    Hi Points won't win a beauty contest but they do go bang every time you squueze the trigger. By offering an affordable weapon, Hi Point has enabled many families to protect themselves for a low cost.

    Here's pics of the Rossi's

    Hmmmm, I hope you're not saying a Keltec or a Bersa for that matter is only a step above a Hi Point. I for one, find the Keltecs to be worth far more than their price tag. They are excellent guns. The Bersas aint bad either.

    I don't personally own a Hi Point pistol but have shot them and know several people that do own one. As others have pointed out, they are clunky, heavy, ugly pistols that are very inexpensibe and about as basic as they can get. OTOH, the one I've shot and the reports I've received from others who own and/or shoot them is if you pull the trigger, the gun will go bang! Use it as a hammer and the gun will still go bang. Drop it in a river for a week and the gun will STILL go bang. To me, the "BANG" part is what it all boils down to.

    Would I own one personally, probably not. Still, if I owned nothing else and it was the best I could do, I wouldn't hesitate to own or use on. The bottom line is they aren't pretty or fancy or high tech and don't have any bells or whistles, but they work.

    Hmm, ugly, cheap, and reliable. I thought this was a Glock or AK thread.

    I wouldnt call them reliable by any means, but if its all you can do, its all you can do. Other than that, I say they are complete junk and wouldnt touch one.
