    My new High Point 45

    Purchased a new High Point 45 ACP from my friend who has his FFL. .. he orders guns from a wholesaler and only charges $20 over wholesale prices for his friends at our local gun club. I ended up paying $120 for the gun. I was a bit tentative about purchasing it, but have read many great reviews of the gun... most of the bad reviews seemed to come from those who never shot one before.

    Took it to the woods in my back yard today to run some Remington UMC ammo though it. Although it is heavy, it fits the hand nicely for a range gun. It came in the OD Green color, and to my eye, it is not as ugly as others had stated. The sights are actually easy to pick up outside, especially when everything is white/snow covered here. It has two red dots in the rear, and one yellow ramp up front. It also comes with a ghost sight.

    The gun functioned flawlessly with all 100 rounds. No FTF or FTE, both in slow fire, and rapid fire. There is a bit of recoil, more so than my Glock 30 it seems. Ergonomics seemed good, but i once accidently turned on the safety during rapid fire... gotta keep my thumbs down a little. Single stack 9 round magazine seemed to work just fine, and ammo seemed to load easily.

    This does not seem like a gun i will ever carry, but i purchased it for a range gun, and just out of curiosity to see what they would be like. I like the fact that it is American owned and made, and have heard great things regarding their customer service. Seemed like it is trustworthy thus far, and cant wait to shoot it again! Now i think i may order the C9 Highpoint in 9mm....

    I know i might take a bashing for purchasing it... quite a few of my friends at my gun club were giving me grief, but all wanted to know how well it functioned. All i can say is thumbs up for now... we will see after she has 500 total rounds.

    His Remington R1 was a total jam-0-matic on the first range visit, for lots more money.

    For a $120 handgun, you should be proud that you had no problems when a fellow member had tons of jams with a Remington 1911. The High Point is UGLY but efficient and if it goes bang everytime and works for you, who cares? Enjoy the gun and enjoy that hell of a deal. There are pocket knives that are more expensive than your High Point 45 so you did good.

    That's not fare. I paid $600. for a used Para Ordnance and it is a total piece of JUNK. It has been Back to Para 2 times. They have more money in it than a new gun. I got it back, took it to the Range and this time a part fell out of the Slide. Trip #3 coming up.

    Plenty of high points for sale out there... just need to drop that hammer. I spent more on my new woods grips from Esmeralda than my new 45 High Point. Bunker
