    Hey HB.... you didn't just buy a new gun yesterday, did you?
    Nope, my little bro bought one on Saturday from total. If I was on the range you would know ...

    A Hi point is what it is. I have a .40 S&W that I keep in my shop. When I first got it I couldn't get 5 consecutive rounds through it. I came to the conclusion that it was the mag that was bad. I was right....I ordered another mag through Midway and this mag has 650 error free rounds through it. Does this mean it's a great gun....no....it just means it can be effective. Amazing thing about this gun is....it's so heavy that the recoil is non existent. If it runs out of ammo I can beat the BG over the head with it.

    LOL. That's a great quote.

    BTW, I have a HP as well. Runs just fine and will shoot out the center of the target.

    Some of the most fun I had in the Kansas National Guard was teaching 2nd Lt's how to shoot an Army 1911. We had almost as many holes in the metal roof of the shooting range as we had in the target frames down range..

    All I can add is that I'm an idiot for thinking glocks were ugly, haven't seen a hi point in awhile, lol.

    Those things are ugly as sin!!!

    Another thought: Gun with rough, nasty triggers are good for teaching ( and practicing yourself.) If you can hold your sight picture through one of these or a Sigma, etc..., think what you can do with a good trigger and better sights....just sayin'.

    I have said it before and I will say it again. My Hi-Point will shoot as well as any of my more expensive guns. I own every thing from a Glock to a Colt to a Kimber. While these guns look better and feel nicer and will out last the Hi-Point they cost much more and do not shoot any better. Would I carry this thing? Not a chance. Would I use it to defend myself? You bet I would. As someone else has said, the Hi-Point is what it is. It is a cheap gun that will do if you have nothing else. BTW my Glock and my Colt and my Kimber have all had a occasional FTF, my Hi -Point never has.

    Call me a traditionalist or maybe just an old curmudgeon, but whenever I see "HP" I immediately think Browning HP, a/k/a Hi Power. Light years apart from a Hi Point. Makes me wonder if some real doofuses ever confuse the two (e.g., thinking they got a super deal on a Hi Power but that come home with a Hi Point!).

    Along similar lines, a young guy at work asked my opinion on a "Burris" scope similar to an ACOG for $60. My first reaction was that sixty bucks won't buy much of a scope, least of all anything remotley like an ACOG. Tried to find it on line, and Burris makes nothing of the sort. He came back a little while later and said it's Barska, not Burris! Just a wee bit of difference there.

    Where I see that equipment makes a difference is once someone begins to master the skills needed, a novice will rarely see an advantage with the best.

    As I walked back to my lane the novice said loudly, “Boy! That Hi-Point is a real tack driver!”

    I don't ever recall seeing a Hi Point in a gun store, nor have I ever seen a Hi Point "Dealer" sign in a store front. That should say something.

    Hi Points have there place. If those two do nothing but learn to shoot safely Its filled its need! I know four people who own them. All of them have moved on to better more suited guns, But none of them have bad things to say about Hi Point. Two of them have sold theirs to others as a starting point, the other two kept theirs as house guns. We as a group need to encourage as many new shooters as possible, and a gun that costs less than a Video game is a good start. DR
