    Your basically going to hear the same thing over and over about this gun, so here goes. For the price, it's a pretty decent gun. They generally work as advertised, and I hear relatively few people complain about them (respective of course to how they use them). That said, this is NOT the gun to bet your life on with, it is a lower quality firearm - as indicated by the price - and while there is nothing wrong with that, it is something to keep in mind.

    If your looking for an acceptable 9mm on the lower end of the price range, try out the Bersa line of 9mm's, or possibly a Keltec. These guns have a price range of about 250-350 with Keltec being the cheaper. I would strongly recommend a look at the Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact in 9mm. Happy searching.

    I have one for shooting in the backyard.. I have ran about 1500 rounds through it and had quite a few jams or stovepipes, very finicky on ammo. I am accurate with mine and have a great time shooting it but would not bet my life with the gun. For the money you can't go wrong. I got it brand new with an extra mag for $165, you will always be able to get most of your money back when you sell it.

    Save more money and buy a better firearm. Never go cheap on something that you may have to use to protect your life.

    Regarding the HiPoint Lifetime Warranty - That's because they know that your Lifetime won't be too long if you need it to defend yourself.

    Just curious... why would you not shoot your other guns in your backyard?

    That's funny right there.

    My vote would be buy it for plinking as a 'starter gun' but there are so many other low price entry guns that are sleaker and reportedly much more reliable weapons than the Hi Point line.

    Waffle House robber that was shot and killed by a CCW'er carrying a Glock .45 was carrying a Hi-Point 9mm......sure it was not the fault of the Hi-Point,......but this is not the first time I've seen a Hi Pointer get smoked by a CCW'er carrying a Glock.....could be coincidence.....could be the CCW'er was a better shot.....could be the HiPoints just jam up at the sight of a Glock.

    Good: Robber Waffle House shot dead by CCW permit holder.

    OK, here we go. I purchased a high point 45 acp for plinking, and found the gun to be so accurate and dependable, it sleeps in the night stand next to me. Has never had a hiccup, and the sights are easily picked up by the eye. I wish i could say the same for my Glock 30... it sleeps in the gun safe. Just Sayin. Let the flames begin. OP, i do trust it with my life, but would never carry it do to its size and weight. I carry J frame revolvers for that intended purpose. Good luck. bunker

    We had one that stovepipe and all that. Sold it to a friend. He racked the slide and it locked back. Once the slide finally released days later a hook fell out of the gun, and it is inoperable. I don't know what he or the gun did, but I would want something less finicky and more robust.
