn't take that chance.

Kettle meet Black.

So are you going to answer those questions or continue to skate around them?

Well that makes sense.

And yes, the BBQ here is pretty tasty.

As to the OP....I have purchased a couple of the C9s. Used to keep one in my boat, no longer have, and then in a tractor tool box. I take them out occasionally, dust them off, shoot them a few times, clean/lube and put back.

In addition, I will keep one in the truck/car when I can't carry into somewhere...that way I still have something for defense...heck if it jambs...I can throw it at them and knock them out!

Overall, they're not a bad gun. Just mother-in-law ugly!

Depends on which version of "The Quick and the Dead" we're talking about. There have been at least two movies I know of that used that title.

The one with Sam Elliott wasn't bad at all.

To keep this on topic.

My Hi-Point came in a cardboard box, which proves it's a high quality gun. (Bac will get this if no one else does)

For those who had input thanks, the shops gonna call me when he gets a 9mm or 45 in. It's fairly crazy at the moment there so ill wait. Haven't been online lately, been fairly tied up but I appreciate the input

Far as the guns have one purpose argument, ummm how do I say this? Not so much. Some people need to step back and turn off "preppers" for a night or two.


After recent shoulder surgery and LASIK I'm remembering shooting is fun, though its gotten a lot more expensive since I could use my right arm

There was a thread in the "olden days" when somebody posted a thread comparing their new sig to a hipoint. IIRC the hi-point didn't do too bad.

I've debated posting this as the topic seems to bring out all the overly defensive hi-point owners who claim their hi-points are GTG but won't give any empirical data to back their claims.

Ran into 2 different hi-point shooters on Thursday of this week. Neither could make it through a magazine w/o a malfunction. Finally the second made it through an entire box of 50 rounds.

To be fair I checked to make sure the shooters grip, amount of lubrication, ammunition type, etc. wasn't to blame. It wasn't any of the above.

I don't get much exposure to hi-points as most the shooters I come across have had the same experiences. Out of the 3 hi-points I've had firsthand experience w/ all 3 have been malfunction machines.

A range toy that would sit in the safe or bottom of a range bag? Yes. I just hate to hear people say they would carry such a firearm and risk human life.

That is what the original poster said he wanted the gun for in the first place. A range toy.

Would I carry one for self defense? If it was all I had you're darn right I would. God didn't see fit to bless me with long claws or sharp teeth. A single shot matchlock would be better than nothing.

I look at things a little differently. I want every tool in my bag to be able to get the job done w/o concern. I have never purchased a firearm that didn't have a reputation for being GTG. I would also never purchase or keep a firearm that created any doubt.

You may have not stated that you carry one but are just as guilty by saying you would. It encourages others to do so. I don't think it's responsible for those who should know better to recommend carrying a hi-point for defensive reasons.

If a person can set aside $150 they can find enough to purchase a quality firearm. A used Glock, M&P, a small revolver, etc.

----

As far as the comment about having nuts in order to defensively carry a hi-point, it's more along the lines of walnuts for brains to carry a crap shoot of a firearm. Might as well gamble that the bad guy will be kind and not mistreat you.

That's just your own opinion, which isn't shared by others. Some of us just want to own goofy guns for the hell of it. I can't imagine why it's so hard for you to understand that guns are fun and not always for "combat".

Show me a used Glock or a good used revolver for $150. Unlike you, many people in America are not financially secured enough to shell out several hundred dollars for a gun for self-defense. They'd be hard pressed to come up with $100.

I had a total of six malfunctions during that time. Four of those came out of one box of reloads. I sold it not long ago for almost what I paid for it. I saw no evidence of wear at all, not even the finish.
Last I'll say here, but I guess you missed this earlier. Sorry, I don't bother to keep a log book so I don't have times, dates, and number of rounds fired on this and such a day, but back when I was shooting my Hi-Point I did keep a running count going on this one. I probably had more malfunctions with a Colt Government Model I used back in my IPSC club days.

So, no. Based on my own experience I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a Hi-Point to someone who couldn't afford, or simply didn't want to spend more.

Geesh....

I've carried mine several times. My only issue has been with an additional mag I purchased...it has feeding issues when it gets down to have a mag left...but isn't always consistent.

However, I digress.....you comments underlined identify you as an elitist (or wish you were) of some sort. Carry on with your blabbering.
