    I wouldn't want any paperwork to link me to one, those are strictly private-sale disposable guns.

    No matter how cheap, I wouldn't even touch one with gloves and a mask. Glocks are about as ugly as I can go. To be fair though, like 'em or not, the reviewers always seem to give them good marks.

    I had a 45 at one time. It was big and heavy but it worked good.

    I'd like to take one to an IDPA match- along with one of those fancy belts with fancy mag holders n stuff! The magazines aren't cheap either. The gun would be the cheapest part of the rig!

    No pic of a C9 on the carpet? What up Bic?

    I have often thought of getting a little Makarov for the same reason. Bottom line is at $100, if it works, you win. I say go for it.

    Not unless you’re just trying to get the maximum number of guns possible to arm your whole neighborhood or something.

    I’d spend the money on ammo instead.

    Carbines would be a different story.

    never owned a Hi Point pistol, but i will vouch for their carbines . bought mine used two years ago from a local deputy for 160 bucks . i just put my 3k round thru it two days ago. it has NEVER malfunctioned . no matter what ammo i use it just works. had it tore down today cleaning it , disassembly is a chore but not horrible . when its apart you see how heavy duty the parts are , it reminds me of some eastern bloc or chi com overbuilt stuff that is crude but substantial. i will also add that it is very accurate , hits at 100 yds on an 8 inch target with open sights are doable all day long . i will probably get one of their pistols eventually just because . they are american made with lifetime warranty , i have a whole bin of spare parts for mine that they sent just because i asked them .

    Under $100? Why not.

    Yes, in a heartbeat. My requirements for a gun is that they shoot reliably, and I can shoot them accurately and easily. Hi Points meet the requirements and if I can get one for under $100 it's a bonus addition to the collection

    At that price, I would buy it just to see what they are all about, then throw it behind the truck seat or stash it in a spot in the house.

    That was my theory. The gun worked too. I bought it strictly out of curiosity. At the time, I had never shot one.

    I did too, hell I've spent money on dumber things over the years.... like a Taurus. :D

    Seriously though, just for laughs.....I had a little C9 I'd take to the range every once and awhile with a Rogers precision 1911 or a Wilson Supergrade.

    I would be tempted out of curiosity.

    Never shot one.

    They would be a great gun for canoeing or going on a float trip. Who cares if you drop it in the water.

    I watched two Kimber's in .45 malfunction once per magazine each. Also on the firing line was man (who took a lot of heat) firing a .45 Hi Point magazine after magazine. For $75.00 I would buy one just to play with.

    I'm surprised you didn't go out right then and buy one, if you were so impressed by its lack of tolerance. Why wait for $75?

    And people want to debate Taurus on this forum.
