    Looks like they found the ugliest areas of a bunch of different guns and combined them all together in one.

    For 200, might not be bad for a little range fun..... except everyone will laugh at you.

    Used to work with a guy who owned a small gun shop on the side. He tried to push Hi Points on everybody he could get to talk to him.

    Now I don't own any firearms and never will because they are evil, walking death machines, but if I were a gun owner he would have told me it was pointless to have spent $500 on my Glock Foe-T when he could have gotten me the exact same thing for $300 less.

    Another time he would have asked me if I had changed my mind about Hi Points and I would have responded that it was pointless to spend that much money on a gun-shaped boat anchor.

    All assuming I own guns, of course, which I don't.

    I remember when they went for $99 brand new around here. My brother has 2 with sequential serial numbers. He gets pissed off because he can't buy a decent holster for them lol.

    They are hideous. But I've actually heard that they're pretty reliable.

    Never thought I'd see anything uglier than a Ruger P series auto but that Hi Point beats them hands down.

    Same. Some people can't afford a $500 Glock... no point in ragging on them for having less money.

    Heck, I'm thinking about getting one for a car gun.

    I used to work at a range/shop a few years back as a second job. We sold a ton of these! As with almost anything, the cheap stuff sells fairly easy. The thing is, though, everyone who bought them seemed to love them. They seemed reliable. I've never shot one, and the only bad I've heard about them has been from folks who haven't shot them either.

    With all that said, I don't think I could ever bring myself to get one. They are hideous and feel horrible in the hand. Plus, I can afford a few extra bills for something a little better. But for the guy who doesn't have a few extra bills...

    Since the beginning of firearms production, there have always been the RGs, Jennings, Hi-Points, etc.

    These low cost firearms serve a purpose, and very few enthusiasts like those who participate on this forum, have the inclination to own one.

    I wouldn't have one, but I'm glad there are Hi-Points in the night stands of people who couldn't care less about what a firearm is, but only care about what it will do.

    Hi-Points have been around for many years now........somebody is buying them!......and, I'm good with that.

    I get the point of Hi Point's(if you just want a gun and don't want to spend the $300 for a Taurus revolver) but why would anyone buy the .45? With the cost of ammo, the 9mm would be the way to go.

    I've shot the 9mm... the recoil is pretty harsh on the hand. I can't imagine shooting a .40 or .45 would be enjoyable.

    Life is too short to own cheap, ugly handguns.

    The only good thing about a hi-point is the warranty. They will replace your gun as many times as needed to find one that works. I prefer a gun that works the first time.

    Reminds me of Tommy Boy.:supergrin:
